May is Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month at the Seattle Humane Society!‏

BELLEVUE, WA – The Seattle Humane Society is kicking off “Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month” with a special event on Saturday, May 3. Every senior cat that is adopted Saturday will receive a decorative collar to wear to his or her new home.� The cost for adopting senior dogs and cats, age 8 and over,� is $50 all month long.

“It is wonderful to be able to re-home a senior pet,” said Brenda Barnette, CEO of the Seattle Humane Society.� “Everyone benefits; the former caregiver is relieved that their trusted friend will be cared for when they can no longer provide the care, the new family gets a great new friend, and a fabulous pet gets a loving home.”

At some shelters, pets over the age of three are not considered “adoptable,” but at the Seattle Humane Society we know that older pets are often the best pets to have!� That’s why the Seattle Humane Society finds homes for every loving pet that comes through its doors, no matter their age.� Visit the Seattle Humane Society’s campus in Bellevue to meet fabulous senior pets who have so much love left to give.

Top 5 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Pet:

Senior pets have fully-formed personalities, so you know what you are getting!� Plus, senior pets have just the right level of playfulness for busy families.

Senior pets have already learned many of life’s lessons.�

Older pets seem to acclimate more quickly to new settings.

Many of our adopters say that senior pets really seem to appreciate it when they are adopted and bond to their new family more readily than younger pets.

With older pets, you don’t have to waste time teaching them all the basics – they already know them!� Instead, have fun teaching them new tricks!

Visit the Seattle Humane Society in person at 13212 SE Eastgate Way in Bellevue, or see the pets online at http://www.seattlehumane.org.� Adoption fees for all senior dogs and cats are just $50 and include microchipping, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 30 days of pet health insurance, and a certificate for an examination by a King County veterinarian.

The Seattle Humane Society was founded in 1897 to bring people and pets together.� The Seattle Humane Society does this today through its low-fee spay/neuter surgery program, pet workshops and training, pet food bank, humane teen club, visiting pets program and more. The Seattle Humane Society is located in Bellevue, at 13212 SE Eastgate Way.� For directions and more information, visit http://www.seattlehumane.org or call (425) 641-0080.
