Furry Fursday: Meet Sweets

September 29, 2016

Sweets is a one-and-a-half-year-old Cairn Terrier mix who was transferred to our shelter from Miami-Dade Animal Services. This adorable little girl is exactly what her name implies: she is sweet as apple pie! A simple smile at first sight of her and your heart begins to melt. She is just a great doggie to have by your side. She is loving  and gets along with humans and doggies alike and she will stay by your side through thick and thin. Hugs and kisses are a guarantee when you adopt Sweets, not to mention many many years of happiness!

September Senior Pet Special
This month, celebrate the love of senior pets in the best way – by adopting one! Throughout the month of September, adoption fees will be waived for all dogs and cats over six years of age (other fees may apply). Visit our website to see the senior pets available for adoption at www.humanesocietymiami.org and come by to meet the amazing dogs and cats looking for their human companions!

It is very common for people to look for a puppy when searching for a furry companion to adopt into the family. But older dogs can be just as cute and lovable as puppies, and they often come with many wonderful qualities that puppies take time to grow into. Older dogs are open books; from the start, you'll know important things like their full-grown size, personality and grooming requirements. All this information makes it easier to pick the right dog and make that instant love connection that will last a lifetime. Many older dogs are already trained, too, so adopting a senior pet will save you a lot of time and energy that you'd normally have to dedicate towards training a young dog. Senior pets are also a great addition for families who live a more calm and laid back lifestyle. So what are you waiting for? Unleash the love of a senior pet today!
