Thinking about getting a dog? Why not adopt an older  dog — say, over the age of five years?  Or even a senior dog — between five and ten?  We’d like to guide you toward successfully providing a new home and a new life for an older dog.  What’s in it for you?  Mainly, you’ll discover a lot about yourself — especially your capacity for compassion and for making the world a better place — and not only for the dog you adopt.  As Ghandi once said, you can tell a lot about a society by the way its animals are treated. Treat them with compassion and kindness, and you’ll enlarge your own heart and, through your example, expand the hearts and minds of those around you.  Learn more…..
