Adoption Discounts for Seniors and Military

S to SSenior-to-Senior Program: We are now offering a discounted adoption fee to all senior citizens (65 years and older). Our Senior-to-Senior program allows animals that are 6 years of age, or older, to be adopted to senior citizens with no adoption fee. Pets younger than 6 years of age can be adopted by a senior citizen for 50% off the regular adoption fee. We believe that animals provide therapy for persons of all age and would like to give senior citizens the ability to adopt a pet at a reduced cost.






Military Discount: All current military members and veterans are eligible for a 25% discount on the adoption fee of any pet. As a special “thank you” to those who are defending or have defended our country, we can’t think of a better way to honor members of the military than giving them a discounted adoption fee.

If you have questions about either of these discounts, feel free to contact us at info@homewardonline.org.
