BlogPaws Celebrates Senior Pets
“According to AVMA’s U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook, pet ownership was up in 2012, especially among people who were divorced, widowed or separated. This group saw a 17.7 percent increase from 51.3 percent pet ownership in 2006 to 60.4 percent in 2011. Even more impressive, pet ownership among single men increased by 27.7 percent. Many pets are from shelters and many are not puppies or kittens, so the population of older pets is definitely on the increase.

Laguna Adoption Program County Animals Team Sacramento (LAPCATS)
LAPCATS is an all-volunteer run and staffed effort to place healthy, loving adult shelter cats into forever homes. We are supported by the Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation, TEAM (the local non-profit associated with the shelter), and PetSmart. LAPCATS brings homeless shelter cats to the public through Petfinder and the Adoption Center in the Elk Grove PetSmart.
LAPCATS, established in April 2005, has now placed over 1,500 homeless shelter cats! Our cats are chosen for good temperament and adoptability, so if you are looking for a great feline companion and a real lap cat, please stop by today!
LAPCATS is a 501(c) non-profit under TEAM, the non-profit organization affiliated with Sacramento County Animal Care. Donations to LAPCATS are tax-deductible.

“Rescue animals aren’t broken, they’ve simply experienced more life than other animals. If they were human we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity them. Do something. Help to rescue. Donate. Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.” ~Pedigree
