Wonderful, experienced pets age 10+ are waiting!

Guest Blogger: Siri Espy, Animal Friends' Communications Team

As we look forward to our golden years, is a comfortable, loving home too much to ask? At Animal Friends, that’s all our senior pets are asking for, as well.

At the moment, our kennels are home to a number of older animals looking for love. While puppies and kittens charm their way into our hearts with their antics, older animals tend to be more laid-back, and are often overlooked as a result. But their years of experience can make them ideal pets.

As with senior humans, many of these animals are still lively and fun-loving, looking to play, exercise, and then relax with a favorite human companion.

A visit to Animal Friends' web site ( will highlight five dogs age 10 and up:

Miss Tiny, a 10-year-old Beagle;

Jojo, a 12-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix;

Tina, a 12-year-old Akita;

Lacy, a 13-year-old Beagle mix;

and our most senior citizen, York, a 15-year-old Dachshund mix.

A total of eight cats are age 10 or older; calico Penelope and white Belle are the oldest at age 11.

Five 10-year-old feline residents are available, including brown tabby Helix, black cats Wagner and Coco

and beautiful orange Toby.

All our senior animals are asking for is a second chance in a home where they can bask in the sun – and the love of a home of their own. If you think you have the love to give, call or stop in to learn more about our sweet seniors. You will both be grateful you did.
