Senior for Seniors - Westie Adoption Information
Please read all the info below and then, if you are ready, move on to our adoption application info, which is below.
Are you a senior looking for the special love and companionship that adopting a Westie can provide?
Pets can help seniors in numerous ways…they provide unconditional love, companionship, and a reason to get out and walk (even if it's just a short one). Studies have shown that the simple act of petting a dog or cat can reduce blood pressure and stress levels.
Senior pets are especially suited for senior people because they are generally calmer, more even-tempered, require less vigorous exercise, and often already have been trained in important issues like housebreaking and leash walking. Senior dogs are often great characters. Many of our own rescue volunteers have adopted a senior dog that they were fostering because they grew attached to them and found them endearing, entertaining, and full of life.
We would like to encourage senior citizens and retired people to consider adopting a senior dog.
That's why Westies in Need is introducing our Seniors for Seniors adoption program.
If you are a senior citizen, we hope that this new program will open your eyes and that you will open your heart to one of our wonderful senior Westies in Need.
