Adopt a Senior Pet Month
When: Saturday, November 01, 2014
Where: Humane Society and Tri-County Animal Shelter
All month long we are celebrating our senior animals. We always have great senior animals that need a loving home. As you can see, by our Senior Mascot Ray, he is enjoying his forever home. Ray was a former senior chained dog, he is now living a great dogs life. If we do not have that senior animal that you are looking for, we encourage you to visit Tri-County Animal Shelter. They too have many loving, healthy seniors available for adoption. During the month of November, the adoption fee for senior pets at Tri-COunty Animal Shelter are reduced to $45. "Senior" pets or "mature" as we prefer to call them, are animals that are five (5) years or older. But don't let the age fool you-mature pets have many years ahead of them to give and get love. They already have their manners, meaning they usually are housebroken, calmer and less destructive than their younger counterparts, and may already know some tricks that they can share with their new owners. You'll already know how big they will get and what they will look like, which you can't guarantee with a puppy or kitten. Sometimes people believe that adult animals must be at the shelter because they are "bad" animals, and in most cases this is not true. Pets are relinquished for many reasons including owners are moving, allergies, deployment, foreclosure, eviction, or the owners have died. These pets are just looking for someone to love and care for them. If you have room in your home and in your heart for a mature pet who's looking for a second chance, and you would like to take advantage of the reduced adoption fee, visit the Tri-County Animal Shelter during the month of November for your new best friend. The Tri-County Animal Shelter is located at 6707 Animal Shelter Road, Hughesville, MD. 20637. Adoption hours are M-F 12pm-5pm and Saturday 10am-3pm. The shelter is closed on Sunday and all Charles County Government holidays.
