To all the fellow feline friends: Help a senior with cat care in Bayside
ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services
Please visit the new page to apply.
Studies show that having a pet can significantly improve a person's mental and physical health. Many seniors have pets, but need a little help caring for them. HELP A SENIOR KEEP THEIR PET!!
I currently have a senior in Bayside and they need help with cat care. Could you help, even once a week for six months?
Volunteers are needed to visit with the senior, and help them care for their pet. The volunteers might walk a dog, clean a litter box, pick up pet food or litter, take a pet to the vet and/or foster a pet if the senior becomes hospitalized. We are looking for volunteers to do some or all of these things.
Friendly visiting is an easy, fun, rewarding way to become involved in your community. We only ask for one hour per week (or more if YOU chose)! Many seniors want to play cards or games and go for walks. This is a great way to make a difference in someone's life and their pets life!
