Find Love at Any Age
Every Tuesday OHS offers an adoption special for people age 60 and up. A select group of 15 pets will be available for adoption to seniors at no charge every Tuesday. All other pets will have their adoption fees reduced by $50 when they are adopted by individuals over 60 on Tuesday.
OHS recognizes that a pet can not only make you feel young at heart, but pets may keep you healthier. Researchers have documented that living with pets is associated with lower blood pressure and less anxiety.
OHS will select the 15 pets each week by looking at personality traits that will be a good fit for a mature household. If a perfect match cannot be found among the 15 free pets, all other pets at the shelter will be $50 off the listed adoption fee (only for individuals 60 years of age or older).
