Puppies are great, but they’re not the only dogs in need out there! November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month, founded by the ASPCA and Petfinder to bring attention to all of the great senior pets in need of a forever home to live out their golden years. Senior dogs in animal shelters and rescues can have a harder time finding a home than younger pets, despite often being just as affectionate and playful as younger dogs, and usually better behaved, too!

Three million adoptable dogs enter shelters across the United States each year, making overpopulation a serious issue. Although there are over 3,500 animal shelters in the United States, only around 2,000 classify as no-kill. Unfortunately, this means many lost, abandoned, rescued, or stray pets who find their way to a shelter are in danger of euthanasia to combat the staggering overpopulation.
These pets are patiently waiting to meet their new families and receive a second chance at life! Opening your home to a rescue dog comes with several benefits, some you may have never even considered.

You’ve crunched the numbers, got the blessing of your current dog (or reached a tentative agreement with your cat), found the perfect candidate at your local shelter, or decided on a reputable breeder, and now it’s official. You’re ready to introduce a new four-legged family member into your home.
Bringing a new dog into your home is a big deal! But, before you get too excited imagining the prospect of your new pup becoming best friends with the dog you already have at home or cuddling up and sharing naps with your cat, you’ll have to consider the best way to introduce them to your home and family.
