November is National Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month
Valley Save-a-Pet joins animal shelters and rescue groups across the country to highlight November as Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month. Celebrating the joys a senior pet can bring to a family, this nationally recognized holiday spotlights healthy, loving senior pets that long for one special home where they will be cherished for the rest of their lives.
While many adopters are tempted by playful puppies and cuddly kittens, older pets also have much to offer. “An older pet is typically more low key,” says Melody McClurg, President of Valley Save-a-Pet, Inc. “Older pets adjust more easily to a new home environment, are mellow in family situations, and generally enjoy day-to-day routines.”
That’s not to say that senior pets are without a spark of mischief, or sense of adventure. As you settle in together, your pet will happily surprise you with its knack for knowing just what you need – whether it’s a cold nose, a soft purr, a special cuddle, or a silly antic.
Many senior pets are already well-trained, and if not, they are easier to train than puppies or kittens. Their personalities are well defined, making it easier for an adopter to find the perfect fit for his or her household. Above all, because many senior pets have had positive prior interactions with human companions, they will repay you with a deep sense of gratitude and unconditional love.
Each week in November, a senior pet available for adoption will be featured on our Valley Save-a-Pet website, www.valleysaveapet.org, and Facebook. You may also email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call The Purr-fect Place at (440) 232-9124. Thank you for helping the animals!
Bootsie is our featured Senior. She is 13 year old and she is very loveable and sweet. Her owner became very ill and could no longer care for her. Her owner felt really bad about the situation but because of her illness Bootsie needs to find another furr-ever home. Bootsie got her name because she looks like she is wearing a pair of boots. If the sun is shining through a window she will find it and lay there all day long. As a senior, she loves the warmth. Bootsie gets along with cats and dogs. If you would like more information on Bootsie or you would like to visit and/or adopt her, please call Chris from VSAP at 440-248-8088 or email her at email@example.com,

Buddy aka as “Ivan” was with Valley Save-A-Pet for some time. He was passed up so many times and we could not figure out why. Buddy is a sweet, loving, playful and an all around wonderful cat. Kathy saw him and fell in love with him. She adopted him and in a short time he and Grace were best friends. This picture tells the story. Ivan even watches TV. He loves to play with balls and will kick them back to you. Thank you, Kathy, for loving him and giving him the home he deserves. He is a happy lil guy living with two labs and another cat, who all get along great!
