November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month

November is National Adopt A Senior Pet Month — a month dedicated to helping older pets find loving forever homes. While small kittens and puppies may be adorable, older pets are just as loving and loyal as their younger counterparts. Not to mention, adopting a senior animal companion comes with some cool advantages:


Sadly, senior pets are often the last to be adopted from shelters. When you adopt a senior pet, you’re not only welcoming a lifetime of love into your home, you’re also saving a precious life. At the Louisiana SPCA, adopted a senior comes with a discount! Since animals age differently than humans, we consider a pet to be a senior once they age 6. To give them a better chance at finding a forever home, discount their fee to $90. Plus if you’re a senior yourself, we have an additional seniors adopting seniors discount.

If you’re feeling inspired to bring home an older pet in the New Orleans area, make an appointment to stop by to meet to meet some very special senior pets like Hershey and Greyson, who both are looking for loving families.
