VINELAND, N.J. -

A South Jersey animal shelter has been selected to take part in a national program to help connect the area's elderly with furry companions.

The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter in Vineland has been selected as a new shelter partner member of the National Pets for the Elderly Foundation.

The foundation is a non-profit that pays a portion of the fee for senior citizens 60 years of age or older to adopt a companion dog or cat from participating animal shelters.

Officials with the shelter say they are thrilled to be a part of a program that has helped tens of thousands of pets find loving homes with senior citizens seeking furry companions.
