Age-Friendly Arlington reports that Arlington Animal Shelter Manager Chris Huff has said finances would not stand in the way of seniors who want to adopt a companion from the shelter. Arlington will waive animal adoption fees for seniors and offer other help as well.
Mr. Huff said Arlington Animal Services will assist older adults with pet deposits required by local landlords if they cannot afford to pay it, provide free or low-cost veterinary care, and even provide free pet food and kitty litter from the shelter’s food pantry.
If you are a senior and would like a pet for companionship but are not able to pay, contact Mr. Huff by phone (817) 459-6269 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
