Pets For Seniors is a local program helping seniors cope with loneliness and isolation.

We provide Companion Pets to those in need,
especially for special occasions
like birthdays and holidays.

Companion Pets have been proven to help seniors in multiple ways - mentally, socially and physically.

Companion Pets are realistic animals that respond to sound, touch and movement thanks to built in sensors. Heads move, mouths open and tails wag when activated. Cats purr and meow when you stroke their realistic fur. The pups pant and bark when you scratch their ears and hold them close.

Calms Anxiety

According to a study published by James Madison University the use of robotic companion cats enhances the well-being and quality of life of individuals with dementia by providing companionship and interaction with their environment, which helps to reduce anxiety and agitation. Companion pets don’t need care required by traditional pets.

Stimulates conversation

The power of play is undeniable and enhances positive experiences for both caregivers and their patients. As we age communication becomes difficult between the generational gap. Companion pets introduce a topic of conversation.

Ease Dementia and Social Isolation

For dementia patients social isolation is a common problem. A pet allows the patient to practice empathy and experience a connection to their environment. Because these pets require no care they are the perfect companion.​

Improve Behavior

Daily consistent routines help improve behavior in older adults. When these pets are incorporated into daily activities older adults achieve a sense of purpose which can improve behavior without the use of drugs

Award Winning

These types of therapy pets have won multiple awards from the Dementia Society and Today’s Caregiver organization. Additionally, there have been studies from James Madison University and the Association of Relatives of Alzheimer Patients with positive results.
