Pledge to Stand Up for Senior Pets!


November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month. I share my home with a cat who is 9 and another who’s 13, so seniors are close to my heart. But in a Petfinder survey, 30% of shelters and rescue groups said older pets are the hardest to find homes for. And with more than 14,700 senior pets currently listed on Petfinder, they deserve some extra attention.


Help senior pets like Clarence: Share them on Facebook or Twitter.

So make a commitment to help: Take our Stand Up for Senior Pets Pledge and promise to tell at least one person why seniors make great pets. (Find 10 reasons senior pets rule here.)

As a bonus, by pledging you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Lift-Off® Deep Cleaning System for yourself and one for the shelter or rescue group of your choice, both courtesy of our partner BISSELL.

So take the pledge now, and check back here all month for senior-pet Happy Tails, tips on adopting and caring for a senior pet, ways to help seniors find homes and more!

Tell us: Why does your senior pet rule?
