Program pairs lonely older Mainers with cats that need homes

DEXTER, Maine — A new adoption application that aims to increase the effectively-currently being of seniors who stay by itself pairs them with cats in need to have of properties.

Furever Friends, a project created by the Dexter Age Helpful Group, gained a $5,000 grant from the Maine Group Foundation this summer and launched in Oct. The software has connected seven area seniors with cats and programs to make much more matches.

The felines arrive from Spirits Put, a cat sanctuary that opened in 2016 and cares for feral and group cats on its 15-acre residence in St. Albans.
