Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society recognizes that love for a pet knows no age limit. Sophie’s Seniors for Seniors is a program whereby local senior citizens may adopt an older pet from Lucy Mac for a reduced adoption fee. It has long been proven that senior citizens who own pets are generally healthier, happier and better able to cope with stressful life events. Lifestyle requirements of an older person often mix well with the lifestyle of an older pet. It’s a win/win situation, resulting in quality retirement companionship for both.
After the adoption, Lucy Mac will continue to work with the adopter to facilitate veterinary care and transportation to appointments, behavioral consultation and general training, and regularly scheduled interaction to ensure the well-being of both the person and the pet. If the owner should pre-decease the pet, Lucy Mackenzie will take care of the pet for as long as it takes to find another loving home.
The Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society has been proud to serve the needs of all of the people and pets of the Greater Woodstock Community almost 100 years.
