Two Pups Wellness Fund Launches ‘Grown Pups for Grown Ups’ Program
Two Pups Wellness Fund has officially launched its new program to help get older dogs at the Maricopa County Care and Control (MCACC) adopted.
Grown Pups for Grown Ups will spotlight dogs five years and older and address in advance the roadblocks and concerns that might prevent their adoption.
“People are sometimes hesitant to adopt an older dog because they’re afraid something may be medically wrong,” said Mary Martin, director of MCACC. “The reality is, these dogs can and do make great companions and still have a lot of life left in them.”
MCCAC will house the Grown Pups in newly refurbished rooms. The bright, new rooms make it easier for potential adopters to see and interact with these older dogs. Grown Pups for Grown Ups aims to show people that adopting an older dog may suit someone’s lifestyle better than a puppy that needs housetraining and lots of activity.
“We are committed to doing whatever we can to provide funding for medical care that will help get more dogs and cats adopted,” states Nancy Silver, founder of Two Pups Wellness Fund. “Older dogs are often overlooked, and we want to change that.”
People interested in helping the Grown Pups for Grown Ups program can donate directly through the Two Pups Wellness fund.
Nancy Silver, co-owner of The Paper Place, founded and launched Two Pups Wellness Fund in spring 2017. Since its inception, it has helped more than 1,500 animals. Most recently, Two Pups funded a new state-of-the-art dental machine at MCACC, which will improve the overall health of homeless neglected animals and make them more adoptable.
