KittyKind Offers Seniors a Special Kind of Medicine…the Love of a "Senior" Feline Friend
NEW YORK, NY – Tuesday, October 27, 2009 – KittyKind, a no-kill feline rescue and adoption organization and member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, will host its annual, "Seniors for Seniors" cat adoption event the weekend of November 14–15, at KittyKind's adoption center at PETCO, located at 17th Street and Broadway, Union Square. This event will showcase a variety of loving senior cats looking to meet their "senior" match. KittyKind's specialized adoption counselors will be available to answer questions and help make perfect senior matches.
Numerous studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits that pets can provide for senior adults. From improving their blood pressure, cholesterol levels and alertness to lowering stress, pets are vital to the health and happiness of the elderly. Senior people who are pet caregivers also make fewer visits to doctors than those who are without animal companions; so pet ownership may provide a new form of low-cost health intervention. Pets also bridge the gap for seniors by decreasing loneliness, giving a person something to care for, a sense of security, and above all…a sense of purpose and daily routine.
These wonderful animals may have retired from their hectic jobs of chasing mice and stalking feet, but their hearts have not slowed down and, more than ever, they are appreciative of a loving companion and will provide infinite amounts of loyalty, affection, and joy.
When: November 14–15, 2009, 1:00–6:00 p.m.
Where: KittyKind's adoption center at PETCO, located at 17th Street and Broadway, Union Square.
