'Senior' pets need love too, says Richmond Animal Protection Society

The golden years are often a time to relax and unwind, but for many pets, those years actually turn out to be a stressful because many are abandoned as they get old and have to live their last years in a shelter.

The Richmond Animal Protection Society is hoping to change that by helping these pets find a long term-home through its Save our Seniors campaign.
