5 REASONS TO ADOPT AN OLDER PET

  • Age can be an advantage

    Older animals tend to be more reliable, because their character is already fully developed.

  • Shorter walks & playtimes

    Older pets already have an established routine, and they are usually quieter and less demanding to look after. In older age, animals adapt well to the lifestyles and routines of their human companions.

  • Well-trained

    Older pets are house-trained and used to going for walks, they don’t scratch the furniture, and they generally know how to behave.

  • Seniors are for everyone

    Thanks to their quiet and stable nature, older animals often make good first-time pets. People with no experience of caring for animals can learn a lot from older pets. 

  • Doing a good thing

    Making the most of the time that remains. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you’re giving an older animal a happy retirement.
