Senior Citizen Self Defense
Sadly seniors are disproportionately victimized and unfortunately many self-defense guides don’t take into consideration the limitations that often come with age, which is why we wanted to create this specific guide. It looks at steps to take to avoid becoming a victim of crime and should you find yourself in a situation and how to protect and defend yourself.
Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary
Senior Companion Program
Matching people who need dogs...with dogs who need people.
Our program focuses on helping local seniors find companionship and purpose through fostering or adopting homeless senior canines. Many of these dogs have been through very traumatic experiences and need recovery, companionship, and purpose, just like people do. Ongoing training, education, and support are provided for all of our adopters. When you adopt a senior dog from CRCS, you also adopt a new family: us! We love our dogs and the seniors who adopt them. Welcome to the family! Adoption fees are waived; donations in any amount are greatly appreciated. Call or e-mail us today, a new friendship is right around the corner!
