SHREVEPORT, La., Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, Always Best Care of Shreveport, in partnership with Pet Savers of Shreveport will host a free pet adoption event for local seniors from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. throughout October 2017, at the Pet Savers of Shreveport, located at 4380 Noyes Drive, Shreveport, LA 71119.

"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," said Keith Carter, Always Best Care of Shreveport franchisee. "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 Pet Savers of Shreveport and share in this special moment with seniors and their loved ones."
As part of their commitment to giving back to the communities they serve, Always Best Care also offers an exclusive program called Always In Touch, a telephone reassurance program that provides a friendly voice each weekday for seniors and disabled adults. In addition, Always Best Care has served as a national sponsor of the Alzheimer's Association and various food and educational drives.

About Pet Savers of Shreveport
We feel all animals are deserving of a home and safe place to live, regardless of how large or small, cute or homely, perfect or disabled. Because many of the pets we save are strays, we cannot guarantee that they are house-trained, good with children, good with other pets, friendly or unfriendly. We simply don't know their history unless the owners gave them up for adoption.
We rely on donations to keep up our work. If you can help us with donations or by volunteering, we welcome you. For more information please contact Pet Savers of Shreveport at 318-636-0400 or visit http://www.petsaversshreveport.org.
