Adopting a Senior Pet can be quite rewarding.  We often have pets that are over 7 years, which is  considered Senior for dogs and 8 years is considered Senior for cats.  We have found that these pets still have a lot of life in them and they are so appreciative to have a new home.  You will be so happy if you adopt a Senior, you don't have to put up with that puppy or kitten rambunctiousness!  Senior pets are secure with themselves and are happy just to be with you and be a part of your family. 

Maximum came into the shelter with his buddy Tutt.  They were owner relinquished due to the owner's ill health.  Maximum is 7 years old and house trained.  He will be a good indoor/outdoor companion.  This Terrier mix is a great size to hang out in the truck or lay about on the couch with you.  He has been neutered and vaccinated so he is ready to go to his new forever home.  You might even consider taking Tutt with you as well.  Not a requirement but wouldn't it be great if these two friends could stay together.

So, please check out our seniors and see if you might give one of them a chance at a good life with your family.  Their time is precious and they will love you for sharing that time with them.


From time to time we take in an animal that has "Special Needs" and we will post that animal here.  Always that pet becomes very "special" to us here at the shelter and we can assure you that pet will also become very "special" to you, if you decide to adopt.  We hope that when we post that pet on this page, you will consider giving that pet a chance.

Scooter is a very special needs kitten.   This 3.5  month old baby’s back legs won’t hold his weight. He can move them but they are bent the wrong way.  He is doing much better since he came to the shelter.  He gets to go home with one of our staff and loves to be cuddled and eats up all that special attention.  He loves it when other kittens are with him. When Scooter gets a bit older Alphin’s Veterinary Clinic will do some surgery to help his quality of life.  This guy is  is going to need a bit of financial help for that surgery.  Scooter isn’t available for adoption at this time but after the required surgery(s) he is going to need a special home.  Right now we need some financial support to care for this special guy. You can give via Paypal on the website or call and stop by the shelter to donate to help Scooter get the life he deserves.
