The senior care agency plans to cover all qualifying adoption fees for all pets adopted by seniors 65 and older during this time. Ouachita River Valley Animal League of Monroe will provide for any medical expenses an adopted pet may need.
"In our local community there are so many shelter dogs and cats in need of loving homes, and we've found that the seniors we care for experience immeasurable benefits from pet ownership," said Kristen Lambrecht, Always Best Care of Monroe franchisee. "Studies continue to prove that pet ownership helps lower stress levels, blood pressure and depression. By teaming up with The Humane Society of Monroe and Ouachita River Valley Animal League of Monroe, we plan to cover pet adoption fees in an effort to combat the ongoing issue of depression in Americans over the age of 65. We're excited to help connect seniors and their loved ones with pets in need of a home."
