November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month


November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
This National Pet Event is sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

There are many reasons a senior pet may end up in an animal shelter.
Many families are unable to care for their pets and have turn them over to animal shelters in hopes of finding them a new forever home. This is heart breaking.

Some senior pets are owned by single senior owners that have passed away, leaving loving companions all alone in search of a new home. We know of one such pet in our community that has found a new forever home and we will share that story with you this month.

Even though a lot of families will pick a young kitten or puppy from a shelter there are great advantages to choosing a senior pet. Most senior pets are already trained and tend to be calmer.
Senior pets still have a lot of love to share and should be consider when looking for a new addition to your family.

If you are considering a new pet please save the life of a pet waiting for a forever home in one of our area animal shelters.
