It is recognized that seniors benefit greatly from owning a pet.
I am a senior, healthy and active. I was raised on a farm, have had a family and had pets all my life. I had a profession, I drive, walk daily and own a townhouse with a fenced patio area.
I applied to a local agency to adopt a small rescue dog. I had a home visit. My home was inspected and I was refused a dog. I was told, and I quote: “the situation was not in the best interests of the dog.”
Also, I am curious. Why are so many dogs imported from Mexico and the United States? Where are Canada’s rescue dogs, large and small?
