Bring home a golden oldie during Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

Age is only a number, especially when it comes to loving our pets. And there are always many sweet seniors in animal shelters or with rescue groups around the country — all of them needing homes. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is no exception. So in honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, these photos not only feature older dogs for adoption. They also highlight adoptable senior cats, and even a bunny, horse and pig.
