Would you adopt furry babies or senior companions?
Puppies, kittens, and the like all deserve to receive a great start to life. Instead of possibly being born into cruel situations, fur babies should be pulled into loving arms where they know only good food and shelter.
Too often mills and other places with dreadful conditions are discovered only after they've spent years abusing animals. The young from these institutions deserve homes in which they learn not fear, but just how important and necessary they are to the human race. As Petfinder says, “Puppies are enchanting little beings. They’re cute and funny and full of promise.” This sentiment applies to any newborn animal; make sure to raise 'em on up on belly rubs and extra treats.
Older animals need a little lovin’, too. Even though they’ve grown past their puppy or kitty years, older pets are equally deserving of a good adoptive family. Whether they’ve been through terrible trials and tribulations or just haven’t found the right fit yet, older animals should get their chance of being embraced by a biped household.
According to organization Young at Heart, many senior pets stranded in shelters typically don’t get the same chance at adoption that their younger counterparts do. Haven't they earned another chance at a nurturing home life, too?
Should you have some reservations in adopting a senior pet, keep in mind the words of W. Bruce Cameron:
“When we adopt a dog or any pet, we know it is going to end with us having to say goodbye, but we still do it. And we do it for a very good reason: They bring so much joy and optimism and happiness. They attack every moment of every day with that attitude.”
