Older Pets Make Great Companions
Pets know the difference, they are experienced with people and people have experience with pets. Adopting a senior pet reminds us of how four legged friends need us and we need them. We have heard the saying "You can't teach an old dog new tricks", but you can. Time is on your side, they love to play and bond with humans.
Senior pets understand personalities, both human and other pets. They have been around a block or two. Health, energy levels, size, and environment are all important things to consider when adopting a senior pet. Most of all love, senior pets truly want someone who is nurturing, across the country there are pet shelters just waiting for a family to adopt a senior dog. Everyone ages, even our pets. Pets know when they have been rescued to a good home. I am so glad almost two years ago we rescued "Pepper" from the local shelter. Before she came to our home, she was placed with two other separate families. We have loved her through everything. Adopt A Senior Pet Month
