"With millions of Americans over the age of 65 struggling with depression, studies have shown that pet ownership helps lower stress levels and blood pressure, while also alleviating symptoms of depression," said Lynn Hancock, Always Best Care of Richmond franchisee. "With so many shelter dogs and cats in need of loving homes, as well as local senior citizens in need of companionship, we are proud to partner with the SPCA of Richmond and share in this special moment with seniors and their loved ones."
