Love is Timeless Adoption Special: Waived Fees for Senior Pets in November!

Written by: Arizona Humane Society

Our Pets Believe Love is Timeless... Don't You?

All senior dogs and cats ages 6 years and older will have waived adoption fees for November’s Adopt a Senior Pet Month, thanks to the generosity of AHS President’s Club member Patricia Gaynor!

Senior pets make some of the best pets! The benefits of adopting a senior pet include:

  • Manners! Often times, they are less destructive than our puppy and kitten friends.
  • “What you see is what you get!" Their behavior and appearance are already established.
  • The potty training phase is a thing of the past.
  • You CAN teach an old dog new tricks – who knew?!
  • Senior pets often times have a known history.
  • Senior pets are built-in best friends.

Pets also offer so many emotional and physical health benefits (which can be of particular importance to senior citizens) which include decreases in blood pressure, cholesterol, and feelings of loneliness. Pets also have the ability to increase one's opportunities for outdoor activities, exercise, and socialization.

Adoptions are available at AHS' South Mountain Campus and PetSmart Scottsdale locations and appointments can be scheduled at
