Companah works with families and service providers at the end of a companion’s life, and we do everything we can to make that time easier and as graceful as it can be. However, we also want to be a part of the story of a family bringing a new companion into their household. Specifically, we want to help promote the adoption of adult and rescue pets.
When considering the adoption of a pet, the majority of people first (and sometimes only) consider young dogs and cats. Of course, there is nothing wrong with adopting a puppy or kitten – but, we would like to draw attention to older and senior pets that are at risk of never finding a new home.
There are many reasons to consider giving an adult pet a second chance at a life:
- Many older animals were once owned and loved by someone. For whatever reason, they were given up and abandoned in a shelter and are in need of a home. Just like puppies and kittens, they make loyal and loving companions.
- Older cats are usually liter box trained and dogs are typically house trained and understand at least basic commands
- Senior pets may be less energetic and can be great for first time owners.
