If you are thinking about adding an animal to your family, why not give an older pet a second chance? After all, these guys are past the terrible twos, and could be just pawfect for you!
Our animal guests are here through no fault of their own, some just because their owners have moved home.
Choosing an older pet has many benefits:
- More likely to have basic training (many animals in our care are toilet trained and know their basic commands, eg. sit, stay, come)
- They are calmer, and some cases, less exercise is needed (great for someone a little time poor)
- The best part? Adopting an older animal will not only give them a new lease on life, but you too!
One other very important benefit of having animals in your life in general, is that studies have definitively shown that having an animal companion can increase your life expectancy.
So there are many benefits, both for the animal and you, so please come and visit our older guests! They have so much life and love to offer ... they just need you to share it with. Check out who is currently available for adoption, and please stop by for a visit!
