Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Day -- August 12, 2009

On behalf of the many big black dogs, FIV+ cats, senior pets and special-needs pets, Petfinder has named August 12, 2009 “Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Day.”

Why ‘Less Adoptable’ Pets Rule
Here are just a few reasons we love “special” pets:

  • Older pets are mellower – you don’t have to worry about your lamp getting knocked over!
  • Physically challenged pets are often unaffected by their handicap – but you still look like a hero!
  • With “bad reputation” breeds, you get the chance to prove people wrong with your great dog!
  • Dark-furred pets make it easy to accessorize – black goes with everything!
  • Pets with behavioral issues allow you to form a tight bond as you overcome obstacles together!
  • Big dogs are easier to find when it’s time to go to the vet!
