SGC Admin: In our local paper, there is a section called “Kristen’s Kritters” which focuses on pets…Kristen writes about common issues with pets, offer’s advice and gets the word out about pets that need a good and loving home.. 

Senior Pets need loving homes too…. T-shirt print Ebay: Please Note this is not a photo of Roxy…

In the August 20 2014 edition, Kristen writes about senior pets… As she notes in her article most of us go gaga over kittens and puppies, really babies of any kind… It’s the natural way of nature I guess, and most of us, if we are going to adopt a pet we go for the young energetic ones… 

While this is fabulous news for the young who have been abandoned, it isn’t always so fabulous for the senior pets that for whatever reason find themselves in an animal shelter… 😦 Where they are usually the first ones to find themselves going through the pearly gates to doggie heaven…. 

Kristen points out there are positive reasons to adopt a senior pet, they are already house trained and because they are older they aren’t as easily distracted as the young, perhaps making it easier to train with your home rules.  🙂 

Roxy is looking for a new forever home… 

Presently a senior lady by the name of Roxy is awaiting a new, loving home.. She is about 13 years old, is spayed and a mix of Blue tick(?)/German short-haired pointer. Roxy has been at the Oshawa Animal Services since July 5 2014 and her time may be running out… if you would like to visit with Roxy or to find out more about her, please call 905-436-3311.
