People that turn older animals in to a shelter based solely on age seem selfish and ignorant. These dogs deserve to live the rest of their lives in the comfort of a loving home and with dignity. On a recent visit to the Humane Society I was told most of the senior dogs have been there over four years!
A shelter is no place to put a good long term friend! Next time you are in a situation to adopt or foster think about giving an older dog a new lease on life. Also, Petfinder.com even has a search category for age labeled Senior.
Here are just a few of the many Special Seniors needing homes:
|Jonah at GRRAND Louisville, KY|
|Ms B at Derby City Dog Rescue Louisville, KY|
|Sparky at Daviess County Animal Control Owensboro, KY|
