Making the World a Better Place For All of Us
About Constant Companions
When caring for a pet becomes physically challenging for seniors, veterans, and others, our Constant Companions volunteers offer in-home assistance.
These volunteers can:
- walk the dog
- clean the litter box
- provide a ride to the vet or groomer
- administer the pet’s medication
- other tasks needed to ensure the pet’s well-being
Constant Companions volunteers ensure that these animals are cared for and can safely stay at home, exactly where their people need them.
Do You Qualify for Constant Companions?
The Constant Companions program is designed as a safety net for seniors, veterans and others on government financial assistance who don’t have other resources available to help them care for their pet.
If you’re interested in having a Constant Companions volunteer help you, please complete this request form. We will reach out to you after receipt of the request.
