Thursday, July 25, 2013 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Join GenPhilly for our 3rd Pet-tastic Happy Hour, a fun-filled evening to socialize, share laughs, and meet new friends.
Network with young professionals committed to promoting an age-friendly Philadelphia and donate to a great program! Guests are encouraged to bring pet food and/or pet accessories. Donations for cats and dogs will be collected on site for pet companions owned by frail and isolated older adults in Philadelphia.
Did you know that one third of Philadelphia's seniors have a pet in their home? Pets offer older adults unconditional love, relieve isolation, and help elders to cope with loss. Check out Philadelphia Corporation for Aging’s short report on pets and seniors for more information and learn even more through www.phillypetsandseniors.org!
Donations benefit Humane Society’s Philadelphia Pets for Life Program
Pets for Life builds humane communities using innovative strategies and fresh approaches designed to extend the reach of animal services, resources, and information to under-served areas. Addressing the critical need for accessible, affordable pet care, our program helps animals by empowering the people who care for them. www.humanesociety.org
