Best Friends Animal Society Hosts “Senior” Prom For Adoptable Senior Pets!

With one eye and four legs, Brian Griffin isn’t your typical Prom King, but then you’ve never seen a prom like the one Best Friends Animal Society in Los Angeles is hosting.

The “Senior” Prom will kick off Best Friends’ “Aged to Perfection” adoption promo, with no adoption fees on all pets seven years and older until the end of May. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

“We wanted to find a fun way to invite adopters to ask a senior pet for that ‘next dance’” said Dana Collins, communications manager, Best Friends Animal Society, Los Angeles. “Senior dogs and cats have a lot to offer. Most are mellow, have great manners, and make for awesome lifelong companions.”

Competitors for Prom King include the following 5 canines:

Brian, the eight-year-old Puggle, is stiff competition…
