There are a lot of benefits to choosing an older pet:
- What you see is what you get – You don’t have to guess how big he’s going to get or what her personality will be like when she’s fully grown.
- Many senior pets have lived in homes – You don’t have to teach an old dog (or cat) new tricks. Often, they understand house rules and will fit into your home more easily. Older pets are typically already housetrained and well past the chewing phase, so no need to worry about your shoes or furniture.
- Older pets are often calmer – While most senior pets still enjoy exercise, they usually require less time-consuming, intensive walks and playtime. Many seniors are happy with short walks or romps in the yard, and the chance to be your cuddling companion.
- Nobody needs you more – Senior pets deserve to spend their golden years in the dignity of a home, and yet, so often they’re overlooked for adoption. In return for taking them home, they’ll give you all the love in their hearts.
