PAWS offers discount adoptions for Adopt a Senior Pet Month
November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month. In honor of this, Pflugerville Animal Welfare Service's senior pets are $20 through the end of the month. There are many benefits to adopting a senior pet, including:
- Senior pets tend to be calmer.
- Senior pets are usually already house-trained and know their basic commands (sit, stay, come). They are also usually past the chewing stage, so shoes, furniture and remotes are safe.
- You don't have to worry about senior pets getting any bigger, since they're already fully grown.
Senior pets are incredibly grateful to be welcomed into a new home. To see all the pets available for adoption at P.A.W.S., including Romo (pictured), visit pflugervilletx.gov/adoptme. Help make a senior pet's day, and make them smile as big as Romo, by adding them to your pfamily today.
