ST. LOUIS — If you've been looking for a dog to complete your family, look no further.

The Humane Society of Missouri is running a promotion on all eligible adult dogs in their shelters.

Anyone who adopts an eligible adult dog from the Humane Society of Missouri from Monday to Sunday this week, will receive $50 off the dog's adoption fees.

HSMO said older dogs are often overlooked for the youngest pups in the shelter, but adult dogs are often a great fit, too, according to a news release.

The organization gave the reasons below to consider adopting an adult dog.

  • "Instant Knowledge: When adopting an adult dog, you'll know important things, like their full-grown size, personality and grooming requirements, right from the start. This can make it easier to pick the right dog. If you're not into surprises, adopting an adult dog might be right for you!
  • "Not as excitable: Older animals often have a more laid back personality from having been around the block a few times, so adopting another pet, having friends over to the house or dealing with small, playful children won’t be as shocking to them. They will usually greet their new friends with calm and ease.
  • "Less Mess: Being more mature, the destructive chewing and accidents in the house is something adult and senior pets have probably outgrown.
  • "Easy Breezy Walks: A nice walk here and there is great for your old friend, but don’t worry about having to run for miles. Older dogs will more easily tire, and they make great couch cuddlers when you head back inside.
  • "Better Listeners: Many adult pets have been around humans long enough to understand easy commands, often knowing what their owners are asking and quickly catching on to basic instructions in their new home."

The Humane Society provided photos of some of the available adult doggos up for adoption at the shelter. Give them a look, one of them may be waiting to become your new best friend. 

To see all the pets available for adoption with the Humane Society of Missouri, visit their website or go in person to the headquarters located at 1201 Macklind Avenue in St. Louis.
