Feline Friends for Seniors

Helping seniors take on pets

We are proud to introduce our cat adoption program, Feline Friends for Seniors. This adoption program is designed to help senior adults afford the initial costs to take on an adult cat as a pet. On any day at Orphans of the Storm, any senior age 65 and older may select an adult cat or two, and we will waive the $90 adoption fee and reduce the vaccination fee of each cat to $60.

Our adult cat room is home to 150-200 cats on any day. Our cat gallery houses another 50 to 100 easily. So whatever type of cat you have in mind, you will most likely find here. Our adoption counselors and volunteers are available to assist you in making the best selection for your life-style. You never need an appointment to visit and discover your next feline companion.

Along with companionship, elderly pet owners experience the many health benefits that come with caring for a cat such as reduced stress and blood pressure levels. You can also count on improved mental and physical health and an increase in overall happiness.
