Adopt an older pet

Posted

Save a life and make your own better by giving an older dog or cat a home during national "Adopt a Senior Pet Month" this November. Many senior dogs and cats are waiting in shelters right now, hoping to be part of a family again.

Puppies and kittens are cute, but older dogs and cats are adorable, usually more mellow and housetrained, too. With a senior pet, what you see is what you get in size and personality.

Dogs today are living longer, healthier lives. Your act of kindness could also help you live a longer, healthier life. Taking walks together is a great way to get more exercise and meet new friends. Just petting a dog or cat lowers blood pressure.

The Grey Muzzle Organization, a national nonprofit that gives grants to animal welfare groups to help save senior dogs, envisions a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid. Stray Hearts is a recipient of one of their grants.

Stray Hearts discounts the adoption fee for senior pets. Additionally, they have a "Seniors for Seniors" program in which senior people (from 65 years old and up) can adopt a senior pet for free.

You can be a hero by giving a senior pet the chance to love and be loved again. In return, you'll receive the unconditional love, companionship and devotion of a very grateful pet.
