    Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary and Petfinder.com are celebrating November as
    Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month

    Think of a pet that is already trained and doesn’t chew or scratch everything in sight–a pet who will love you unconditionally, that’s what you get when you adopt a senior pet. Some people worry that a senior pet comes with problems, but according to Jill Griffet of Grand Rapids, MI, “I have never made a better decision”. In most cases they’ve had a home and they want one again. She adopted an older dog named Charlie, and has never regretted it. Charlie, now known as Coalby, has shown to be one smart, motivated older boy. He is currently ranked number 7 Flat Coated Retriever in the country in agility and has earned 30 different titles in agility, obedience, rally obedience, and is also a registered therapy dog. (Ready more about Coalby on our adoption story forum)

    At animal shelters and rescue groups everywhere, there are loving, healthy older pets like Charlie, looking for that one special home to cherish them for the rest of their life, and they don’t ask for much: just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love.

    During Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, take the opportunity to get acquainted with the older pets available at Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary by visiting the Sanctuary online at or http://www.mackienzies.info.
