Young at Heart

Why Adopt an Older Dog

They still have a lot of life to live and a lot of love to give.
  • What you see is what you get.

  • Old dogs can learn new tricks.

  • Your furniture and carpet with thank you.

  • When you sleep, they sleep.

  • They bond and settle in faster.

  • They may have been around the block, but they are still ready for new adventures.

  • They require less time and supervision.

  • They never stop expressing their gratitude.

  • Their life has value and beauty at any age.

Senior dogs spend nearly four times as long on pet adoption websites before finding homes. In overcrowded public shelters they may not have that kind of time.

 

When you open your home and your heart to an older pet, you are saving them from an almost certain death and showing them that they are worthy of love and comfort during their twilight years.
