Some beings just fill our lives without trying.

Pets who adore us with their love are one of them. They are the ones whose Fur-ever Love will make you want to hug, spoil and cherish them. I believe that love has 4 paws and whether it’s a cat or dog. When it comes to adopting pets, purchasing new ones is okay. But according to some recent trends, Rescued senior pets seem to be everyone’s favorite breed. Why? Because people think that when you adopt an older pet, you save a loving animal by making them a part of your family and open up shelter space for another animal that might desperately need it.

Animal shelters and rescue groups are overflowing with happy, healthy pets just waiting for someone to take them home. Most shelter pets end up there because of a human problem like a move or a divorce, not because the animals did anything wrong. People also prefer older pets because many are already house-trained and used to living with families. Let’s be honest, home is where the paw is and while we all want our pets to paws-per, no one wants to let go of their fur-kids. The online space is filled to brim with heartwarming stories of people adopting senior pets that bring us so much joy and bliss.

Here are 15 incidences where people adopted senior pets and brought our hearts genuine delight.

An older pet can bond with you just as deeply as a kitten or a puppy. When you rescue an older animal, it may feel like they instantly know that this awesome new person has come to their rescue. This changes their lives and makes them love you more. Another benefit of having senior pets is that with age comes not only wisdom but also a more relaxed state of being. For most pets, the older they are, the less exercise they need and the less energetic they are throughout the day which keeps the environment more relaxed and friendly.
