November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month and These Animals Need Homes
November Is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month and there are many adorable animals right in our area, looking for their fur-ever homes.
It happens a lot, where older animals get overlooked at shelters, because people automatically assume they'll have health problems or won't be as playful as a new puppy or kitty. However, according to Petfinder.com, senior pets are extremely adaptable, and a lot of the time, they've already been trained and probably know basic commands too. By adopting a senior pet, it's a rewarding experience all around, plus you're saving that animal's life. Below are five older-aged animals that are waiting to come home to a new family. You can find them at the Larimer Humane Society, Humane Society of Weld County, and Bounce Animal Rescue in Fort Collins.
Jazzi Mae is a spayed Domestic longhair cat available at the Larimer Humane Society. The staff thinks she's around 14-years-old and she has been at the shelter since August 31.
Sweet Elvis is somewhat shy and still pretty scared of the shelter, which is why he really needs a new home! At a little over 10-years-old, Elvis does well with other dogs and loves humans, as long as they're gentle with him. This terrier/Jack Russell mix is available at the Humane Society of Weld County.
Miranda is a 10-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei/Retriever Labrador mix. She's a unique girl who needs a loving home. You can meet Miranda at the Humane Society of Weld County.
Snickers is a gorgeous spayed brown tiger Domestic shorthair. The staff at Larimer Humane Society thinks she's about 14-years-old, but she has a lot of love left to give.
Bella is not technically a senior dog quite yet, but at 8-years-old, she is one of the more mature dogs available at Bounce Animal Rescue. She is a mini Schnauzer /Maltese mix, rescued from a high-kill shelter. Bonus, Bella is already housebroken, kennel-trained, and does well with other dogs.
