Time to Put a Senior Pet in Your Life

Had a bad day? Think coming home to a pet who loves you unconditionally would help? You’re right; it will. Being loved by a doting four-pawed best buddy will pick you right up, maybe even lower your blood pressure.

But maybe you’re not up for a frisky kitten or a puppy that chews and isn’t trained, adorable as they may be. The thing to do? Adopt a senior pet!  A dog or cat who’s mellowed out, calmer, doesn’t ask much, whose personality you know, who doesn’t require constant monitoring, picks up quickly on household rules, knows how to get along with others…the list of benefits goes on.


Pets that are seven or older are still lively and vigorous, with years of life to come. And are they ever grateful to love and be loved.

“With an older pet, you know what you’re getting,” says Heather Hennessey, shelter manager at Francisvale. Older pets can be especially perfect for older people, since these furry companions are gentler and less interested in romping about. And they can also be comforting companions to children as they are unwavering in their devotion.

That’s why Francisvale and are celebrating November as Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month. If you want to adopt a senior pet this month, Francisvale can introduce you to wonderful dogs and exceptional cats like those featured here.
