Senior pet program expands to Fairfield

The Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary recently expanded its Senior Paw Project to support older pet owners in the towns of Fairfield, Wilton, Norwalk, Bethel, Greenwich, Danbury, Sherman, Brookfield, Newtown, Sandy Hook and Monroe.

This program, which now serves 24 towns, addresses the critical and growing needs of aging Americans who are unable to keep or care for their dogs or cats.

The Senior Paw Project provides pet food, veterinary care assistance and foster/respite care to senior pet owners struggling to keep or care for their animals. The Senior Paw Project is a referral-based program, partnering with municipal housing authorities, non-profit senior housing providers, food pantries and veterinarians.

Over the last three years, the program has provided ongoing support to more than 300 pets of older adults and more than 325,000 pet food meals.

Jennifer Hubbard, Executive Director of the sanctuary, is in awe of the impact these services have made in the state and looks forward to reaching more towns like Fairfield.

For many older pet owners living on fixed incomes, the financial needs of four-legged family members can compound emotional and physical stress for owners and pets alike. Often these animals end up in shelters across the country, adding to the nearly 7 million animals relinquished every year. By taking away the economic barriers of owning a dog or cat, the Senior Paw Project prevents new animals from entering shelters while keeping furry companions together with their loving caregivers.
