November is National Adopt a Senior Dog Month! To celebrate our seniors here at Animal Services, we've reduced their adoption fee to $25 through November 30. This includes all dogs over 5 years of age.
Remember a "senior" dog has a lot left to live. Many dogs live to 10 - 15 years of age. Most older dogs who come to us, are here for a variety of reasons, usually having nothing to do with behavior or temperament. More often it's because their owners can't keep them for reasons including: allergies, death of a guardian, a new baby, loss of a job, a move, and various other lifestyle changes.
Have you heard of our Senior to Senior program? If you're over the age of 55 and you find a furry friend here over the age of 5, their adoption fee is completely waived.
Just think of all the benefits of adopting a SENIOR DOG vs. a PUPPY:
- Older dogs are calmer and less energetic than puppies
- They make instant companions
- Older dogs usually are potty trained and know basic commands
- AND SO MUCH MORE!
