Why Senior People and Senior Pets Are A Perfect Match

As part of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we are offering free adoptions to any senior citizens (65+) who adopt a senior pet.  Why this promotion?  Well, it's been shown that this is a mutually beneficial pairing - senior animals fit with the rhythm of a senior person's life, and it appear pets provide health benefits for older people.

Here's a link to a great article on on the benefits of seniors adopting seniors.

We have a variety of senior pets at the shelter looking for homes - dogs, cats and even a rabbit!*  If you are, or know of, an older person who might enjoy a new furry friend, we'll find the perfect fit.

*UPDATE: Flop, our senior bunny, was adopted this past weekend!
