Mature Cats for Mature People
By FieldHaven Feline Center
The continually-successful Mature Cats for Mature People program aims at placing adult cats with seniors by waiving adoption fees and promote the adoption of adult cats. The 2nd Annual Mature Cat Adoption Day in Sun City Lincoln Hills was held in October, resulting in finding homes for several cats.
We strongly advocate the health benefits of seniors owning a pet. Research continues to produce further evidence of quantifiable benefits of having a pet, especially with the elderly. In 2007, we plan to explore additional ways to promote the Mature Cats for Mature People program.
The program is a key avenue to place adult cats, which are traditional harder to adopt out than kittens.
