About

Give back to seniors and their pets!

Often, pets provide seniors companionhip and give comfort. Yet, some seniors experince low mobility and have a difficult time giving basic pet care to their companions.

Must have proir experince (many years) with pets (have them now, or once had them). Why not put those skills to good use and help low to moderate income seniors in Long Beach, provide care for their pets.

By dedicating an hour or two a week, your pet care skills will give an older adult the opportunity for their pet to remain in their home. Studies show that pets give seniors companionship and relieves depression and stress.

Must have prior skills and expereince. Heart of Ida provides senior-safety training, insurance, and background checks. Next Training Day is March 4, 2017.
