Fur-ever homes for man’s best friend

There will be lots of smiles, hugs and puppy kisses this weekend.

Always Best Care in San Antonio will host a free pet adoption event for local seniors in partnership with North Park Subaru and ASPCA.

The senior care agency plans to cover 10 qualifying adopting fees for pets adopted by seniors at the event.

“With millions of Americans over the age of 65 struggling with depression, studies have shown that pet ownership helps lower stress levels and blood pressure, while also alleviating symptoms of depression,” says Patrick O’Kane, Always Best Care of An Antonio franchisee in a press release. “With so many shelter dogs and cats in need of loving homes, as well as local senior citizens in need of companionship, we are proud to partner with the Animal Defense League of Texas and share in this special moment with seniors and their loved ones.”

The pet adoption event will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Animal Defense League of Texas at 11300 Nacogdoches Road, San Antonio, TX, 78217. For more information, call 210-772-2277 or visit https://www.alwaysbestcare.com/tx/san-antonio
