Challenges of Having Pets

For advice on preventing falls around pets,  click here .


Finding housing that permits pets can also be a challenge.

No Paws Left Behind might be a source of help.   It is a  Not for Profit organization focused on pets as the silent victims of foreclosure.  It offers a database of pet-friendly apartments.   They can sometimes help with the deposit required by landlords for pets.    

Though not a local group, Lost our Home Pet Foundation rescues dogs that have been abandoned in foreclosed homes and acts as a resource to people facing eviction / foreclosure.


Pet care does become more challenging for anyone who experiences difficulty in bending and moving.  There are some assistive devices available to keep basic pet care within the sphere of activities that one can do independently.
