**NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL ADOPT A SENIOR PET MONTH**

SENIOR DOGS NEED HOMES TOO

WHY NOVEMBER IS THE RIGHT TIME TO GIVE A SENIOR DOG A CHANCE

Pet expert & founder of Stella & Chewy’s, along with senior dogs looking for forever homes

According to the ASPCA, approximately 32 million shelter animals are adopted each year with 1.6 million of those animals being dogs. An overwhelming amount of these dogs are puppies – as puppies are often the first to find homes, while sadly senior dogs continuously sit in shelters hoping for a second chance at life. Everyone loves a sweet and cuddly puppy, just like babies, but they can be a lot of work. Senior dogs are just as cute and loving and are forever grateful when rescued. Plus, senior dogs can provide peace of mind for a potential owner in terms of temperament, size, and an established diet.

Just in time for National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, pet expert Marie Moody is here to tell us all about the benefits of adopting a senior dog, why you should consider rescuing a senior dog in November, and what her company Stella and Chewy’s is doing with their Journey Home Fund program to help these animals in need. Spoiler alert: they’re covering senior dog adoption fees this month to encourage people to give them a home!
