Finding 'fur-ever' homes for the cats and kittens of Las Vegas
Over 4,050 kitties adopted out since August 2007
PALS & Bequests
Despite the excess of kittens born in Clark County each
spring, they are easily adopted since everyone prefers
a kitten. Senior kitties however, aren’t that lucky. The
PALS program helps Homeward Bound connect senior
kitties with senior citizens on a limited income.
Benefits of adopting an older kitty:
Less maintenance - you don't have to go through the stages of raising a kitten, older cats are already spayed/neutered and have all their shots
More independent - older cats are purrfect for busy people
Less training - older cats are litter-box and human trained, they know how to be a good kitty
No surprises - you'll know right away what the kitty's personality is like, they've already grown INTO it!
Less mischief - older cats aren't as curious so you don't need to kitten-proof your home
EZ transitions - older cats handle change better than kittens
Good with Kids - older cats are less rambunctious than kittens and are a more durable better choice for small children
Seniors with seniors - older cats are a good choice for older people who might pre-decease a younger cat or kitten. Older cats often have trouble finding new homes since most families want kittens or young cats.
How 'older' is older? Some veterinary professionals identify kitties that are seven and up as older. Because some kitties live well into their teens or twenties, we at Homeward Bound see this as a great opportunity to give a 'fur-ever' home to one of these wonderful souls.
If by chance a senior person adopts a younger kitty
of course we hope that they have found a great
rejuvenating companion. Should the senior's health
deteriorate, however, we want that special pet parent
to know that their kitty will continue to live their
lives in a safe and nurturing environment. By initiating
a Bequest on behalf of their kitty to Homeward
Bound, we guarantee that kitty will be cared for with
the same love and respect for the remainder of their life.
