Senior Superlatives: These Senior Pets are Ready for their Fur-ever Home

Did you know November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month? Right now, there are many senior dogs (and cats!) who are hoping for a second chance at life available at the Arizona Humane Society. By adopting a senior dog, what you see is what you get.

Older pets have just as much love to give and are usually housetrained and have some basic manners. Yet, they are often overlooked on our floors. The Arizona Humane Society partners with The Grey Muzzle Organization, a national nonprofit that gives grants to animal welfare groups to help save older dogs, and a group that envisions a world where every senior dog thrives and can live out their golden years the best way possible.

Here are some of our Senior class members who are ready to graduate from the halls of AHS and fill your home with love.

Adoptable Senior - Callen
Nine-year-old Callen is a people-pleasing adorable American Pit Bull Terrier mix. He’s a current member of AHS’ Senior Class, National Honor Society and is ready to graduate as the elected Valedictorian. Callen excelled at leash-walking and received an A+ in his Snack-Time for Good Boys and Potty Training 101 classes. He’s a medium-sized pup who loves attention and, most notably, is Captain of the Model U.N. If you’re interested in adopting Callen, you’re in luck; his adoption fees have been waived, and he comes with a bevy of freebies! Check out our adoption page for more information and set up an appointment.

Adoptable Senior - Pippin
Orange and white Domestic Shorthair Pippin, is a reserved fellow. At six, this kitty enjoys quiet, peaceful solitude so he can contemplate the philosophies of the greats, like Plato, Socretes, and Descartes. While he may be a member of the AHS’ Senior Class, his preferences lean more to the academic ideologies of a college sophomore who minors in Leisure Studies. Pippin heads up the Book Club and has never met a chess board that didn’t require a little rearranging – after all, the pieces look much better on the floor. If you’re looking for an independent study partner, Pippin’s your guy. You can get more information by reviewing his profile and setting up a meet and greet.

Adoptable Senior - Bodo
At nine years old, Bodo is one handsome-looking German Shepherd. As a member of AHS’ Senior Class, he can’t wait for graduation day! Bodo is a large-sized pup but is just as goofy and loveable as can be. Bodo was voted “Class Clown” by our volunteers, and as a member of the Track & Field team, he’s never been invited on a jog he didn’t want to go on. So, Bodo needs someone who can spend regular time with him to take him on lots of walks and adventures with plenty of exploring; a nice backyard would be a major plus, and he prefers life as an “only fur-child.” Visit our adoption page to learn more about Bodo today!

These are just of a few seniors waiting for their “person” at AHS right now. We have more than a handful of others. Please, check out all the adoptable senior pets looking for their fur-ever home on our site. We hope you will consider adopting a senior pet as the unconditional love, companionship, and devotion you give them will be returned ten-fold. Let’s give these sweet pets something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving by finding them their fur-ever family!
