Humane Society offers seniors free pet adoption

The Peninsula Humane Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are teaming up and waiving adoption fees for residents over the age of 55 who come in through the end of February to adopt pets.

Shelter spokesman Scott Delucchi said senior citizens make great pet owners because they have the time to devote to a pet, as well as generally being more stable. Thousands of animals are brought to Bay Area animal shelters each year because their owners are moving and cannot take their pets to the new home.

Adoption fees will be waived until Feb. 28, according to the organization. People interested in adopting a pet can contact the organization at (650) 340-7022 or on its Web site at http://www.phs-spca.org.
