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!
