5 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Dog

Updated: Nov 18, 2019

Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month?


There are countless reasons to consider adopting a senior pet. Here are 5:


1. You are saving their life with the commitment you made by rescuing them


2. If you don’t live an active lifestyle, an older dog might be the perfect fit for you


3. They instantly become a great companion


4. An older pet is usually trained and less demanding than that of their younger counterparts


5. They add joy to your life as you add to theirs!


On an even brighter note, Stella and Chewy’s is covering the cost of adoption fees for adult and senior cats and dogs that are 4 years old and older. They are offering this for the entire month of November from any shelter or rescue across the United States.

Both Stella and Chewy were adopted as senior dogs, which lead to their passion to create this wonderful foundation. You can find more out about their story here!
