It’s Senior Pet Adoption Month in Alameda

September is Senior Pet Adoption Month at the Alameda Animal Shelter. Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter is adopting out all animals 7 and older for free.

“What you see is what you get” with adult dogs and cats who have grown into their size and personality. Adult dogs don't require frequent potty breaks that are needed by puppies. Adult cats have less tendency to climb your curtains and rip-roar through their newfound territory.

Older dogs and cats also focus well and therefore learn quickly.

Many settle in easily because they have learned what it means to get along with others and become part of the pack. They are more likely to quickly adapt to their owners' schedules.

Lastly, older pets are grateful to have a home and family who will love them. Older animals adopted from FAAS have been health screened, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Most importantly, you are giving adult dogs and cats a home and a second chance for a wonderful life with you.

Please go visit all the homeless pets at the Alameda Animal Shelter, 1590 Fortmann Way in Alameda. The hours are Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit the shelter website at
