ElderDog is a national, 100 percent volunteer-driven non-profit organization dedicated to ageing people, ageing dogs, and the important connection they enjoy.
Its purposes are to:
- Assist and support older adults in the care and well-being of their canine companions
- Promote the welfare of older dogs whose lives have been disrupted due to illness, relocation or death of a human companion
- Educate about the human-animal bond in general and the significant role of companion animals in the health and well-being of seniors
- Support and conduct research into the human-animal bond with a focus on seniors and canine companionship
The organization is always looking for new volunteers on PEI to help with in-home care (such as dog walking, transportation to/from vet visits), foster families for temporary pet care, and/or fundraising and PR activities.
