Why you should consider adopting an older pet.
In the U.S., 86% of pets in animal welfare organizations are turned over due to “owner-specific reasons,” meaning the inability to care for the pet for the remainder of its life.
However, there are plenty of benefits to adopting an older dog that you may not know about!
Older pets are usually more obedient, house trained and calm. Not only are they are less likely to be destructive to your house, they don’t require as much activity as a puppy. Their personalities are already very apparent and you will automatically know if your personalities match up together to be a good fit.
