It is the first day of November, which is also known as "Adopt a Senior Pet Month".

The month encourages people to adopt older pets from their local shelter.

Young-Williams Animal Center brought their alumni dog, Gabriel, to Autumn Care Assisted Living in Farragut on Tuesday.

The shelter says dogs, like Gabriel, can help older adults stay connected and meet new people.

It has just been so wonderful to have them and love on them," said Jean Darwin, a resident at Autumn Care Assisted Living.

Young -Williams Animal Center will host their "Furry Fall Festival" on Sunday at the Division Street location.
