The mission of Seniors' Pet Assistance Network (SPAN) is to serve the needs of Dallas-area seniors who require assistance in caring for their companion-animals. We accomplish this by: providing financial assistance or subsidies, when available and with demonstrated need, for basis pet care needs such as grooming, food and veterinary care creating a network of relationships with Dallas-area animal welfare organizations to assist in providing new homes for pets that can no longer stay with their owners. Future plans of SPAN include providing transportation to and from veterinary clinics and other pet-related errands for homebound seniors.
SPAN serves as a volunteer resource to the elder support programs of Dallas-area senior support organizations, and, in doing so, the organization also strives to improve the quality of life for seniors' pets. A private, 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, SPAN is funded solely through donations and operated by volunteers. SPAN maintains no centralized office. Volunteers work out of their own homes or at various event locations throughout the Dallas area.
