Seniors, Aging and Pets by Aging In Place, National Council for Aging Care

 

We were asked to include the following highly relevant information on the Rob’s Rescues website by the National Council for Aging Care.


Getting a Pet Can Improve Aging In Place

Are you wondering how you are going to care for your pet as you age in place? Are you wondering if you should adopt a pet as you age in place? This guide will help you decide on the best choice for you. Studies have shown that owning a pet can be physically and mentally beneficial for people of all ages. In the case of senior citizens, “just 15 minutes bonding with an animal sets off a chemical chain reaction in the brain, lowering levels of the fight-or-flight hormone, cortisol, and increasing production of the feel-good hormone serotonin. The result: heart rate, blood pressure and stress levels immediately drop.

Project HOPE by the Anti-Dogfighting Campaign

The Anti-DogFighting Campaign (A.D.F.C.) has different subcategories besides just educating and helping to end dog fighting. One new project of A.D.F.C. is the Project HOPE Community Outreach program.

Project HOPE is a program designed in helping the low income families of communities with dog/cat food, blankets, dog/cat toys, towels, dog/cat collars, …etc. This program will also reach out to the small animal shelters/rescues that are barely noticed and don’t have major funding as the larger, more well-known rescues and are in need of these very same items for all their intakes. Project HOPE Community Outreach is a way to help those in need and build partnerships with many wonderful shelters/rescues.

Items donated to Project HOPE in Dalton, GA

The Project HOPE team can be found on the A.D.F.C. Facebook site. Some areas already have donation boxes in place at various business locations around town like Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.

If you are interested in making a donation to the A.D.F.C. Project HOPE, please contact us at anti-dogfightingcampaign@hotmail.com. If you are a Georgia resident, you can also contact the Team Director, Shirley Duckworth at S.duckworth.adfc@hotmail.com or the Georgia Assistant Manager, Hope Lewallen at h.lewallen.adfc@gmail.com.

The Anti-DogFighting Campaign (A.D.F.C.) is an organization that was founded in hopes to put an end to all facades of dog fighting while educating the public about the signs of dog fighting and how to report it. The A.D.F.C. advocates strive to be a voice for so many animals whose lives are harmed and injured by dog fighting. A.D.F.C. advocates also work and strive for harsher punishment for criminals who commit these crimes. A.D.F.C.’s goal is to end the cruel “sport” of dog fighting worldwide while giving the community a confidential place to report any suspicious behavior. If you suspect dog fighting, please call our tip line listed below, “private message” the Anti-DogFighting Campaign staff on our Community page on Facebook or email us and we will be more than happy to help.

Humane Society of North West GA – Beautiful dogs needing homes from this rural shelter

Smaller, rural shelters are often the most overcrowded and least funded. Rob’s Rescues is making a special point to reach out to these shelters and also try to educate the children in these areas on how they can help shelter animals.

Here are a few of the gorgeous animals sitting in this small shelter waiting for a home.  Please see these and others here :

Domino is 2 years old and would be a great companion for another dog.
Crawley is an Australian/Border Collie mix puppy who is good with other dogs and kids.
Brownie is a 6-9 month old puppy who was abandoned when his owners moved and left him in a pen with no food or water.
Rebel and Tiki are a bonded pair (must be adopted together). Both are around 3 years old. Spayed, house trained, good with kids and dogs.
Gabi is 7 years old and has been in the shelter since she was a puppy. No cats or children but there must be a special home out there for his dog that enjoys toys, walks and riding in the car.
Myles is 4 years old, good with kids and other dogs and available at the Northwest GA Humane Society
