Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day, as celebrated in North America, is a time to gather with family and friends to give thanks for the many blessings enjoyed by these nations and their citizens.

PCF would like to thank our families who allow us to do what we love.   To all the volunteers who show up daily, weekly and monthly to care for the animals and to those who fill the many behind the scene roles to run an organization.  Thank you to all the generous people and businesses in our community who have made donations to our organization.  Thank  you  to the families who have opened their hearts and have given many of the animals in our care a new loving home they so deserve.  Happy Thanksgiving!

National Adopt a Senior Pet Month

Adopting a senior animal is an instant friend for life. Did you know that every year, millions of adoptable animals are killed? With an adult pet, what you see is what you get. Their personality is already developed, and you’ll be able to spot the characteristics you’re looking for. Shelters and rescue groups are able to assess the personality of each pet for adoption, and carefully help match you to the pet that best matches your lifestyle.

Check out our featured senior pets on the home page and help them find the home of their dreams!

When you open your heart and your home to an older animal who needs help, they really do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Pets who have been uprooted from their homes, or have had difficult beginnings are likely to bond completely and deeply with their new human caretakers who they view as heroes. Pets who find themselves in the shelter or at a rescue group because of a death or other tragedy in their former human family usually go through a mourning period. Once they are adopted, however, they usually want nothing more than to please their new hero—YOU! No matter what circumstances brought them to the shelter or rescue group, older pets for adoption are exceptionally affectionate and attentive pets and extremely loyal companions. But first you have to adopt one!
