Adopt Me! Sherlock Takes Life at His Own Pace

In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we bring you a distinguished senior pet looking for a loving place to spend forever. Today, meet Sherlock, a 10-year-old Labrador/pointer mix currently residing at the San Francisco SPCA.

Sherlock would be so thankful to have a forever home before his 11th birthday on Jan. 8. A comfortable home to relax and spend his golden years, he definitely deserves these things and more.

"When he first came to our shelter in mid-October he was severely undernourished," says Krista Maloney, media relations specialist for the shelter, who says that the pup was given up by his previous owner. "Sherlock has truly thrived during the month he's spent at the San Francisco SPCA, and we're happy to report that he's gained weight and is ready for a second chance at a forever home!"

In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we bring you a distinguished senior pet looking for a loving place to spend forever. Meet Elliot, a 7-year-old border collie mix recently surrendered to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter in Billings, Montana.

Oct. 12 was a sad day for Elliot. She was given up to the shelter by her owners because she kept escaping the yard and they worried she would get hurt. True to her breed, Elliot clearly has a lot of energy and she's also very smart, so the shelter is looking for an active family with a secure yard to adopt her.
