    Consider a Senior Dog
      


Senior Dogs

We love seniors more than we can express. We see an abundance of life in the aged animal. They deserve a chance at a happy ending and therefore we do all that we can to save them from death on a cold table or floor. Incredibly upsetting are those dogs that think they have a family who loves them, yet they are discarded and abandoned at a shelter, in the sea of other animals, loud barking, hard floors, scary sights and sounds, and wondering why the family left them in such a place... and why haven't they returned?

What's important to remember is not the length of time you spend with your pet, but the quality of enjoyment that comes along with being a pet parent. The time spent with a senior dog is always a gift and a blessing, too, for they provide a love that cannot be minimized. The bond that a senior rescued animal forms with his or her parent is genuine and strong, and the animal's gratefulness is in abundance. They know that everything is going to be fine now, and they want you to know how thankful they are for giving them that second chance.


Adopt a Senior Dog

Senior dogs love to sleep and cuddle the day away. They enjoy a brisk daily walk, but the best part of the day is the nap. They love for you to join them.

Senior dogs have a tremendous amount of love to give. When you rescue a senior dog, you have a best friend for life.

Senior dogs reward your care with an unwavering devotion. Nothing matches the love of a senior dog for his rescuer.

Senior dogs have learned many of life's lessons. They know, for example, that shoes are for walking and bones are for chewing.

Senior dogs can learn new tricks and be valuable family and community members. They make excellent therapy dogs.

Senior dogs often fit into your household with ease. They find the softest, warmest spot in the house and claim it for their own, but they will share with you, too.

Senior dogs make excellent companions for everyone, especially senior people.

Senior dogs are often the first to be killed in area shelters. Passed over for cute and cuddly puppies, they often do not have a chance and must go to make space for more puppies.

Adopting a senior dog saves a life!

 

Why is this senior dog up for adoption?

Older dogs lose their homes for many different reasons....most of them having nothing to do with problems the dog has, but rather with those of the person or family surrendering the dog. Many folks think dogs who end up at shelters or in rescue are all genetically and behaviorally inferior. But, it is not uncommon for very expensive, well-bred, well-trained dogs to outlive their usefulness or novelty with folks who bought them on impulse and no longer want to take responsibility for them.

Other reasons older dogs become homeless: death of a guardian....not enough time for the dog...... change in work schedule..... new baby.....need to move to a place where dogs are not allowed.... kids going off to college.... allergies.... change in "lifestyle".... prospective spouse doesn't like dogs. (All these reasons are taken from real case histories.)
