Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet
This is the time to think about adopting pets which have been in animal shelters for a long time.
September 17-23 is the week for adopting neglected animals. However, you can take them home at any time of year, and they will be very happy that you did.
Blind, deaf and old animals are also very loving companions.
(Remember that it is always best to get your pets from an animal shelter and not to buy them.)
neglected: receiving little or no attention.
companion: a friend, someone you spend time with.
