Animal Foundation Offers Seniors Discounted Pet Adoptions

LAS VEGAS -- Discounted animal adoptions are being offered to seniors who are 60 years and older and would like to adopt a pet.

The Seniors 4 Seniors Adoption Discount Program offers a $50 discount when a senior adopts a dog three years or older or a cat one year or older.

"Puppies and kittens have their appeal," says Diana Lammerts, assistant director for The Animal Foundation. "They're small. They're cute. Many people are interested in raising a pet, but doing so takes time, patience and countless resources. The younger pets aren't always the best choice for everyone. The pets that are a little older can make a great companions for seniors."

Seniors interested in taking part in the program must present a valid picture ID at the time of adoption. The Animal Foundation's adoption center is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 655 No. Mojave Road.
