The Silver Paws Fund ensures senior animals receive the extra medical care they need so they can start a new chapter of their lives while giving peace of mind to the people who love them. There are many reasons why senior animals are brought to the shelter. Sometimes, if an owner is elderly or ill, life changes can affect their ability to care for their pet any longer.
The average amount spent on a senior animal (dogs 8 years and over and cats 10 years and over) is $381. OAHS provides needed medical care for seniors with conditions such as Hyper- and Hypothyroidism, dental issues requiring cleaning and/or extractions, arthritis, and other undiagnosed issues that may be found. Your donation to Silver Paws will give senior pets get a healthy, new start. Please consider making your gift to Silver Paws today.
