8 year old Honey had to endure a lot of change in her senior years. But now she can finally feel safety and love again. Honey got ADOPTED!!! ❀️🐾🌹 Honey was originally surrendered to the Newark shelter in New Jersey when her elderly owner her could no longer care for her. At the shelter, Honey was completely shut down and depressed. She lost the one person she knew! The staff and volunteers were worried about her wellbeing. Thankfully, Honey moved into foster care through @ShelterChic animal rescue. In foster care, she was able to finally get some rest and relaxation that living at the shelter prohibited and took a toll on Honey. While in foster care she was also able to attend several adoption events which really helped her personality shine! Honey has been with her forever mom for one month now and these two have found quite the rhythm together. They are a perfect pair!
Ellen wrote, "Honey has been with me for a month now, and we couldn't be happier! I definitely hit the jackpot with her. She's such a sweet, laid back, loving lady. She was anxious in the beginning - the first night she wouldn't fall asleep until her bed was directly next to mine - and she still follows me any time I leave a room. She got to come to work with me a couple times before students arrived, and she charmed everyone - even my colleagues who were scared of dogs! Honey continues to be amazingly tolerant and patient with children and she is becoming more and more social with other dogs. We spend our weekends hanging out in the park, the farmer's market, or having brunch with friends. I'm so grateful we found each other and can't wait for our future adventures! To follow along, find us at @anditsjustlikehoney!" ❀️ #seniordog #adopted #thegoodlife #timetoshine #adoptdontshop

Foster dog Andy is in the house!! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ€— After a lovely afternoon at the spa for Andy, our resident dogs Sara and Simey had some supervised "hellos" with him (well, let's be honest, Simon just observed "the newcomer" from the couch πŸ˜‹) and Andy has been happily exploring his new foster grounds. He is wearing a makeshift pee belt until he figures out he need not mark in his new surroundings. He is wrapped up with two size "XL" pee belts (lined with a baby diaper) until we appropriately outfit him... πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚ More 'Andy Adventures' to follow in SSD's Instagram stories! @pupstarzrescue 🐢 #seniordog #fosterdog #fosterdogAndy #teddybear #adoptdontshop

Adventures with Andy start now, stay tuned! @pupstarzrescue 😍 #seniordog #fosterdog #fosterdogAndy #petchauffeur

GREEN BAY, WI: 12 year old little Norman has big amounts of love and is simply deβ€’lish! πŸ˜‹ Norman spent most of his life living in a southern animal sanctuary facility. Many shelters in low-adoption rate areas resign themselves to the likelihood that their dogs will live there forever. But when the recent storms hit, it was the driving force to move Norman (along with many others) northbound. Now, Norman is in Wisconsin and hoping that he finally found his lucky break! This is his chance to actually live in a real home for the latter portion of his life...PLEASE SHARE! 🎰🀞🏽 @lucky7dogrescue wrote, "Norman spent most of his life at a sanctuary before being transferred to us and we would love to find him an amazing home for the remainder of his life.
Norman is a very friendly and affectionate boy. When he's not cozied up, being snuggled, or being held, you can find him hopping or trotting around the house. His foster says this is one of her favorite things about him and says its absolutely adorable to watch. He does need to be carried in and out of the house to go to the bathroom, because it is somewhat difficult for him to maneuver steps, so a house with little to no steps would be best for him. But if the right adopter is willing to carry him throughout these parts of their home, well Norman obviously won't be complaining about that. He is incredibly calm and easy.
We think Norman would do great in any family. He warms up to be people very quickly and so far has not met a stranger he doesn't like. And he gets along great with most animals. Norman has no teeth, but this doesn't slow him down at all and as a result a small piece of his tongue is sticking out often. We all find this incredibly adorable and think it adds to his charm.
He can be adopted out anywhere as long as people are able to come to #Wisconsin for the pick up. Norman has a lot of love to give and we want to help him find the best possible home where he can be happy, loved, and cuddled for the rest of his life." To adopt Norman, please email @lucky7dogrescue at adoptions@lucky7dogrescue.com to submit an application. ❀️ #seniordog #getlucky #adoptme #adoptdontshop

