Senior Dogs Make Great Nap Buddies: Shelter Pets Day

Senior pets rule! It may be the last day of November and the end of the Adopt-A-Senior-Pet campaign but we're going to celebrate its success with style. Grouchy Puppy style! What is that? It means we're going to remind you why senior pets can be the BEST choice for adoption. 

Let's start with Petfinder's 10 Reasons Senior Pets Rule.

Puppies drool. And I prove it!

Organizations like the Peninsula Humane Society offer free classes on caring for older pets

There are many wonderful blogs and organizations focused on senior pets such as:

Daley's Dog Years

St. Louis Senior Dog Project


There are both guide books and joyful celebrations of senior dogs:

Good Old Dog: Expert Advice for Keeping Your Aging Dog Happy, Healthy and Comfortable” by Nicolas Dodman

"Old Dogs: Are the Best Dogs" by Gene Weingarten (author) and Michael S. Williamson (Photographer)

Disclosure: We haven't read these books, only read about them and liked what we saw.  We hope that they motivate you and inspire you to see the possibility in what a senior pet brings to your family and home.

Happy Shelter Pets Day!
