Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoptions is the featured rescue on PetravelR’s™ Adopt a Friend in honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
Older animals make wonderful pets for so many reasons – maybe one of these dogs or cats would be just right for your family!
KIP * 10-year-old male beagle mix
Howdy, howdy, howdy! I’m Kip, a very sweet beagle mix boy who loves loves loves people! I am good with other dogs who respect space, and I do well with kitties. I really enjoy being outside and having a yard, and I may have spent some time outdoors in my previous life. I am house-trained but I need a firm schedule to help me stay accident-free. I love to run through the yard with the wind in my ears, and then a good toss and wrestle with my toys. I am quite the sweetheart and cannot wait to have a family of my own again!
LOUIE * 8-year-old male domestic shorthair
Hi there, I’m Louie, an incredible adorable and sweet little dude. I get along with other kitties and enjoy a good scratch under the chin, but most of all I enjoy being loved. I’d make a great companion as I am a very good listener when you come home after a long day, a great masseuse as I “make biscuits” with my paws on your tummy, and an incredible lap warmer while you watch your favorite show on a chilly fall night. More than anything I dream of a family of my own again, and I’d love to be a part of yours.
ELLIE * 10-year-old female lab/shepherd mix
Hi! I’m Ellie, a very sweet, very happy 10-year-old shepherd/lab mix. I am so happy to meet everyone, and I love other dogs. Not kitties though. I really don’t like kitties. I am a very lovely lady who enjoys spending time with people and being loved on. I would prefer a home where someone is home a lot, as it seems as that is what I was used to in my previous life. I really am a good girl, and I just adore my people. I’d love to find a nice, quiet home where someone can love me all day long. Are you the family that I’ve been dreaming of?
SASSY & SMOKEY * 12-year-old domestic shorthair and domestic longhair
Hi there! We are the dynamic duo, Sassy & Smokey! Actually, we’re more like the laid back, snuggle with you, watch birds out the window all day sort of duo, so if you like that speed better than dynamic, let’s talk! We are about 12 years old, and have lived our whole lives together. We’d like to live them out together, too! Sassy (black) got a nice shave down of her black coat to get rid of a matted mess of hair, and got a lot of rotten teeth pulled, too. I’m so sweet and I feel so much better! Smokey (grey) is sweet as can be. We love to snuggle together and keep each other company, but we’d love to keep you company, too! You will need to have room for both of us on your lap as we both love to snuggle with you on the couch! Sassy’s mouth hangs open a little bit – she had horrible dental disease when she came in and we suspect her jaw may have been fractured in the past. It does not effect her ability to groom herself, eat, drink or breath. Sassy will need someone to brush her on a regular basis.If you have it in your heart to give two senior kitties a forever home, please fill out an adoption application!
MERLIN * 12-year-old cattle dog mix
ADOPTIVE OR SANCTUARY HOME NEEDED: Merlin, a 12 year old Cattle dog mix, is the sweetest and gentlest of dogs. He is full of love, is perfectly house trained and does well with other dogs of all kinds. He enjoys nothing better than a comfy bed and is a champion snuggle bug. He came to us after being picked up as a stray by animal control and after a thorough examination by our vet, he was found to have a substantial heart murmur that required further evaluation. After seeing a cardiologist, it was determined that he has a heart condition that will require periodic monitoring and a daily medication. He is currently in a foster home and doing very well, but because of his heart condition he is considered a dog with special health needs. While his heart may not be the healthiest it is full of love and he would be a wonderful companion. If you would like to consider him for adoption or sanctuary, please contact Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PetravelR™ urges you to support your local shelters and rescues by adopting, volunteering, and donating. And remember that spaying and neutering helps reduce overpopulation and makes your pets better family member!
