In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue will be waiving the adoption fees for senior dogs and cats for the month of November.
Senior adoption fees will be sponsored by Kevin and Lisa Fox of Fox Dental Associates. The Foxes recently adopted a senior dog named Venus from Brother Wolf. Venus is one of many senior and special needs animals who came to Brother Wolf as a result of their recent merger with Friends for Life Forever Farm.
“Before arriving at Brother Wolf,” says Denise Bitz, Founder and President of Brother Wolf, “Venus had resided at Forever Friends for six years. She has gone through so much over the past few months, including losing an eye to a chronic condition. But it has not affected her amazing spirit! She has only been in her new home with Lisa and Kevin for a short amount of time, but she is already settling in and has become best friends with Rusty, a 13-year old sweetie who has accepted Venus with open paws.”
The Foxes are happy to help other senior animals like Venus find their forever homes. “Seniors have a really special place in our hearts because they just want to love and be loved,” Lisa says. “We enjoy knowing that we are helping every senior we bring into our family live out their golden years in the happiest and most loving way we can. We don’t dwell on how much time we will have with them, rather how much we can love them while they are here with us.”
At Brother Wolf, the term ‘senior’ applies to dogs 8 years of age and older and cats 10 years of age and older. They have dozens of special seniors in their care awaiting forever homes.
