Brad's Beat: Adopt a Senior Pet Month
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- Some area seniors are needing your help, only these seniors are of the four legged variety. The Joplin Humane Society is hosting an Adopt a Senior Pet Month. For the month of November all senior dogs can be adopted for $15. The regular price of adoption is $85. There are more than 30 senior dogs in the shelter and workers say those animals don't require as much attention as a puppy.
"What you see is what you get. They're not going to get bigger. Not going to develop new habits. Getting what you get when you walk out the door," said Lysa Boston, Shelter Manager.
The senior dog promotion lasts until the end of the month.
