Pets for the Elderly Foundation

Tomorrow, January 30 - Joy's guest will be Susan Kurowski with Pets for the Elderly, a non-profit foundation that was started in Ohio in 1995. The organization makes donations to participating animal shelters throughout the United States for senior citizens (over 60 years of age) who adopt a companion dog or cat from a participating shelter. Last year, the Pets For the Elderly Foundation was responsible for the adoption of nearly 5,000 animals. Presently, 59 shelters in 31 states are participating in our program.

The goal of the organization is two-fold. One is helping the elderly live a happier and healthier life. Two is finding a new home for an animal who might otherwise be euthanized. Loneliness is a serious disease for the elderly. A furry companion gives them unconditional love and friendship. For some a furry companion gives them a reason to get out of bed.

If you know an elderly person who would like to adopt a pet, but is unable to afford the adoption fees, you can contact Pets for the Elderly by calling 1-866-849-3508 or e-mailing to find a shelter in your area which receives funding from this worthwhile foundation. In Washington State, the participating shelters are The Humane Society for Seattle/King County in Bellevue (tel #425-641-0800) and The Humane Society of Cowlitz County in Longview (tel #360-577-01510).

Remember if you would like a private session with Joy to either talk with your animals or your spiritual guides/guardian angels or soul or those(human or animal)who have passed, you can call her at 425-867-1779 or e-mail her at to set up an appointment. She does the majority of her sessions over the phone so you don't have to live in the Seattle area to have a session. Nor do you have to wait for the radio show or an event to be able to talk with your animals, soul or spiritual guides/guardian angels or those(human or animal)who have passed. Also, in case you did not know, Joy works with missing animals.
