We found a great partnership when we combined forces with the Muncie Delaware County Senior Citizen Center. They provide enriching activities and services to our aging population and we wanted to offer something unique that many would benefit from. It’s a win-win for both of our groups because we can network with people that may not have ever heard of our services and then in return, we can spread the word about this center and what they offer.
Our outreach program launched at the Senior Citizen Center’s Wellness Day in September 2018. Groups and organizations that help the aging population had information tables set up and offered free screenings and flu shots. I was on hand to talk to people about their pets and talk to them about how our services can help.
How Sit-Stay-Play Helps Seniors
Age comes with many benefits. And it shouldn’t stop a person from keeping their pet (or adopting one), unless health (physical and/or mental), finances or living conditions become a factor.
In saying that, as people age, things like walking the dog or bending over to clean cat litter boxes may become difficult. Taking your dog to his routine grooming appointments might also become a problem.
That’s where we can help. We offer dog walking, cat box cleaning and even pet nail trims and grooming services.
Free Pet Nail Trims for Seniors at Our Events
One of the ways we help seniors and their pets is by offering free pet nail trims for people over 55 at any of our regular pet nail trim events.
Other pet-related services we provide to seniors are discounted. We feel it’s important that as people age, services like nail trimming and other pet services remain important and possible.
We host (on average) 6 nail trim events per month. We set up at the Tractor Supply stores in Muncie, Anderson and New Castle AND go to Anderson Pet Valu.
These services are first-come, first-served and we provide a sign in sheet to make sure we take people in the order in which they arrived. Anyone is welcome to attend, and the normal price is $7-$10 per pet but again, it’s free if you’re over 55.
Be sure to sign in when you get there!

We hope this service helps many individuals and that it allows them to keep their pet longer. If you know someone that needs our help please call 765-744-5688.
