Senior animals who have lost their owners grieve as much or more than others left behind. They can not verbalize their emotions and are at the mercy of .sometimes
True Friends of Montrose does not understand this.
For years I have provided a safe, loving place for senior dogs and cats who have lost their home through no fault of their own and have worked with other shelters, i.e. Lackawanna County Humane Society for one. I give them a place to spend their last days.
Director of True Friends has deemed me an unacceptable adoption home because I have made the decision that on my death the elderly animals in my home will be humanely put to sleep by a vet. While this might sound harsh, to put these animals through the stress and trauma of losing yet another home and ending up in a cage at the shelter is beyond cruel. Having the forethought to provide for my elderly pets makes me unfit to adopt a senior dog from True Friends. Shame on you, Director.
This ignorant little girl had a concern with something I said, NOT something written on my application. Director did not contact me to clarify it; she just talked behind my back. True Friends is (supposedly) overcrowded and the animals are suffering because Director Browning does not possess an ounce of empathy for the animals who have the bad luck to end up at True Friends.
