November: Adopt A Senior Pet Month

November has been designated the month in which those that are seniors dogs should find a home. For some reason people tend to think that it is a waste of time to adopt a pup that has left behind the days in which he would play nonstop. It is a big mistake to pass them off just because a human may think that there is nothing new to a Senior dog. People tend to become oblivious to the fact that by adopting a Senior pup they are saving a life and helping them fill the void that their previous owner left in their life. Be it a cat or a dog, they do not know what have they have done wrong to end up in a pound feeling scared and lost.

I take the pledge that Jane, associate producer , at petfinder.com has proposed. I will let everyone know how great Senior Dogs can be and I will share with you her ten reasons to why adopt a Senior Pup:

10 Reasons Senior Pets Rule:

  1. When senior pets are adopted, they seem to understand that they’ve been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it.
  2. A senior pet’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
  1. You can teach an old dog (or cat or other pet) new tricks (I do every day with my own cats!): Senior pets have the attention span and impulse control that makes them easier to train than their youthful counterparts.
  2. A senior pet may very well already know basic commands anyway!
  3. In particular, senior pets are often already housetrained, or can be more easily housetrained than a young pet with a tiny bladder.
  4. A senior pet won’t grow any larger, so you’ll know exactly how much pet you’re getting.
  5. Senior pets are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger pets, who may get into mischief because they’re bored.
  6. Speaking of relaxing, senior pets make great napping buddies.
  7. Senior pets know that chew toys (not shoes) are for chewing and scratching posts (not furniture) are for scratching.
  8. Senior pets are some of the hardest to find homes for — so when you adopt a senior pet, you’re truly saving a life.
