Senior pet2

It’s always a good time to adopt your new best friend, but why not consider adopting a senior dog or cat during the month of November in celebration of Adopt a Senior Pet Month? Open your heart to a senior pet from your local shelter or rescue group. Many of these sweet animals have lived most of their lives with a family, only to have been surrendered as older adults. You can help turn their lives around…and get a calm, loving, and well-trained companion while you’re at it.

Here in San Diego, the San Diego Humane Society is waiving adoption fees for all animals 7 years and older during the month of November. You can find similar incentives at shelters and rescue groups all over the country.

  1. I adopted a 6-year-old dog two years ago and a 14-year-old dog earlier this year and I love them both. People say what’s the point in having a senior dog when they’re going to be gone in a couple of years or so, and I always say: to make their final years the best they ever had.
