It’s national Adopt a Senior Pet Month! And at the Nassau Humane Society, adoption fees are being sponsored for dogs 8 and older and cats 10 and older. Our adoption specialists will be happy to discuss with you the many advantages of owning a senior pet, and which of ours might be best for you.

Here’s what the national ASPCA says about senior pets:

While small kittens and puppies may be adorable, older pets are just as loving and loyal as their younger counterparts. Not to mention, adopting a senior animal companion comes with some cool advantages:

  • Grown-up pets don’t require the constant monitoring and training that puppies and kittens do.
  • Many are already housetrained.
  • Since senior pets are fully grown, you’ll be immediately aware of important information like personality type and grooming requirements, making it easier to choose the perfect pet for your family.
