November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month

Image may contain: dog, cat and text


I was at the shelter last, Fri, 10 to noon. That being my usual day & time to volunteer. Of the kitties that are currently available for adoption, we have one four year old & another that might be that age or a little older. Neither are seniors. As for the dogs, I don’t think we have any in that age range either.

Since cats can often live longer than dogs, especially if they’re indoor only, senior often starts for them at past 10. For many dogs, that age is their upper limit. So, being a senior for them is considered what the last 25% of their life is.

We have two senior kitties. Both 11. Though, the way they run around, chase & wrestle each other, you’d never know it. Do you have or have you had an older animal companion?


Odin (Pittie) in Need of a Forever Family in Anderson, CA

Poor Odin….

– 6 months in the shelter, and ZERO interest. For some reason black dogs are less often adopted at shelters. He sits in his kennel and watches other dogs walk by that found homes…

When will someone pick him?

He’s a good boy. He LOVES his tennis ball and butt scratches. He knows sit, lie down, shake and “give me a kiss”. He does best with dogs his own size.

Please consider saving Odin… please adopt him.

Minnie & Tiffany (Pittie Mix) in Need of Adoption or Foster in Sacramento, CA


This was posted by Jessica Hughes at the CA – Rescue, Foster & Adoption Network © Facebook group: 💔 We need some help bringing attention to these two bonded beautiful amazing friendly girls!! Need a forever home, or a rescue/foster home! Please share for Minnie and Tiffany! 🙏🐶

*Located in Sacramento Ca currently!
*Both girls are up to date on vaccines, and spayed.
*Healthy and friendly, dog/kid friendly girls!

*These two pals Minnie (white/fawn) 7yr old APBT mix, Tiffany (fawn) 9yr old APBT mix have been family to each other and spent their lives being loving loyal companions to each other and their owners who no longer want them, thru no fault of the girls. How heart breaking is that! They were also raised with a small breed chi as well. Both girls have been great with other dogs and kids, love people, but have never been around cats.

*Minnie is more high energy she loves going for walks and runs at the park, playing with her toys. She could use some more leash training. Tiffany is super mellow, enjoys walks, and is great on leash.

*Owners chi bit neighbor and they had to pay medical bills. These girls had nothing to do with it, no where around incident, done nothing wrong, but now owners say they all must go! Help!

* A rescuer has been trying desperately to find these girls a great family home together for weeks with no luck. Owners gave a month, and will take to the shelter, where because there is no space available and they are owner surrender, they have been told they will be put down. The rescuer is pleading with them to wait and give us more time to find a home for the girls. But time is of the essence, no guarantees. Minnie and Tiffany deserve a loving family to cherish them and want them. Please help us by spreading the word for these two girls to get the loving home they deserve! We would love to find them a home together, but separating them may be necessary if we can’t find a home for them together. They love each other and are such sweet girls, at this point in their life we would love for them to be able to stay together thru this. If you can help please contact:

Missy (Dane/Lab) in Need of Adoption in Sonoma Co, CA


This was posted by Victoria Garcia-Shipley at the ROHNERT PARK/COTATI/PETALUMA PETS GROUP Facebook group: Missy has been fostered and needs a FUREVER HOME! 💞Call/text 707-701-1313 for a meet & greet. She’s a 7-month Dane/Lab that would make a great family dog. She gets along with dogs, cats and kids. She loves her car rides, going to the park and beach. Missy is very trainable as she already knows her commands of sit, stand, lay down. She would do best with a family that can give her the time and companionship she deserves.
Do you have room in your home and heart.

Urgent–Zeus (Pittie) in Need of Rescue in Brooklyn, NY–Set to be Euthanized

This was posted by Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs on their Facebook page:

ZEUS – A1103610 – Brooklyn – Publicly Adoptable
TO BE DESTROYED 02/21/17: ****PUBLICLY ADOPTABLE**** A volunteer writes: I just finished spending the day with Zeus at a mobile adoption event, and I am absolutely in love with him. Zeus loves chew toys and scratches behind the ears, enjoys giving kisses to his favorite people, can sit for treats, and tries to play with just about every dog he sees. Although he had a lot of energy at the beginning of the day, after a little while of saying hi to people and dogs, Zeus was ready for a nap! One Petco shopper (where the adoption event was held) liked Zeus so much that she went inside and bought him a big bone, which he happily lay down to chew on. Although Zeus pulls a little bit on the leash, he does great walking on a harness and he’s so friendly with other dogs that he’s used as a “helper dog” at doggie playgroups at the care center. That means he’s the dog we introduce new dogs to when we want to see how they get along with other dogs. Someone is going to snap up Zeus soon– come and see him at the BACC today!


Zeus Is available for public adoption and can be reserved on line until 12 noon tomorrow by clicking the link below.

If you live in the tri-state area and would like to adopt But cannot get to the shelter in time click on the link below and fill out an app with rescue and a volunteer will contact you.
