Senior Pet Program Expands to Fairfield

Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary recently expanded its Senior Paw Project to support owners of older pets in the towns of Fairfield, Wilton, Norwalk, Bethel, Greenwich, Danbury, Sherman, Brookfield, Newtown, Sandy Hook and Monroe.

This program, which now serves 24 cities, meets the critical and growing needs of aging Americans who are unable to keep or care for their dogs or cats.

The Senior Paw Project provides pet food, veterinary assistance, and foster/respite care to senior pet owners who are struggling to keep or care for their pets. The Senior Paw Project is a referral-based program, in partnership with municipal housing authorities, non-profit senior housing providers, food pantries and veterinarians.

Over the past three years, the program has provided ongoing support for over 300 older adult pets and over 325,000 pet food meals.

Jennifer Hubbard, executive director of the sanctuary, is impressed with the impact of these services in the state and looks forward to reaching other cities like Fairfield.

For many senior pet owners living on a fixed income, the financial needs of four-legged family members can add to emotional and physical stress for both owners and pets. Often, these animals end up in shelters across the country, adding to the nearly 7 million animals abandoned each year. By removing the economic barriers to owning a dog or cat, the Senior Paw Project prevents new animals from entering shelters while keeping furry companions with their loving caregivers.
