Senior Cat

Pets who are 6 years old or over are available for adoption at no cost to adopters who are age 65 and older!

Why should seniors adopt a senior?

Having a pet to care for brings joy and purpose to your life, gives you a reason to get out and exercise, helps you live longer, and best of all, brings you unconditional love, which is definitely beneficial to your health!

Plus, studies have shown the following benefits to having a cat or dog:

  • lower blood pressure and cholesterol
  • reduced stress
  • reduced risk of heart disease
  • faster surgical recovery
  • helps to fight loneliness and depression
  • stimulus to exercise
  • longer, happier life in general!


Training Programs

Honor Roll Logo


The shelter pays for a positive-reinforcement-based trainer to train select dogs in the shelter twice a week. This training helps the dogs learn good manners and makes their transition into a new home go more smoothly. Once adopted, the Honor Roll dogs' adopters may receive a free session with the trainer in order to learn what the dog has been taught through this program. Going forward, training may continue with the same trainer at a discounted rate.

If you're a positive-reinforcement-based trainer interested in participating in the Honor Roll program, email april.peiffer@wilco.org.
