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.

Interview with Maria Goodavage, Author of Secret Service Dogs: The Heroes Who Protect the President of the United States
