Jen and Laura dreamed of a safe haven for senior animals that are generally considered "less adoptable" or "difficult to place." As owners and lovers of elderly pets, they realized these animals needed their help and homes.
Senior Pet and Animal Rescue (SPAAR) transformed that dream into a heartfelt reality.
SPAAR is committed to educating the public about the advantages of adopting a senior animal and on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We work directly and individually with pet owners to help keep senior animals with their families and in their homes, reducing the number of senior animals that are surrendered to shelters.
At this time, SPAAR is a 100% foster-based, 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization located in Pittsburgh, PA. While our long-term plan includes a safe, comfortable space dedicated to senior animals, currently all of our animals, including those in hospice care, reside in foster homes.
