Ravenclaw has been at the shelter for about two months. He is good around children and other dogs, according to Kathy Robinson, a spokeswoman for the shelter.
Because of his age, Ravenclaw is considered a senior pet, Robinson said. That means he is eligible to be adopted through the shelter’s senior-to-senior program, which encourages older people to adopt older pets.
The program waives the adoption fee for anyone older than 60 who wants a pet that is older than 7, Robinson said.
“It’s a good program to have because we really want our seniors to go home,” Robinson said. “To me, seniors make the best pets anyway. I’ve got a house full of seniors.”
Dozens of animals are still available for adoption at the shelter located at 3241 Mr. Joe White Avenue. The shelter is open from noon until 6 p.m. seven days a week.
