November is Adopt-A-Senior Pet month and here at the Humane Society of Ventura County we are celebrating the charms and perks of adopting a senior animal. At any one time, nearly one third of the animals available here at the shelter are considered seniors. Dawn, a ten year old Doberman and Vizsla mix is just one of the many animals who will find themselves at the shelter during their golden years. Dawn was brought to the HSVC last month after being rescued in the field by our Humane Officers. Officers were responding to a tip about an older dog who was in poor health and living in unsanitary conditions. Dawn's previous owners agreed with the Officers that she would do best in the hands of the Humane Society and she was signed over to the shelter in order to recuperate and find a loving forever home.
Dogs are extremely resilient and with the proper care Dawn quickly began to make improvements. She is recovering nicely from a case of Lick Granuloma, a skin order commonly found in dogs. If you visit the shelter you will find Dawn in good spirits, in fact you would hardly know Dawn is ten years old with her high energy level and up-beat personality. While we have limited information on her background, Dawn has a lovely character with plenty of affection to give. As with all animals rescued in the field Dawn’s adoption will be overseen by our Humane Officers to make sure she finds the perfect new home that can meet her needs. In honor of senior pets please consider making a small donation to help care for senior animals like Dawn until their forever families come along!
The Humane Society of Ventura County is a compassionate care shelter and non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and adoption of homeless animals throughout Ventura County. By donating to the HSVC, you'll be part of a community of people who are making a positive impact on the lives of animals in need in Ventura County.
Have a purrfect weekend and thanks for your support!
