My Fox Atlanta

ATLANTA - Seniors looking for companionship are turning to a special matchmaker, and for many they're finding it's puppy love all over again.
When 74-year-old Polly Hall goes somewhere, her friend Wilma, a 12-year-old dog, isn't far behind.
"She is just a joy to have," said Hall.
As a senior, Hall was used to being on her own. A few months ago, her granddaughter convinced her a dog might be good for her.
"You've got someone to take care of. You know you have to be responsible. She's really a joy to take care of, too," said Hall.
Wilma, a breast cancer survivor, came into Hall's life through the Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program at Crabapple Knoll Veterinary Clinic.
