Every year many elderly people in Juneau County are forced to give up their beloved pet because they are facing a health or financial crisis.   This is a heartbreaking situation for the owner and the animal.  We would like to help.  Our Elderly Assistance Program is designed to assist persons 60 years old and older in keeping their pet with them for as long as possible.  We have members who are willing to assist with dog walking, grooming, driving pets to the veterinarian, and even helping to purchase cat or dog food if necessary.  Pets and the elderly. A Good Mix!

To ease your mind about the future of your pets, we also offer  'Guardian Angels' , a program that assures your pet will be taken care of in the event of your illness or death.  There is no cost for this program.  Please contact one of our board members if you have questions about comlpeteing a Guardian Angels form.   

If you know of someone who could use a hand contact:  Elderly Coordinator, 608-847-4060 or click here to submit form.
