USA Senior Pet Month = November
With USA Senior Pet Month celebrated in November each year I want to show some sites with handsome, adorable senior cats and dogs available just for you, should you be looking. What could be better than a dog or cat already trained and ready to be your best friend? If you are older yourself, what a great complement for your lifestyle.
And not only is November our Senior Pet Month but later in the month, the 20th to be exact, is designated as our National Adoption Day. Adopt a new senior pet! What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving!
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
I have mentioned Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in previous posts, the no-kill sanctuary in Utah. Looking through their site at this writing, they show 53 very distinguished looking senior cats of all colors, both short hair and long hair, including a couple of Siamese and a Manx up for adoption. They range in age from 10 years to 20. A couple of their sweet kitty cats are shown below.
For senior dogs they show 75 guys and girls ranging in age from 7 years to 15. These handsome doggos are of many different breeds including Bull Dog, Catahoula, Border Collie, Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Chihuahua, Chow Chow, Labrador, Boxer, Shepherd, Hound, Cattle Dog, and more. A couple of their very cute canines are shown below.
Best Friends also has several other types of animals like bunnies and horses. Take a look at their site linked above.
Cat Adoption Team
Specifically for cats, the Cat Adopton Team is a local group to me located in Sherwood, Oregon. At the present they only show one senior up for adoption and she looks like quite a doll, Andi. They have quite a number of young cats and kittens. Here is Andi >>
Oregon Dog Rescue
Tualatin’s Oregon Dog Rescue has just one senior dog available at this writing. And her name is Annie, adorable, and 10 years old. As with the smaller rescue for cats, Cat Adoption Team, they appear to have a much larger number of younger doggies. See a special Annie here:
Oregon Humane Society
The Oregon Humane Society, like Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, rescues both cat and dogs plus smaller animals and farm animals. In our search for senior cats and dogs we only find one senior dog today, but a total cutie. They show 10 year old terrier/chihuahua mix, Lemmiwinks. See how cute he is for yourself>>
The Pixie Project
The Pixie Project of Portland, Oregon rescues both cats and dogs. They show one senior red kitty named Connor who has an adoption pending. They also have a number of courtesy photos for adoptions through individuals. Probably best to call this group direct for any more information on seniors.
The Pet Finder
Other than rescue groups known to you, The Pet Finder app gives you the option of finding the best information for your local area for pets.
If you should decide to adopt a senior pet, take a look at my post “Pet Adoption Questions” for some good reminders.
And do check out my past post “November is USA Senior Pet Month” for some USA-made product info to benefit your senior best pet friend.
One more post to consider for additional rescue resources is “Pet Events – Animal Welfare“.
