Pets of Older Persons (POOPSWA) (MVRC)

POOPS WA is an incorporated non-profit association staffed entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers are police-cleared and provide a range of services including home visits, animal feeding, dog walking and transport to/from vet clinics or boarding kennels. We cater specifically for people over 65 years of age – or palliative-care patients of any age – who have no relatives or friends willing or able to take responsibility for their pets in times of need. Pets are vital to many elderly people. They provide loyal companionship, give their owners a purpose in life, enable them to remain in their own homes for longer and are particularly important for the socially isolated. However, age, medical emergency and disability can prevent many owners from being able to fully care for their pets and this is where POOPS can help.
