Senior animals have a hard time getting adopted at local animal shelters. Approximately 20 to 30 percent of the dogs and cats that come through the Ventura County Animal Regulation shelter in Camarillo are 5 years old or older.
The Camarillo shelter is offering an adoption discount fee for seniors age 55 and older who adopt a senior animal from the shelter. The regular $125 adoption price will be reduced to $75 and will still include spaying/neutering, licensing, microchip implant, rabies shot, a certificate for a free veterinarian exam at the vet of choice and six free dog obedience lessons for canines.
