November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month – a special month for all of us at Stella and Chewy’s as our Journey Home Fund aims to raise awareness about the awesomeness of older pet adoption year-round. In celebration, we are covering the cost of adoption fees for cats and dogs, ages 4+, adopted between November 1, 2019 and November 20, 2019, from any 501(c)3 shelter or rescue across the US (terms & conditions do apply). Learn more here. As part of our effort to support adult and senior rescues, we are taking the month of November to feature adoptable senior cats and dogs from our Journey Home Fund Partners that are looking for their forever homes.
Update on 11/18/19 – We’re so excited to share that we’ve worked together to help over 250 adult and senior pets find their forever homes this month. ❤️🐱🐶 We committed to reimbursing $25,000 in adoption fees and have gone above and beyond by covering over $60,000 in fees so far. Given this success, we are extending this program and will be accepting adoption fee reimbursement requests through Wednesday, November 20th, 2019 at 11:59PM CST. We thank you for your interest, and we will continue to raise awareness for adult and senior pet adoption all year round through our Journey Home Fund. We hope you’ll continue to be as inspired by senior pet adoption as we are!

Maude is a sweet older lady who just wants to spend the rest of her days being your forever couch warmer and snuggle buddy! She really just wants your attention and love. Maude would be living her best life if all she had to do from now on out was take naps, get belly rubs and eat all the snacks with you, being your fellow couch potato.

Juniper is an older poodle looking for a home to spend her golden years in. She is the perfect size (around 8 pounds) and does great with other dogs.

Juniper has limited vision and will do best in a well-lit environment. Even with limited vision, she quickly learned her way around the yard and house at her foster home and she will happily greet you when you call her name.

Canelo is 10 years young and when he first went to his foster home, he did not know the joy of snuggling on the couch. That all changed soon! He is now a paws up, binge TV watcher with his favorite person. His favorite thing to do (besides be with his human) is to be outside and go for walks. He would love a home where he could spend a lot of his time on his person’s lap being petted. He is a loyal and loving companion who doesn’t mind being carried like a baby once he knows you.

Maggie & Geanie
Maggie and Geanie are both easy-going dogs with simple needs. They have been together their whole lives and would love to find their forever home together! Maggie is the younger of the two, so she is a little bit more energetic. Maggie enjoys a good car ride and likes to stand up and put her nose out the window to take in all the smells. Maggie will occasionally pick up a toy to play with…but we mean occasionally. You’re more likely to see her lounging in the sun soaking up the heat.
