AARC - Adoption Assistance for Retired Citizens

*Subject to availability of funds. Please ask your adoption coordinator about this program to ensure funding is available at the time of your adoption.

Offering Discount Adoptions for Seniors

Animals can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and increase social interaction and physical activity. Pets can also have an astounding effect on symptoms of depression and feelings of loneliness.

With financial help from Pets for the Elderly, SJRAS is happy to offer a reduced adoption fee for ANY adopter 60 years young or older. This program will allow seniors, some of whom are on fixed incomes, to focus on providing FOR the new pet instead of on the adoption fee. Truly a new leash on life for everyone involved!

So what are you waiting for? Stop in TODAY to meet your new best friend!
