November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month, and we at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa want you to know three awesome reasons why senior pets make such great additions to families.
1. Limited Training
In most cases, senior pets have already been housebroken and know basic commands. This means you get to spend less time training and more time bonding in other ways, such as snuggling and playing!
2. What You See Is What You Get
Senior pets have already reached their adult size and weight, so there’s no questioning if they will outgrow your home.
3. Hyperactive or Low-Key?
When you meet a puppy or kitten for the first time, their personality at that point in their life can vary greatly from the personality they’ll have as an adult. When you meet a senior pet, you have a better idea if they’re sweet and cuddly or fun-loving and energetic, giving you the information you need to make an educated decision on the right pet for your family.
Let's continue to spread the word about how wonderful older pets can be, we’re confident we can give each and every one the loving home they deserve!
