Blogpaws has announced that August is Senior Pet Celebration Month.
We think that's a wonderful idea!
We can't tell you how many worthy cats cross the threshold of our shelter that are considered "senior" simply because they're over a certain age. We certainly don't consider them to be less adoptable - yet all too often that's exactly how potential adopters view them.
Take a look at the stats in this infographic and pass it along to anyone you know who is considering adopting a pet. Take special note of the statistic about the percentage of a pet's life span considered to be "geriatric."
We hope this is eye-opening for many!
Many thanks to BlogPaws for this infographic.