DOUGLAS, WY: Could you believe not even one person was interested in the adorable 9 year old "Class Clown" Roscoe?? This handsome boy has so much personalty and charm; people don't realize what they are missing! Two years ago Roscoe fell upon some bad luck when his former parents got divorced, and off to the shelter Roscoe was sent. We can't change his past, and dwelling on it now won't get Roscoe a home anyway. But what will get Roscoe "graduated" from shelter life is more exposure to lead him to his lucky adopter! So...please, PLEASE SHARE! 🐢🀑🎈 The shelter wrote, "Roscoe first came in the shelter 2015 from a marriage split. He then was adopted out to a family last June, but was brought back because they said he wasn't fond of their little dog. However, all Roscoe needs is patience and training. Roscoe can be dominant toward other dogs, but he gets along with them pretty well. It just depends on the other dog and the compatibility of each personality.

Roscoe has an amazing personality, is very cute and loves being loved on. He is a cool guy who loves to be around other people. He is full of love! Roscoe has started to like walks with one of the volunteers, but mostly he is a couch potato. And he also has the most adorable smile...because of his snaggle tooth!

It is the goal of Laramie Peak Humane Society to place animals in permanent, loving homes. All references must be checked prior to Roscoe leaving the Humane Society. And a home/yard check is required. Roscoe's adoption will include a trial period of seven days to make sure it is a good match." To adopt Roscoe, please email laramiepeakhumanesociety@gmail.com with any questions and to submit an application.
Laramie Peak Humane Society is located at 612 N 2nd St, Douglas, WY. ❀️ #seniordog #classclown #Wyoming #adoptme #prettyplease #adoptdontshop

He was laying his head on her butt when left home alone. We the humans come home...20 minutes later he is snarking at her because she was "too close" at 3 feet away. πŸ˜‰πŸ’ Simon has lived with so many dogs. Aside from one foster dog (tiny Wally who has long since been adopted!) he's been smaller than all of them. I give Simon a lot of credit. He has a very, very good life now and we are extremely aware of needs. But he also doesn't love change or new animals, or these days, new people too. However, he will always choose snuggling with another beating heart -- whether he actually "likes" them or not -- over being all alone. A kennel card bio at the shelter would deem him seemingly complicated or even behaviorally challenging to some people, but he's just a tiny guy who wants (and needs) safety is all. πŸ’#mylittleoldman

Had so much fun filming @newman_mcpatches with @shoottheplan today! Talk about living The Good Life...10 year old Newman has it made now! 😍 You'll have to wait to hear more of his adorably heartwarming story, but @newman_mcpatches was recently adopted from @animalhaven (originally from the Brooklyn @nycacc) and this handsome hippo could not have found himself more doting parents... πŸ€—β€οΈ #seniordog #hippopotamus #seniordogs #greatdogs #adoptionstory #happytail #love #minimovie #film #video #adoptdontshop

NEW YORK, NY: 10 year old Muggle has been looking for his forever home for several months now and we have no idea why nobody has scooped him up yet! He attended SSD's adoption event yesterday and had a great time. He throughly enjoyed the social hour...mostly, snatching up as many treats as us humans would give him. πŸ™Š Muggle does great with other dogs. In fact, he's currently being fostered with a small zoo! He will sometimes bark at other dogs when he's on the leash, but it's more him just acting awkward than anything. (And likely not having much leash walking activity in his life prior to being rescued.) Muggle has a goofy personality with a side of silly. 😜 And even though he's a senior boy he is by no means slowing down! We really want to find Muggle his forever home once and for all. Muggle is a great little guy and he needs a sidekick - YOU! He will bring you smiles and laughs for all the rest of his days. Least we not mention...tons of love too!! πŸ’πŸ˜ To adopt Muggle, please email @shelterchic rescue at info@shelterchic.org to submit an application. Adopter MUST meet Muggle in person in NYC, and if you have a resident dog(s) at home a meet and greet will be required. ❀️ #seniordog #adoptme #overlooked #newyork #nyc #adoptdontshop

