Due to the high cost of their veterinary care and a stigma of being “less adoptable,” older cats and dogs are one of the most at-risk groups of being placed on the euthanasia list at overcrowded shelters. This is why we are committed to giving seniors the second chance they deserve by placing them in foster or adoptive homes and providing the necessary medical care to allow for a quality of life.
Due to limited resources, Newman Nation: Senior Pets United prioritizes senior cats and dogs meeting one or more of the following:
At-risk in a shelter
Over 10 years of age
In need of immediate medical attention
Requiring palliative care or hospice
We can occasionally take owner surrenders and place them into a Newman Nation foster home. We do encourage owners to exhaust all other options first.
