November is Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month. 

Sadly, most dogs and cats past a certain age languish in shelters. But not only are they calm, cool, and collected-they are usually housebroken and litter trained, to boot. And yes, you can teach an old dog (or cat!) new tricks. Here are some tips on caring for your senior pet.

  1. Feeding your dog or cat a nutritious diet is critical to helping them fight the signs of aging. Choose a food with a high-grade protein, then add vet-approved supplements such as omega-6 and a probiotic to meals.
  2. Don’t slack on exercise just because your senior dog is slowing down. Even if your runs turn into walks, they are no less vital to the health of your dog, both physically and mentally.
  3. As your pets age, you should bump up their yearly check-ups to every six months. Many health problems-from arthritis to cancer-can be treated if caught early enough.
  4. Regular dental care is especially important: gingivitis can cause bacteria to spread through the bloodstream to vital organs!

Top Reasons to Adopt
Adopt, don’t shop

Great reasons to adopt and not buy a pet!

1. You’ll save two
By adopting from SCAR you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal that you’ve opened up a cage for. There’s very limited cage space at SCAR but we never euthanize healthy adoptables so if you’re not ready to adopt yet, don’t fret. lives!

2. You’ll know what you’re getting
We provide complete medical care and screen animals for specific temperaments and behaviors and match them specific adoptors to make sure each family finds the right pet for their lifestyle.

3. You’ll save money
The entire adoption fee at SCAR is less expensive than buying a pet. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, microchip and provide all other necessary veterinary care up until adoption. You will receive all available medical records when you adopt. This makes adoption a real bargain.

4. You’ll help raise awareness
Help us teach your family and neighbors about the high levels of euthanasia in shelters and how they can make a difference! Just tell them your story and what you learn from us.

5. A pet is good for your health
Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally, and physically beneficial. Dog walking, pet grooming, and even petting provide increased physical activity that can help strengthen the heart, improve circulation, and slow the loss of bone tissue. Caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment and lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation in all age groups.

6. You won’t be supporting puppy mills and pet stores
Puppy mills are “factory style” dog-breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Most dogs raised in puppy mills are housed in shockingly poor conditions with improper medical care, and the parents of the puppies are kept in cages to be bred over and over for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever joining a family. And after they’re no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discarded—either killed, abandoned or sold at auction.