LOS ANGELES, CA: This trio truly needs a home that will keep them together. This is Queen, Baby and Scooby's intake and shelter pics - please see immediate previous post for details. They need an incredibly special adopter who will take ALL THREE under their wing. We realize and understand this is no small commitment. But to the right person the choice to adopt them will be clearer than day... 🌞PLEASE (please!) repost, reshare, and tag your friends! To adopt Queen, Baby and Scooby (together only!), please email danimcollins@gmail.com asap! πŸ’œ #seniordogs #specialcase #hero #adoption #lookingforlove

LOS ANGELES, CA: So we know this is hard case. And that we are looking for a hero. But after Queen, Baby and Scooby's first post on SSD they received not even one inquiry. Blah! 😧 This trio is very bonded and the city shelter is trying hard to keep them together. The only interest they received so far at the shelter is one person who tried to adopt little Scooby on his own; but Scooby wants to stay with his big sisters. We absolutely understand taking in three dogs is no small commitment, but we also fully believe there is a home out there who is just the right match for these senior babie...and that special someone simply hasn't heard their story yet. PLEASE SHARE to continue to spread the word! πŸ™πŸ½πŸ€žπŸ½β€οΈπŸ€žπŸ½πŸ’œπŸ™πŸ½ A volunteer wrote, "Queen, Baby, and Scooby are a bonded trio of dogs who came from a loving home and it shows. Their owner recently passed away, and her daughter took over care of the pups. She was determined to keep the dogs together after her mom's passing. But then tough times got even more difficult for her. She lost her job, and then she lost her home. Our intervention program is trying to help, but the woman is not in position where she is capable of taking care of herself or Queen, Baby, and Scooby right now.
Queen, Baby and Scooby are calm, sweet, and affectionate. And all three are good with kids. Queen is actually Baby's mother! And Scooby is just as bonded to the girls, in fact he derives his confidence from them. Scooby is a tiny bit shy but totally willing to be snuggled and held and loved too.
We know three senior dogs can seem like a lot, but we feel that keeping them together will actually make an easy transition for them into any home. They'd do best in a house looking for cuddles! They only need a few short walks a day, cozy spots to lay, people to cuddle, and, each other!" To adopt all three seniors, please email East Valley Animal Shelter volunteer Dani at danimcollins@gmail.com to apply. (Adopter MUST be able to meet the trio in-person in #LosAngeles -- no transport!!) ❀️ #seniordogs #adopt #california

Thanks to all the adoptable senior doggies, their fosters, and the volunteers who participated in today's SSD adoption awareness event in Chelsea!! Educating new people on the need for senior dog adoption is one of our favorite things to do. πŸ€— And getting senior dogs in front of new people at their very own event - without adoptable puppies around! - is such a great way for them to have the spotlight all to themselves for a change. And to show people... "hey, we're actually pretty cool, too!" 😎 Thank you all! Adopt, don't shop! [In video is Webster of @socialteesnyc rescue!] πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ #seniordogs #adoptdontshop

Who is coming to meet adoptable Boomer and his adoptable friends tomorrow?! (And if you cannot adopt, come visit anyway and buy a t-shirt! 😬) 10 year old Boomer is a fun little senior guy who is looking for a forever home with other dogs in it. He loves to be around other canines and is very social. It would be best if any resident dogs are equally as social. πŸ’πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ
Boomer has such a loving personality. He loves to snuggle, he enjoys playing with toys, and is definitely a fatty who enjoys healthy snacks. He leads the way on his walks even though his vision is very limited. He does have separation anxiety, so he would do better in a home with another dog or with a human who can spend most of the day with him. Overall, he foster says he has been one of the easiest foster dogs she's had!
Boomer is up for adoption through @AnimalHaven shelter and will be hanging out at the senior dog adoption event tomorrow - Saturday, September 16th. Please come on by and meet Boomer and his friends! @downtoearthmkts πŸ‚πŸΆπŸ #seniors #seniordog #adoptionevent #events #nyc #farmersmarket #adopt #adoptdontshop

