If you are an older adult or are living with an illness or disability, and you are struggling with the day-to-day care of your pet, then PAWS NY might be able to assist.
The Housecall Program is our core program through which PAWS NY volunteers provide on-site home visits to our clients. Visits generally include:
- Dog walking
- Litter maintenance
- Medication administration
- Provision of food and water
Once a client becomes part of the Housecall Program, PAWS NY is able to provide holistic, wrap-around pet care services as needed. Click here to learn about our Additional Services.
