Earlier today, we featured some beautiful senior cats who are looking for their forever homes. But even if you can’t adopt right now, you can still help senior cats, and it’s as easy as telling someone about how wonderful they are.
In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, Petfinder has teamed up with Bissell and is asking everyone to pledge to tell one person about why senior pets are great. By pledging, you’re also automatically entered to win a Bissell Lift-Off® Deep Cleaning System for yourself and one for the Petfinder shelter or rescue group of your choice . Click here to pledge to help senior cats (and dogs, too).
Telling someone about the joys of adopting an older cat doesn’t take long. Here are some suggestions on how you can do it:
- Donate your Facebook status and share a senior cat who is looking for a home.
- Tweet about the pledge.
- Share my award winning post about The Joys of Adopting an Older Cat.
- Share my post featuring senior cats from around the country who are looking for a home.
By taking the pledge to help senior cats, everybody wins: the cats who might find homes as a result of you spreading the word, and you or a shelter of your choice if you win the Bissell contest.
