"Forever Young" Senior Program
supports senior animals

Matthew Young

Founded in loving memory of Matthew Young, beloved son of former Agoura Animal Shelter volunteers Karla and Thor Halseth, the Forever Young program is devoted to funding medical care for senior animals.

Matthew spent most of his growing up years helping his mom Karla and his stepdad Thor with the many animals that were blessed to spend time in their home. He and his family fostered and adopted many of the Agoura Animal Shelter's most senior and medically needy animals. Matthew valued animals of all ages – and each and every one, no matter their age, thrived under his tender loving care.

Forever Young funds medical care for senior animals thus providing a second chance at finding their forever home. The medical care might be as simple as a Senior Wellness exam to determine an animal's current health, something more involved such as a dental cleaning, or a more challenging condition that requires surgery and prescription medications. Whatever these precious seniors need, Forever Young will ensure them their care is funded thus encouraging an adopter to take a chance on a senior pet.

Forever Young is a lasting tribute to a young man who gave unconditional love to many animals throughout his life. Please consider donating to Forever Young...your donation will help a precious senior begin their journey towards adoption and honor Matthew's lifetime devotion and care of the homeless senior animals he cherished.

Who We Are

Healthcare for Homeless Animals (HHA), formerly Malibu Pet Companions (MPC), is a community-based, all volunteer-operated, non-profit 501c3 organization. Our mission is to fund medical care for sick, injured, and unweaned homeless pets at the Agoura Animal Shelter (part of LA County Animal Care and Control). Care includes prescription medicines, surgery (including spay/neutering if not yet altered) diagnostic testing, and special food.

We depend on donations to provide the medical treatment these animals need so they can be restored to good health and subsequently adopted into loving homes. By funding their care, we save their lives and give them a second chance!

Donations of any size or amount are always appreciated, including gift cards to PetSmart, PetCo, and Costco!
