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