November Is National Adopt A Senior Pet Month

Reasons To Adopt A Senior Dog or Cat

William - Available!
A senior pet can be one of the best friends you will ever have in your life. There are many reasons to adopt a senior pet. Here are just some of the reasons you might want to consider adding the love of a senior dog to your life!

Senior pets can make for some of the best snugglers! Most of the time they spends their days (and nights) curled up somewhere comfortable. Of course there is nothing more comfortable than mom or dad’s bed! Gentle and mellow, a senior dog is great to lie in bed with and watch movies or snuggle up on a cold night to keep warm. While a senior cat may still play with toys, they love to curl up to their pet parent and snuggle away the day!

The advantage to a senior dog is that in behavior, what you see is what you get. Rather than worry about behavior issues with a young dog, a senior dog shows pretty much who they are when you meet them. There are no surprises with a senior dog and when adopting you will already know what kind of temperament they have. There is also no guessing what size the dog will grow up to be as they are already full grown. Many times seniors are already house broken and have settled down from their puppy behaviors such as the infamous “chewing” phase.

Senior cats have already gotten their "crazy" days out of them, no longer seeking to climb up curtains they prefer to lay in the sun or cuddle up somewhere super soft. Rather than attacking your feet, they will seek you out for affection. There is no better way to de-stress from a long day than to have a personal fuzzy heater purring away in your lap!

Another advantage many senior dogs have over puppies is there is no getting up every couple of hours throughout the night to let the dog out. A senior dog loves their sleep and will sleep throughout the night without a problem. This means you get a better night’s sleep too. 

Most senior dogs are already house broken and don’t have to go as frequently as a puppy, they allow for more flexibility with your daily schedule as well.

Also don’t forget that picture perfect face! There is just something about a grey muzzle that screams adorable and senior pets are some of the most photogenic. Not to mention, a senior pet will be less distracted and more likely to stay put while you capture that perfect image.

All that said… Little Shelter has a lot of wonderful senior dogs and cats available for adoption! Throughout the month of November dogs 7 years and older will have a specially priced adoption fee of only $100. Come meet our available senior companions, we know you will fall in love with a new best friend!