(near) CINCINNATI, OH: One of the most discouraging things to hear is when a senior dog gets inquiries after being featured on SSD...but then everyone goes silent. ☹️This is 10 year old handsome Harley's 2nd feature and he's hoping this time it leads to his forever person! Harley is currently living at the shelter and is feeling depressed there. Harley is used to having a home and a person of his own to hang out with, but sadly his former owner passed away. Harley needs love again. He needs out of the shelter! PLEASE SHARE!! πŸ’œπŸ’œ Animal Friends Humane Society wrote, "Harley is still available available for adoption. I sent applications to all the individuals who had emailed me about him before, but have not received any applications back. Harley's original owner moved out of town and left him with her mom. And he now lives here at Animal Friends Humane Society. Harley is 10 years old and such a special soul. And he isn't loving shelter life.
Harley will walk with you for miles. He so wants to please. He is a super sweet boy who will lay down and let you scratch his belly if you scratch his back first! Harley also likes to go visit seniors in the nursing home. He's just that kind of guy! He wants to please and so wants a home of his own. And if there's a pool in the back yard, Harley would love it. You could probably teach him to fetch your paper and slippers -- he's so smart!

Harley is fine with other dogs; and he previously lived with another dog. He did fine with former owner's handicapped son, but due to his resource guarding the shelter requires a home with no small children. He has never lived with cats, but he does fine around them. He's housebroken and was never destructive in the house. He's a dog who could walk in to a home and settle in easily.

Please share this sweet boy so that special someone will see him." To adopt Harley, please email Tara at BowserTR@butlercountyohio.org with further questions and to submit an application.

Animal Friends Humane Society is located at 1820 Princeton Road, Hamilton, OH.

Adoption hours are Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Sat & Sun from 11AM to 4:30PM, and Wed & Thurs from 1PM to 6PM. ❀️ #seniordog #ohio

🐢 CHELSEA, NYC: Wanna' meet 12 year old adoptable Blazer? Come visit with us in two days - Saturday, September 16th at the SSD adoption table! Blazer and his senior adoptable doggy friends will be hanging out from 11AM to 1PM at the @downtoearthmkts farmers market on the northest corner of West 23rd Street and 9th Avenue. πŸ‚πŸΆπŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŒΎπŸ Blazer is currently in foster care and he is a very well behaved houseguest. He weighs 70 pounds and is just a big ol' love bug! 🐞 His foster says that Blazer "is an affectionate guy, but not at all demanding. If you're standing still he might walk up and nose your hand or give your hand a lick. He loves standing next to you leaning into your thigh while you scratch or rub his head or neck. He's so easygoing! He's just very confident/at ease with himself. He also just seems love anybody and anything that pays attention to him. We have a cat in the household who's generally friendly, but was a bit leary at first. The cat hissed a bit and batted at him once. Blazer didn't even react, then later that night when the cat started cautiously approaching him he started wagging his tail.

Blazer doesn't seem to be formally trained or know any verbal commands, but he definitely picks up on things. The first day he kept going to the wrong of the side of the doors to leave the building, but after a day he picked up to head to the other side. He's also very guidable - just touch his collar and gently guide him and he will go along wherever you lead him. He loves a nice brisk walk. When outside he's curious and has a good deal of energy, but once he's back in the house completely content to lie on the floor (preferably with his head on your foot). He is an all around a great guy! Blazer is perfect for someone who loves/always wanted a big dog." To be pre-approved to adopt Blazer, please email pupstarzrescue@gmail.com to submit an application! @pupstarzrescue ❀️ #seniordog #adoptme #chelsea #manhattan #adoptdontshop #nyc #nycevents #events #newyork

LOS ANGELES, CA: We are really looking for a miracle here! Queen, Baby, and Scooby are a bonded trio and they are looking for a home together. Yes. ALL THREE TOGETHER. Queen and Baby are the big dogs, who are mother and daughter and 9 and 10 years old. And 9 year old Scooby is the little guy who is completely attached to "his girls." He feels more confident with them, too. Somebody wanted to adopt Scooby as a solo, but they are so bonded the shelter is trying their hardest to keep them together. We know there is somebody out there who will take these sweet, sweethearts in.

BIRMINGHAM, AL: 11 year old, laid back Zia has received no adoption inquiries yet. And we have no clue why! Zia is in a need of a forever home where she can be loved on for all the rest of her days. She very friendly with other animals and seeks out affection from humans. She has a permanent head tilt and an unsteady gait, but her rescue has given Zia lots of vet care and the only thing she's waiting for now is an adopter. Zia had a rough past and needs her final chapter of life to be her best chapter of life. PLEASE SHARE! πŸ’‹πŸŒ·πŸ’‹ @adoptagolden_bham wrote, "Zia is a really laid back girl and everyone who has met her has fallen in love. She came from the county shelter. She is 11 years old and 74lbs.

