Help promote...

(Umm, ok. Wally is an example. He doesn't really need advertising since he's the King of Self Promotion as it is. We're also not saying he's less adoptable. Really. We're just noting that he's not a spring chicken. Hmm, that kinda sounds bad too. We're really just saying that seniors rock and there are tons of rockin' Wallys out there. None of course would actually COMPARE to our Wally but could possibly be good alternates since he's not leaving his ma ape)

August 12th is "Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Day"!

"Big black dogs. FIV+ cats. Senior pets. Special-needs pets. To help these and other often-overlooked pets find homes, Petfinder has named August 12 "Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Day."

Help promote this great cause by posting on your blog and/or adding a widget!

How nice. Mom says her next dogs after me and Flash will be senior dogs. She is through with puppies. Oh but she is hoping to not have another dog for quite a few years. Wants to keep us around

Hmmm...we were hopin' maybe Wally was up for adoption. My Muzzer thinks he is almost as cute as me.


pee ess...Not this year, but if someone wants Teka, I could get muzzer to take another dog, I bet!

Ha! I was a senior dog when I was adopterated and now I am SUPER SENIOR! I also was recovering from an embedded chain, flea allergy, and an upper respiratory infection. I was a "lifer" at my rescue and then I found my ma ape. The best things come in unexpected packages! My ma ape is going to ask our SPCA to promote this. They have some FANTASTIC dogs who have been there a long time. She wants to bring home a pair of seniors there who are old and inseparable and therefore no one really wants them. :(

Peanut's mom is right--mature dogs DEFINITELY have their advantages. I never had puppy issues like Oscar Bean, Oh My God He's Bratty Teen

Hey Brats,
Wally is too cool. We have allowed lots of rejects to live here with us. Have y'all seen a photo of Shiloh? And how about Sophie; she was 132 pound and looked like a manatee when she came here. Homer J. was a lifer in some shelter before he went to AHGRR where we adopted him from. Abby came to us through AHGRR as a stunted ab pup. radar came to us from AHGRR and he is blind and has no tail. Seniors and special need dogs are GReat even if the general populus considers them less adoptable. Everyone wants a cute little puppy but it isn't long before they aren't puppies anymore. It is best for some of us to look after the less adoptable "rejects" and give them the furever homes that they deserve. Y'all are doing good stuff.

We tried to post a widget but all we can copy from there is
and it doesn't mean anything. Don't know what the problem is.

this is nice!
am going to post it up on our blog too, even though petfinder is not based here, but i think it's a 'international problem'.

how sweet! Senior dogs have great advantages - they are over the crazy teenage stage and are usually easier to potty train. :)

The crazy old bat (Peanut's Grammie) would love to start an old dogs home. The best she can do right now is sponsor the "lifers" at the Columbia Humane Society.

Old dogs are very sweet dogs. We just lost out little old Sprock.
