Petfinder marks Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week

Petfinder is promoting a very special effort this week (Sept. 19-25) – Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week.

My wife and I know how special it can be to give a pet a home, a pet that might have a perceived “flaw” that makes it less adoptable. We’ve often opted for a senior dog or one with an emotional issue.

It’s a two-way street because the gifts they’ve given us equal or exceed what we might have done for them.

Please consider adopting a senior dog or cat – or next the time you decide to adopt a pet, look for one who has been at the shelter longer. Maybe it has a physical disability or seems shy. They need homes too.

For more information, go the special section of the Petfinder website.