She also loves to be outside (if you go with her) and roll in the sunshine. Zia is such a delightful and sweet girl! She does great with other dogs and cats. Anyone would be lucky to have her in their family.

Zia received a complete neurological work up with MRI and spinal tap. Her neurological signs are from a past disorder. Her head tilt, unsteady gait will likely persist but there is no underlying disease. Her neurological disorder prevents her from making it up stairs. She’s tries but trips and can’t climb. And at 74 lbs, it's hard to lift her.
Zia is also 'very light' heartworm positive, the slow kill treatment is approved and she will start soon. She is also on Dasquin for arthritis. We don’t transport; adopters must come to Birmingham. And they must bring their dogs and family members who live in the home. We’ve had people drive from as far away as Denver, Connecticut, New York, and Miami, so they will come if they want the dog!"

**EDIT: ADOPTED!!** SALEM, MO: In a small town in rural Missouri 10 year old Rocky has been waiting at the local shelter for four years. Rocky is dog friendly and enjoys human companionship. The shelter gets most of their adopters from the nearest big city, #StLouis, but it's not enough. And sadly, that's how adoptable dogs like Rocky linger in shelters for years. He has been overlooked simply due to the abundance of dogs sitting in shelters. There is still time to change Rocky's fate, but he needs your help. PLEASE SHARE! πŸΎπŸ’œπŸΎ A shelter volunteer wrote, "Rocky has lived at the shelter FOUR YEARS!! Rocky is an older gentleman who is around 10 years old and weighs around around 55- 60 pounds. He has a very clam laid back personality.
Rocky is great with other dogs, adults, and older kids (little kids make him nervous). He is looking for a calm home to relax in and live out his golden years. I truly think he would do OK in just about any home as long as there are not cats (or small animals like hamsters, gerbils as he might also see them as prey). Last weekend at the adoption event, we had him out and he was laying down licking everyones faces. Rocky would be perfectly content to chill out, watch T.V., and go for leisurely strolls for the rest of his life. He deserves a calm home to retire in, with a soft bed where he can lounge. A home where Rocky can love and be loved." The shelter requires any interested adopter to fill out an application, but they are willing to work with location (within reasonable distance) so that Rocky can finally go to the dream home he's deserved all of these years.

8 year old Webster has been looking for his forever home for almost one year! He can be a little shy and typically does not do well at adoption events because of that, which means the other dogs get all the attention. But we are hoping Webster's forever person it out there somewhere and this weekend will bring him luck once and for all. πŸ€žπŸ½πŸŒŸπŸ™πŸ½ Webster only needs someone who can understand that there is nothing wrong with being a tad shy - it's just who some of us are!
Webster weighs only 12 lbs and is extremely sweet despite having had a rough past. He's great with other dogs, is very chill at home, and is generally very well behaved. He would do best in a medium active home, ideally with another dog. He loves spending time out of the city in nature and would probably do best in a home in the 'burbs. Interested in giving this boy the happily ever after he deserves? Submit an application to @socialteesnyc! And come meet him this Saturday, September 16th! (Details in photo.)

(near) KNOXVILLE, TN: Meet Thelma and Louise! These bonded besties have certainly not committed any crimes - but they are as thick as thieves! The kennels at their shelter are too small for the girls to share, so instead they are in separate kennels across from each other so they can see and talk to one another. Unfortunately, Thelma has become increasingly depressed living there. They need a comfy home where they can snuggle up and kiss each other all day long. PLEASE SHARE! 😘😘😘 The shelter wrote, "This bonded pair were found running the roads together and brought to our shelter as strays. The supposed owner then came to the shelter and said she had to scrape up the reclaim fee (which we reduced to almost nothing) and would be back for them. But she never returned.
Thelma is a 12 year old, 65lb shepherd mix who adores her friend Louise. Sweet Louise is a 9 year old, 72lb hound mix.

