- HWAH Senior Pet Safety Net
While HWAH cannot take any dogs or cats, we have developed the HWAH Senior Pet Safety Net to get an email out to our network of over 1100 people. We use it to increase the chances of finding a home for some senior dogs or senior cats. To be considered for the Safety Net email, you must completely fill out the form below. All information is required, but if some information is not available due to the circumstances of the pet, indicate that on the form.
The completed form does not guarantee that an email will go out. If the email is sent, interested parties would contact YOU directly about your pet. Our role is strictly to assist getting the message out.
A picture increases the chances of having a pet adopted. Therefore, be sure to attach photo(s) of your pet to the online form.
