adopt a senior dog month

This November, adopt a senior dog from Salt Lake County Animal Services. Adoption fees, for all dogs over the age of 5, will be half off from November 1st - 30th. 

Have we mentioned some of the great reasons to adopt an older dog?

1. You CAN teach an older dog new tricks!

2. Older pets are usually less destructive than a puppy.

3. They appreciate the art of relaxation.

4. Adopted senior pets are grateful for your kindness, attention, and love.

5. You can adopt a purebred if that's what you're looking for. There are numerous breed specific rescues throughout Utah. Here at Animal Services, we see hundreds of purebred dogs on the adoption floor every year. 

Older dogs tend to end up in the shelter for numerous reasons that have nothing to do with their behavior such as: allergies, death of a guardian, a new baby, loss of a job, a move, or the novelty of owning a dog wears off.

Come meet our seniors Monday-Saturday, 10 AM - 6 PM at 511 W. 3900 S., Salt Lake City.
