Adopting Senior Dogs

Quick Links

Adopting a dog that no one else wants because of age is making an important statement about compassion. Many older dogs come into shelters because their owners have died or gone into Nursing Homes. Recently many older people are going to live in apartments because they are afraid to live alone in their own homes. Unfortunately, many apartment buildings do not allow pets and the beloved companions are given to rescue groups.

We would appeal to older animal lovers to consider adopting senior dogs. Bear in mind the following:
