When you adopt a puppy or kitten from a shelter you will have a lot of work ahead of you! Young pets take a lot of time and patience to potty train and teach manners etc. Senior pets have often ended up in a shelter after already living in a home, so they’re usually already house trained- which is a huge plus!
When you adopt a senior pet, you’re saving a life. You are giving them a loving home to live out the rest of their years in happily.
Because they are aging they’ll need regular vet care, preventative care, and dental care to stay in good health. Check out our senior health tab for more information: https://v-dog.com/pages/senior-dog-health
Many senior adopters have said they would never go back to adopting a younger pet. Seniors are a wonderful addition to the family. Check out these heart warming senior adoptee stories: https://bornfreeshelter.org/6-senior-dog-adoption-stories/
