What’s with the Green Dots?

You’ll notice green dots on some of the animal’s profile pictures. They also show up on the kennel cards at the shelter.

These stickers indicate that these cats are seniors (ages 8 and older). Through a generous grant from the Doris Day Animal Foundation (DDAF), the Animal Welfare Society (AWS) is able to offer post-adoption support to the adopters of senior cats While funds last, adopters of senior cats are eligible for up to $100 in qualified, non-routine veterinary care. Qualified care can include dental cleaning, surgery or certain prescription medications. In addition to this generous grant support, AWS has also waived adoption fees on senior cats in the month of October. More information is available at the AWS Adoption Center.
