To celebrate Adopt a Senior Pet Month, we asked the @DrAndyRoark Instagram followers to share why they believe in adopting senior pets. Here’s what they had to say:
1. “I love senior pets because they always get more adorable with their gray hairs. Like Richard Gere.” @redheadvettech
2. “Adopting a senior saves you from the puppy teething stage!” -@teeaeff
3. “Despite all their aches and pains, they are so happy to get up and go every single day!” – @taterpugz
4. “Because their love has gotten me through the most difficult times.” – @bric239
5. “(They) may become the best, most loving, most appreciative short term commitment of your life.” -@jedikittie
