– “November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month”

“Think of all the reasons why a senior pet is the perfect fit:
• He’s a lot calmer than a rambunctious puppy or kitten
• He may have had experience living with someone…and may adjust to children and other pets more readily.
• He’s likely housetrained, so you won’t be getting up in the middle of the night to take him out…or find puddles on your carpet when you get home.
• He probably knows basic obedience commands, so if you accidentally drop a glass, he’ll may know to “stay” and not cut himself.
• He’ll be less destructive. The days of chewing shoes and swallowing socks are far behind him.”
By Heather Loenser, DVM on WTVJ TV 6 (NBC) in Miami.

– Yelm Animal Alliance President Elizabeth Felix shared this with the Yelm Community Blog:
“Give an older dog a second chance and they will forever thank you. Raising a puppy if done correctly is a full time job that many do not have to time to do. With a senior dog they are more laid back and generally make great companions. if you are interested in fostering for Yelm Animal Alliance please contact me at efelix1130@yahoo.com.”

The Yelm Animal Alliance meets at the Rosemont Retirement Center in the private dining room on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm. Visitors are always welcome.
