‘Seniors for Seniors’ places cats who otherwise wouldn’t have a home so they can live out the rest of their lives with dignity in a loving, caring environment.
Metairie, LA (PRWEB) November 06, 2015
For more than thirty-five years, State Farm agent Susan Price Geoghegan has been insuring a plethora of clients in the Metairie area, and for the past seventeen years, in conjunction with SpayMart, has also been ensuring that a multitude of senior people and senior cats have companionship. To further match seniors with cat companions and spur cat adoption, Susan is helping to bring awareness to November’s “Adopt-a-Senior-Pet” Month.
“This is an outstanding program that not only gives these older cats a place to call home, but these wonderful seniors a new friend to care for,” said Susan. “‘Seniors for Seniors’ places cats who otherwise wouldn’t have a home so they can live out the rest of their lives with dignity in a loving, caring environment.”
SpayMart, established in 1998, takes in rescues, kittens/cats that have been given to them and ones that they have found, and also helps rehabilitate injured animals. In addition to “Seniors for Seniors,” SpayMart Kitten Foster takes kittens to high-traffic PetSmarts and Petcos to be adopted.
“Because of SpayMart, about 300 kittens are able to be adopted each year,” said Susan. “Prior to adoption, kittens are kept in foster homes so they won’t be euthanized. Once adopted, adoption fees cover spaying/neutering and vaccinations.”
SpayMart is a humane society that has a dream: that we will wake up in a city no longer filled with hundreds of thousands of neglected and starving animals roaming the streets. SpayMart also hopes that dogs and cats will be sterilized by responsible owners or caregivers and pets will not be euthanized because of a lack of good homes.
