Senior companionship: Centennial Village

This past spring we photographed more than 20 seniors and their dogs and cats at Centennial Village - a subsidiary of Cook Inlet Housing Authority.

The goal of this project is to encourage architects, planners, administrators and policy makers to incorporate animal companionship into residential lifestyles for senior citizens.  The rewards of having a dog, cat or other animal companion as a family member are amazing:  A sense of purpose, love, mental and physical well-being.

June 5, from 3-5 p.m. we will unveil a lasting exhibit for all to cherish.  Dogs, large and small; cats, loving and grouchy, will be on display at Centennial Village.

Please join us there if you can.  Several of the featured dogs and cats will be on-hand to soak up your praise.

This project was funded with support from Millers Photo Lab and the It's Important to Paws series of books.
