Adopting a Senior Pet

Adopting a Senior Pet

It is hard to believe that it is November. Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month? The month is dedicated to helping senior pets find homes. Puppies and kittens are cute, but older pets make great companions and are just as loving as younger pets.

There are some great advantages to adopting a senior pet. According to the ASPCA website:

  • "Grown-up pets don’t require the constant monitoring and training that puppies and kittens do.
  • Many are already housetrained.
  • Since senior pets are fully grown, you’ll be immediately aware of important information like personality type and grooming requirements, making it easier to choose the perfect pet for your family.”

If you adopt a senior pet, you are giving them a great second half of life. Consider adopting a senior dog or cat from a local animal shelter.
