SPAAR Runs for a Reason
Senior animals are worth fighting (and running) for. Consider running for our reason in the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon event weekend. We're excited to participate in this unique fundraiser and hope you'll join us.
As a contributing charity, Senior Pet and Animal Rescue requires no minimum fundraising donation from you. Any contribution goes directly toward our mission: to use grassroots community efforts to help keep senior animals with their families and rescue, re-home, rehabilitate, and provide hospice for those senior pets looking for a family of their own.
Get your running game on, and let's do this...together.
Charity Runner Spotlight - Rebecca (and Vixen)
Why did you decide to become a charity runner?
I decided to become a charity runner, because it makes the run more motivating and meaningful. Long runs are tough, but when you know that someone is counting on you, it enables you to push on!
What do you love about senior animals?
Senior animals are special, because they just want to be in your life. They seem to have an appreciation for the care you give them, and they are so chilled out and full of love.
What would you tell others thinking about adopting a senior?
If you’re considering adopting a senior, you are giving them a chance to have a high quality of life, and you are getting a lot of love and loyalty. They are special fur babies!! While it’s not always easy because they sometimes need additional assistance, they help to bring out the best in everyone around them.
Tell us more about you and your family!
We have a senior who is a Cavalier King Charles. Her name is Miss Vixen, and she is my sweet girl. I work from home, and she is always right nearby acting as my assistant. She has a brother named Hank, and he is a Springer Spaniel. He helps to keep her active, because she is a lady of leisure, and she would sleep her days away without him!
