SANCTUARY FOR SENIOR DOGS
November 8, 2012

Two years ago there was a tiny, very old, very fragile chihuahua at the rural high-kill shelter where I volunteered to arrange rescue for their dogs. She was very sweet but in terrible shape, missing teeth, loaded with fleas, hair loss and it was clear she had other health problems as well. I was familiar with their work and so I contacted the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs. They had a foster available and agreed to take her. She was taken to a vet immediately, received the very best care possible, and then went to a loving "forever" foster home because she was too fragile to spay. Her last days could have been spent laying on a cold concrete floor in a dog pound without their help. I rescued hundreds of dogs during my years of going to this pound and some of them will stay in my heart forever. Evie was one of those dogs. I had followed their work before and continue to do so and have seen many beautiful loving dogs get second chances because of the work they do. Seniors are so deserving and generally very hard to find a rescue for, especially those who are very old or have serious health problems. Every dog that joins the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs has a safe, kind, loving place to live out however much time they have. Their contribution to the rescue community is immeasurable.
