5 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Pet

It’s natural for us to gravitate towards the youngsters when choosing a new pet. But did you know that senior pets have a harder time finding caretakers, even when they have just as much to offer? 

That’s why November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, a month devoted to adopting, caring and loving senior pets. Petfinder.com and ASPCA founded the cause as a way to combat the negative perception around senior pets being “poor quality” animals. 

Reasons to adopt a senior pet: 

  1. They are often already trained. No wee wee pads required! 
  2. They are usually less excitable. This can be a good thing if you live a calmer lifestyle. 
  3. You’ll save a life. Most shelter animals end up getting put to sleep if they don’t find a home.
  4. They are grateful and less demanding. 
  5. They give constant companionship, showering you with appreciation and love!  

Interested in adopting a senior pet? Take a look on Petfinder.com to find your next furry companion and pledge to help senior pets find a well-deserved home.
