Gimme Shelter: In praise of older pets – watch the video -Bullet News Niagara

he Niagara Falls Humane Society tries to alleviate the suffering of all animals and to eliminate euthanasia as a method of population control for pets. At the NFHS, no healthy adoptable animal will ever be euthanized.

When it comes to adding a new member to the family, a lot of people tend to want to adopt a kitten or puppy. Sure they’re cute and playful little balls of fur, but they are also a lot of work. The NFHS has many older cats and dogs available for adoption that would make perfect additions to any household. Not everyone has the energy or patience to handle that accompanies looking after a younger animal.

There are many benefits that come with adopting a more mature animal. You don’t have to worry about housebreaking them or having them tear up your furniture, your curtains, or your clothing. Older pets are much calmer and set in their ways. Even though they may no longer be a puppy or a kitten anymore, it doesn’t mean that they are not just as playful and fun to have around the house. They still love to play with their toys, chase after tennis balls, and go for walks.
