Consider adopting an older pet, like Nelly!

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Older animals need love too and the Dane County Humane Society is highlighting them with "Adopt a Senior Pet Month."

Marissa DeGroot brought Nelly into the WKOW studios this week to meet Wake Up Wisconsin viewers. She's a pit bull terrier mix who needs a loving, permanent home. 

Marissa says the humane society also has quite a few senior cats now and even a senior horse, all looking for new loving homes. A senior pet might not be the right fit for all families, but there are those special families out there who want to give a senior animal the love and attention they deserve, regardless of the future challenges they may face.
