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:
Older pets may be perfect for you if you’re looking for a companion that’s already potty-trained or doesn’t need the constant supervision that a puppy or kitten does.
Senior pets are perfect for senior citizens or anyone who lives in a calm, easy-going lifestyle.
Senior dogs are easier to train than puppies. Their calm demeanor helps them be more attentive to learning.
They’re grateful for your kindness. Older animals somehow know you gave them a home when no one else would.
The best thing about adopting a senior pet is knowing that you will always be a hero in their eyes!
If you’re feeling inspired to bring home an older pet in the New Orleans area, make an appointment to stop by and meet some very special senior pets like Roscoe and Marvin, who both are looking for loving families.
