Choosing to foster or adopt a senior dog is truly a great gift. Senior dogs have a harder time coping with the daily stressors that can come with a shelter environment. As a result, their health can deteriorate quickly, making them even less likely to find a home and more likely to be euthanized. When you give a senior dog a home, you give the gift all dogs should have – living out their golden years with a person who loves and cares for them. This truly embodies the spirit of “thanks and giving” that we also celebrate in the month of November.
