Adopt-A-Senior Pet Month

HEAD: The Latest Fashion: Vintage Pets!

November is Adopt-A-Senior Pet Month—and there’s never been a better time to splurge on a classic cat or dog! Senior pets are often the hardest to adopt, when in fact they often make the best pets because they’re already housebroken, have good manners, and won’t chew everything at ground level.

Another advantage of elder pets? They tend to require less exercise if your family is more low-key or you’re on the couch-potato side of athletic. That’s not to say that an older dog isn’t able to keep up with a good daily walk; most canines and felines are considered seniors between seven and nine—but at that age, the majority still have quite a bit of get up and let’s GO!

You can find plenty of amazing, lively senior pets waiting for someone to love at our local shelters and rescues. For example, there’s [two examples from local shelters with links]. You can also easily search for your perfect senior companion anytime on Petfinder.

And don’t let the fear of increased veterinary expenses deter you from considering an older pet; most still have many healthy years left ahead of them. Our veterinarians also have extensive experience when it comes to caring for senior and geriatric animals. To schedule an appointment for your “new to you” pet, call us at 999-999-9999.
