These 16 lonely elderly pets in Washington animal shelters need your love
We’ve found adorable senior cats and dogs from all over Washington state living in animal shelters, looking for someone to give them a new home. Older cats and dogs are often overlooked. It seems like a lot of people want to scoop up all the adorable kittens and puppies first, but what about those older cats and dogs? They also need love!
Washington is a large state with many unwanted pets and many animal shelters. Hopefully, you have the space (and a big open heart) to adopt a pet from a Washington shelter. These pets really need your love!
I have a sweet little black cat that my child named Fluffy. He appeared almost 3 years ago as a kitten at the door of my terrace. Before Fluffy came along, I never considered adopting a dog or cat from a shelter. I want to adopt a dog (and another cat) but wouldn’t you know, our landlord doesn’t allow us to have more than one pet of that type. My daughter and I have gone to our local humane society a few times to walk some of the dogs that have been in the shelter for ages, and it broke our hearts to leave them there.
WHEN YOU ADOPTE A CAT…
NOTE: If you happen to adopt a cat this holiday season, make sure you put this cat backpack on your list to get it. I bought one for my daughter and she loves taking Fluffy to the mall, trick-or-treating, and out and about in it. Fluffy even seems to love it!
We’re sure you’ve heard that old saying that a human year is equal to 7 cat and dog years, so that means some of these pets are getting there in years. These sweet orphaned pets still need a warm and loving place to land this holiday season. Let’s see if we can’t get them adopted soon!
