Animal Care Clinic’s lodge manager, Julie Wilson, interview one of our great clients, Patti Holanda, about her experiences adopting “senior” pets from the local shelters. Patti tells us how they have enriched her and her husband’s lives and what a joy it is to bring some loving years to their lives for whatever years they have to share left. Senior pets are often the first to be euthanized at shelters as they become overpopulated. These pets can be wonderful as many already have a fair amount of training in them and are already potty-trained as opposed to puppies. If you adopt a senior pet from a local shelter, Animal Care Clinic is offering a free doctor exam and a discount on wellness lab work through the end of the December 2010.
