Top Reasons to Adopt a Senior Pet

Top Reasons to Adopt a Senior Pet


There are thousands of senior pets available for adoption across the country, and the hard truth is that sometimes they end their lives in a cold cage instead of in the loving home of a human family because they get overlooked by potential adopters based solely on their age.


Many families visit shelters and rescue organizations in search of a dog or cat under the age of two because they feel like they want to have a pet with them for years and years to come – the one thing that many senior pets can’t promise. But young dogs are incredibly rambunctious and are still figuring out their personalities, which can be overwhelming to a family.


Here are the top reasons to adopt a senior pet:


Training – Older dogs have often had some training and obedience, meaning they usually have set potty habits and general manners.


Socialization – Older dogs and cats are more socialized than younger pets and easily adapt to new people and other pets. This is especially important if you are looking to add a dog to a home with cats – with an older dog you will know about their history with feline friends.


Appreciation – Seniors who have known a home full of love miss it when they are put into a cold sparse environment (like a shelter kennel). They appreciate love and attention when they receive it again.


Patience – Older cats and dogs are calmer than young, rambunctious ones and don’t need or expect your attention 24 hours a day. They feel comfortable just being near you and will allow you to finish your work.


Established – Maybe the best thing about older pets is that you know what you are getting yourself into. They are full grown and have developed their personality and behavior. Most of the time, they have already had any hereditary or congenital conditions they will have.


Senior dogs and cats are a great option for many families, especially singles, older families, and senior citizens. They have a lot of great qualities that make them great pets.
