Orphans of the Storm Makes It Easy for Seniors to Adopt a Friend

January/February 2015

Orphans of the Storm is proud to introduce our cat adoption program; Feline Friends for Seniors. This adoption program is designed to help senior adults better 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 aor older may select an adult cat, or two, and we will waive the $90 adoption fee and in addition we will reduce the vaccination fee of each to $60. So that the total cost to add a feline friend to your life will be $60.

Our adult cat room is home to 150 - 200 cats on any day. Our cat gallery houses another 50 - 100 easily. So you will most likely find whatever type of cat you have in mind. Our adoption counselors and volunteers are available to assist you in making the best selection for your lifestyle. 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.
