There are two foster cats, Uma and Tommy, who are lifting our senior residents’ spirits at The Farrington at Tanglewood, a Pegasus Senior Living community in Houston.
We’re so thankful to our Farrington foster friends, local organization Friends For Life Animal Shelter! Memory Care Director, Edward Esguerra Craft, started a foster program and partnership with this amazing shelter for multiple reasons:
- Pet therapy provides a lot of benefits for people living with dementia.
- Having pets provide our folks a sense of purpose such as taking care of the animals, feeding them and playing with them.
- Since Uma and Tommy are foster pets, we are opening up space at the Friends For Life Animal Shelter so they can rescue more animals.
- We will hopefully help our fosters find their fur-ever homes!
With the growing concerns about the coronavirus, these furbabies have been nothing but sweet and loving during these tumultuous times. We are grateful for our newest furry residents!
