I’m not old, I’m vintage…..

The most heart-wrenching surrenders are those involving seniors.  You may have noticed that Animatch –as well as many other rescues – have numerous seniors up for adoption.  A lot of people think that if they drop their older dog off at a rescue, he or she will get adopted and have a great life with someone else.  They simply wash their hands of their senior without any guilt.  Eventually the dogs do get adopted and Animatch makes sure of that.  Although older dogs may be slower, their eyes may be clouded, and they could even sport a few extra lumps and bumps, they do not deserve to be discarded or “dumped”.  There are endless excuses for giving up a dog but with the exception of death, illness, and having to move into an assisted care facility, most of the reasons senior dogs are given up are lame.  People owe their dog a home for their lifetime.  If we value our companions, we value their aging process as they grow old alongside us. Dogs grow old much in the same way humans do; they face new challenges and accomplish new things just like we do.  Our senior dogs may not be as much “fun” and can’t provide the cute Facebook pictures of a puppy, but there is value to age and we should honor them.

 

Animatch would like nothing more than to tell you that people can be educated to think differently about surrendering an old dog to a rescue.  Until people stop viewing their dogs as possessions, no amount of education is going to change that perception. Instead, Animatch chooses to focus on the dogs and we wish to encourage our supporters to consider adopting an older dog.  We may not be able to change the mindset of people “dumping” their dog but we hope to change the one of people adopting.  You may have less time together but you’ll feel the rewards every day you spend together.  Please consider adopting a senior.

 

“Some call me a senior dog. That just means that I have years of experience in the fine art of friendship.”
