About

The Elderly Pet Organization is a 501C3 non profit charitable organization as recognized by the IRS. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

friends-1149841_1920We are a RI based non profit organization headquartered in Northern RI. We work to provide information and education to pet parents of elderly pets and to help pet parents prepare for the illnesses and accidents that may afflict an aging pet.

A cat or small dog is considered senior at age 7, and large dogs are considered seniors at age 5 or 6. Elderly pets often require at home medical care from pet parents who may not know what to expect from an elderly pet. Our mission is to provide information and education about what to expect from a senior pet and to help keep pets with their families for as long as possible. We also hope to be able to provide free pet insurance to at risk senior pets.

We are avid pet lovers who have cared for elderly pets for many years. We are not medical professionals but we work closely with the medical community, the American Veterinary Medical Association and medical resources to provide information to pet parents about what to expect when caring for elderly pets.

If you have an elderly pet or are an avid pet lover, and would like to support the Elderly Pet Organization with its mission, please visit our Ways to Help page.
