PETsCan is a community-based program of the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center (RADC) at Rush University Medical Center. PETsCan is designed to help pet-owners with financial limitations, lack of transportation and physical limitations keep and care for their dogs and cats.
Research is finding that pet-ownership may lead to physical and mental well-being. Pet ownership may provide a sense of belonging and a sense of meaningful existence. Community participation is vital to the mission of the RADC. PETsCan’s approach allows us to achieve our goal of improving the well-being of individuals in the communities we serve.
