November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and the Humane Society of Genesee County has no shortage of sweet, wonderful senior animals that are looking for their retirement homes.

With that in mind, meet Charlie. He's a 7-year-old bundle of love, joy, and fur and anybody would be lucky to have him as part of their family. He's at the HSGC because his previous owner's other pet didn't care for him, so sweet Charlie is up for grabs!

He's fixed, microchipped, and has absolutely no bite history. If you want him to sit on your lap and snuggle, he will. If you want to play with him, he will. He's super easy-going and would love to come home with you!

Some facts about senior pets:

  • most cats and dogs are considered "seniors" by the age of 7; for bigger dogs, it can be 5 or 6-years-old
  • they are usually the last to be adopted from shelters
  • pet owners say that senior animals are usually easier to care for than puppies and kittens
  • senior animals are usually calmer, and YES! They CAN learn new tricks!

If you'd like to meet Charlie or any of the other senior animals at the HSGC, you need to make an appointment by calling 810-744-0511. If it's not Charlie you'd like to meet, please check out their website and know which animal you'd like to meet before you make an appointment.

Masks and meet-and-greets with other pets are required.
