Come to a shelter in the "Spirit of Rescue". Does it really matter if the puppy is 5 months of age or 7 weeks? How many times do we hear "I wanted a little one". What about the poor dog that may be 1 year of age. He is too often overlooked. Older puppies are easier to housetrain. The kittens face the scrutiny of what color they are. Long Haired kittens get adopted before short haired kittens. Orange, White, and Buff get adopted before Black and Tabby kittens. The adult cats find themselves in a lonely spot. Everyone wants a kitten. Rescuing isn't about size, color, age; it is about finding a new companion to share your love and home with.
