November – National Adopt a Senior Pet Month

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month.

Many people walk into a shelter or scour a rescue’s website hoping to adopt a new puppy or kitten, completely overlooking the perfectly adoptable older dogs and cats in kennels and cages in their search.

There are plenty of benefits to selecting an older pet over a younger one. Because senior pets are typically calmer and less energetic than puppies and kittens, it is easier to teach them new tricks. In fact, many senior pets are already pros at performing basic commands. Their low-key natures can also make them ideal for households with children.

Consider opening your heart and home to an older pet.

Our store will be closing early on Wednesday, November 21st.  Please call that day for hours of operation.

We will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd for Thanksgiving.

Remember to keep your pooches and kitties safe, happy, and healthy during the festivities.  Be cautious of sharing the "family" meal , and especially --NO-- turkey bones for chewing.  Instead, buy them some safe, frozen raw turkey, or freeze-dried turkey treats, or American-made turkey jerky treats that we carry in store.  WoofMeow!
