Senior pet program extended to Fairfield

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

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

The Senior Paw Project provides pet food, veterinary care assistance, and foster/rest care for senior pet owners who are struggling to look after or care for their animals. The Senior Paw Project is a referral-based program, partnering with municipal housing authorities, nonprofit senior housing providers, food pantries, and veterinarians.

Over the past three years, the program has provided ongoing support to more than 300 older adult pets and more than 325,000 pet food.

Jennifer Hubbard, Executive Director of the sanctuary, is amazed by the impact this service has on the state and looks forward to reaching more cities like Fairfield.

For many older pet owners living on steady incomes, the financial needs of a four-legged family member can add emotional and physical stress to both the owner and the pet. Often these animals end up in shelters across the country, adding to the nearly 7 million animals that are released each year. By removing the economic barriers of owning a dog or cat, the Paw Senior Project prevents new animals from entering shelters while keeping furry friends together with their loving caregivers.
