SENIORS FOR SENIORS
Seniors for Seniors is a program that matches senior people wanting companionship with an adult or senior pet who needs a home.
This really amounts to a permanent foster program. The senior person selects the pet they want, takes it home and provides it with food and flea control. Maranatha Farm provides heartworm prevention, spay or neuter, all vaccinations and worming, as well as any medical care ever required by the pet.
Free boarding at Maranatha Farm is included, whenever the senior person wants.
In the event the senior person becomes unable to care for the pet, it is returned to Maranatha Farm.
No adoption fee is charged for this program but the person must fill out an Adoption Application and qualify the same as an adopter.
