November is Adopt-A-Senior Dog Month
Too often many believe that adopting a dog means adopting a puppy. Puppies are cute, and adorable and new, but Senior Dogs bring something very special to a family.
Here are a few benefits to adopting a senior dog:
Adopting a senior dog will save a dog’s life. Too often Shelters become overcrowded and unfortunately, older dogs are among the first to be euthanized. Thankfully Justice Rescue is a No Kill Shelter, who actively patrols our communities looking to stop animal cruelty and abuse. Justice Rescue does not euthanize for space, and at least a dozen of the current animals that were severely abused and are not adoptable, will enjoy lifetime sanctuary with the only team they trust, Justice Rescue. However, there are many who are ready to find their forever home, and their adoption makes room for another to be rescued.
Older dogs are not problem dogs. Senior dogs lose their homes for a variety of reasons, usually for reasons such as allergies, death of their owner, loss of a job, a move, change in work schedule, and various other lifestyle changes.
Older dogs usually come trained and understand commands. Older dogs are house broken and have mastered the basic commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “down.”
You can teach an old dog new trick, because they have a greater attention span. Making them easier to train.
Older dogs are calmer and less energetic than younger dogs. They have all their adult teeth, and have a lower energy level than a puppy, which makes them less destructive and often great with young children.
Older dogs make instant companions, and make great snuggle buddies. They are happy to be in a loving home again, and will reward you greatly with unconditional love.
If you are interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application to Justice Rescue at Justice-Rescue.com
About Justice Rescue:
Some might think an abused dog is hopelessly unable to overcome their abuse, but they are amazing creatures. While some dogs make go through unspeakable cruelty, dogs who have been abused, abandoned and seem broken in every way, can learn to trust again. A second chance is something everyone deserves. Since 2011, and at great personal expense, Justice Rescue has taken in and rehabilitated nearly 5,000 dogs to loving forever homes. Justice Rescue does not euthanize for space, and at least a dozen of the current animals that were severely abused and not adoptable, will enjoy lifetime sanctuary with Justice Rescue. Justice Rescue is one of the East Coast’s only nonprofit organizations that actively patrols our communities for animal abuse. If it wasn’t for the generosity of supporters like you, they wouldn’t exist.
Justice Rescue Dog of the week:
Bobo is a 3 year old neutered male pit bull mix. This big boy is one of the most stunning dogs you will ever meet. Once Bobo gets to know you, he is a lazy cuddle bug that just lays around and rolls over for belly rubs. He will play with his humans when he is outside, but prefers to walk around and sniff everything. Bobo is a very loyal and loving dog who gives the best kisses! He would be best as the only pet in the home and because of his size it would be best to have a home with no small children. Bobo knows his commands and he is both crate and house trained.
If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an application at www.justice-rescue.com. For more information, email email@example.com
