Have You Considered Adopting a More Senior Pet?

“Adopt a Senior Pet Month” is an initiative that started with the ASPCA (American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to raise awareness of older pets needing homes.

At Dogs Trust Darlington we have over 80 dogs in our care at any one time of all ages, breeds, shapes & sizes. Older dogs sometimes find themselves in our care at a time when the comforts of a home are most appealing. Our kennels are warm, dry and cosy and along with walks and time with their canine carers everything a dog could need. However for our “golden oldies” nothing beats the comforts of being in a home.

Bella, Bruno, Diesel, Gizmo, Jess, Heidi & Milo, Peter, Sammy and Smudge are more mature dogs who although more senior in years are still very active and enjoying life. All would love to meet their “Special Someone” and be whisked away to their “Forever Homes.”

Natalie our Home from Home Advisor says “When older dogs come into the centre wherever possible we place them in foster homes whilst they wait to meet their “Special Someone”. There they can enjoy all the home comforts such as watching television, listening to the radio and lots of one on one cuddle time. They have so much love and affection to give and our foster carers welcome them with open arms.”

If you are ready to adopt a dog please consider an older dog, they have so much love to give and life to live, they are often still very active and enjoy their walks and other doggy past times.   For more details on any of our dogs please visit our website or contact the Rehoming Centre on 01325 333114.
