November is "Adopt-A-Senior Pet" Month in San Tan Valley


This November, the spirit of giving extends beyond the Thanksgiving table and into the hearts of animal lovers, as the Pinal County Animal Care and Control (PCACC) celebrates "Adopt-A-Senior Pet" Month. In an effort to place elder pets into loving homes, PCACC is offering fee-waived adoptions for senior dogs throughout the entire month.

Senior pets often spend the longest time in shelters waiting for someone to notice them. They are frequently overlooked in favor of their younger counterparts, yet they offer an unmatched level of companionship and calmness. Adopting a senior dog means giving a second chance to a loyal friend who still has so much love to give.

To sweeten the deal and make the transition to a new home smoother for both the pet and the adopting family, PCACC ensures that each senior dog is sent to its new home with a free dog bed and chew toys. These comforts can make a significant difference in helping an older pet adjust to their new environment and feel secure and welcome in their twilight years.

The benefits of adopting a senior pet are many. Older pets are typically calmer and less demanding than puppies and young dogs, often already house-trained and well beyond the destructive chewing phase. They can be great fits for families with a more relaxed lifestyle as well as for individuals seeking a mature companion.

PCACC's initiative to waive adoption fees is not just an act of kindness but a call to action for the community to recognize the value and beauty of senior pets. It's a reminder that every pet, regardless of age, deserves a forever home where they can live out their golden years with dignity and love.

In addition to the fee-waived adoptions, PCACC will host several special events throughout the month to promote senior pet adoption. These events offer potential adopters the opportunity to meet and interact with senior dogs that are ready and waiting to find a family.

To view pets available for adoption, visit PCACC's facility. located at 1150 S Eleven Mile Corner Road, Casa Grande, AZ 85194. The staff at PCACC are eager to assist adopters in finding the perfect senior pet to complete their home.

Adopting a senior pet is a compassionate decision that can enrich the lives of both the pet and the owner. This November, consider opening your heart and home to a senior dog. It's an opportunity to make a profound difference in a pet's life and to gain an affectionate, devoted friend who will treasure every moment spent with you.

Join the celebration of "Adopt-A-Senior Pet" Month and let's help these wise, wonderful companions find their way from the shelter to the cozy corners of their new forever homes. Together, we can ensure that the golden years of these deserving dogs are their best years yet.
