Senior Pets

10 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Pet

  • Loyalty Chances are good that by adopting a senior dog or cat, you have rescued a wonderful, loving animal from an untimely, unfortunate and unwarranted death. A senior pet can sense that he or she was saved and will be eternally loyal to his or her new “forever” family.
  • Ease Of Guardianship Senior pets are mellow, relaxed and ready for a new home. They are past the puppy chewing and destruction stage or the kitten climbing-of-curtains and dive-bombing you from above stage and usually come with basic training. Most senior pets are happiest sitting at your feet or curled up in their bed next to yours.
  • No Huge Lifestyle Change You don’t need to worry about puppy and kitten proofing your house and constant training. (“No! Drop it! Not yours!”) And older pets let you get a good night’s sleep!
  • Stress Reliever Life today can be very hectic. Studies have shown that animal guardianship can decrease blood pressure levels and reduce stress. Senior pets enjoy leisurely walks and gentle play, which will encourage you to exercise for even a few minutes on your busiest days.
  • WYSIWYG (“What you see is what you get.”) Senior pets are full grown and their personalities are completely developed. When you meet with your senior dog or cat, you will know what kind of wonderful, loving animal he or she is and will always be.
