November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month!

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month! Please consider opening your home and heart to an older pet in need.

Puppies and kittens are lovable, but older dogs and cats are just as adorable and come with some perks!

Many are already housetrained and don’t require the constant monitoring.
From the start you know important information about their personality types, temperament, and grooming requirements.

Grown up pets reside at shelters much longer, give them a loving retirement home!
We have many wonderful pets in their golden years just waiting for a family to call their own.
Be the difference to a senior pet in need and adopt today!
