Discounted Services

Humane Society Senior Discount on Pet Adoption

Find Love at Any Age — Every Tuesday OHS offers an adoption special for people age 60 and up. A select group of approximately 20 pets (cats and dogs) will be available for adoption to seniors at no charge every Tuesday.

OHS recognizes that a pet can not only make you feel young at heart, but pets may help keep you healthy. Researchers have documented that living with pets is associated with lower blood pressure and less anxiety.


OHS will select the 20 pets each week by looking at personality traits that will be a good fit for a mature household. If a perfect match cannot be found among the 20 free pets, all other pets at the shelter will be $50 off the listed adoption fee (only for individuals 60 years of age or older). This special cannot be combined with other offers.

Health History Sheet

The Health History Sheet is a short form that informs your healthcare provider of your medical issues and physical functioning before you get sick and the state you hope to return to after you have been treated. This was adapted from Gift of Caring by Marcy Houle and Dr. Elizabeth Eckstrom. This form can be completed in two ways:

        1.  Print and complete as a paper copy
        2.  Download, fill in your answers, and save on your computer. The form is then easily accessible for making changes when needed.
