Love is Ageless

Save a life and make your own better by giving an older pet a home during national “Adopt a Senior Pet Month” this November.  There are many senior dogs and cats waiting

in shelters, hoping to be part of a family again. The Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) is one of those shelters. 

During the month of November, OAHS would like to encourage more people to consider adopting an older pet.  With a senior pet, what you see is what you get in size and personality.  The majority of older pets are already house trained, are over the chewing or scratching stages and while they can still be quite active they also have a more relaxed attitude about life in general.

Adopting a senior pet can enrich your life and theirs in many ways. Did you know just petting a cat or dog can lower your blood pressure? Daily playtimes with a pet is good exercise for both and can also provide good mental stimulation for the pet and owner.  Dogs and cats today are living longer, healthier lives. Your act of kindness could also help you live a longer, healthier and happier life with the companionship of an older pet.

The Grey Muzzle Organization, a national nonprofit that gives grants to animal welfare groups like OAHS wants to help save senior dogs. They envision a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid. Please help make that dream a reality by opening your heart and home to a senior dog.  

The Oshkosh Area Humane Society has several wonderful older dogs and cats ready to go home with you!  Senior dog adoption fees are reduced and senior cats have no adoption fee. Be their hero by giving a senior pet the chance to love and be loved again. In return, you’ll receive the unconditional love, companionship and devotion of a very grateful pet. Visit them at 1925 Shelter Ct, Oshkosh.
