Pet-Tastic Happy Hour & Pet Food/Toy Drive
Thursday, July 25, 2013           5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Ladder 15 Philadelphia

GenPhilly hosted our 3rd Pet-tastic Happy Hour, a fun-filled evening to socialize, share laughs, and meet new friends.

Young professionals committed to promoting an age-friendly Philadelphia networked and donate d to a great program! Guests brought pet food and/or pet accessories. Donations for cats and dogs were 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 benefited Humane Society’s Philadelphia Pets for Life Program