Our kennels are a bit small for them to room together, so we have them kenneled across from each other to enable them to 'communicate.' Both girls are very friendly with people and appear to be housetrained. They are calm, good on the leash, and don't react to the other shelter dogs, even the rowdy ones!
Thelma acts depressed in her kennel, but perks up considerably when she walks or plays with her friend Louise!! However, Thelma does seems to be getting more and more depressed in the shelter. These girls need a home. They are so calm and the requirements would be simple- a yard or place to go for walks, a loving owner, and the opportunity to live out their lives together. We will help with transport to an approved adopter." To adopt Thelma and Louise, please email Kristin at kristin.baksa@gmail.com with any questions. An adoption application is required.

NEW YORK, NY: Appropriately named, handsome Bloom is well on his way to becoming his full bloomin' self! Bloom did attend the SSD adoption event yesterday and he rocked it! Although, he did not find his forever home. But Bloom was happy he got to spend a few hours outside of the @nycacc shelter and it also gave a chance to observe just how wonderful Bloom is. Before we continue - please understand Bloom is back at the shelter. He really needs a good home or a great rescue group to notice him! PLEASE SHARE! 🌻
Bloom is quite social and yesterday at the event he wanted to make friends with all the dogs. Even the dogs who snarled in his face - they didn't concern Bloom. He was also notably tolerant in the busy environment, if anything, Bloom was a tad aloof when meeting new people because he was so interested in soaking up his new surroundings.
Bloom weighs in at a hefty 72 pounds, and you may thing he'll eat anything you give him - but that's not true! Bloom has a refined palette and appears to have a say in the foods he likes to eat. Haha! He arrived as a stray dog so we don't know his exact age. But our guess is that he is likely 7 years old. He is not yet neutered; and he does have a small growth on this penis that needs to be checked by a veterinarian. Something to consider before adopting or rescuing Bloom.
A shelter volunteer wrote, "Bloom is a happy and social boy, greeting everyone he sees with a wiggle and a wag, and a smile ready to welcome you home. And a home is just what our lovely pup needs. A lap of his own to climb into, a foot of a bed to crawl onto, and a partner for a day at the beach, a stroll through the park, maybe a tiptoe through the tulips. Bloom walks beautifully on leash, appears to be housebroken, and takes his treats gently from your hand. He has an effortlessly calm and gentle presence about him, and to sit with Bloom in the sun on a bench is to sit with a lifelong friend. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet but it could never be sweeter than Bloom." To adopt Bloom, please email adoption@nycacc.org to inquire. Please include animal ID# A1124513.

OMAHA, NE: Gracie and Bella are two of the greatest of dames - mature and majestic! Watch these girls romp through the yard and every move looks regal. You might be surprised to hear they are homeless, or should we say, castle-less? And even more surprising to hear is that this is their second feature on SSD! Alas, it is sadly true. Gracie and Bella are still looking for their leading-family. They are two of a kind and must stay together. Can you help? PLEASE SHARE! 🐾🐾 Big Dogs Huge Paws rescue wrote, "Gracie and Bella senior #GreatDane sisters who are bonded to each other. These sweet ladies found themselves in trouble when their owner became terminally ill, but their vet and the local shelter helped place them in rescue with us. Gracie is a 9 year old #FawnequinGreatDane with cropped ears. Bella is a 7 year old #HarlequinGreatDane with natural ears. Bella is 115lbs and Gracie is 122lbs (but Gracie is too skinny so we trying to get her to 135-140). Bella and Gracie spend their days cuddling on the couch together or following each other around the backyard chasing squirrels. While they are bonded to each other, they also become very bonded to their people as well. Bella is more of the relaxed, dignified lady of the pair. She is stunningly gorgeous with baby blues eyes that everyone compliments her on. Gracie is the spunky, silly girl! She is very energetic. She will jump around when she is excited, and she LOVES her toys. Gracie is a supermodel, her unique colors and super long legs always have people stopping to stare!
Gracie and Bella are both good with other dogs and kids. But they seem to like to chase small animals, so cats are not recommended. They are both house trained, leash trained, trustworthy with free roam in the house, and are very well behaved overall. Both girls' blood work shows that they are very healthy for their age.
Big Dogs Huge Paws operates in NE, WY, UT, CO, KS, MO, OK, TX and NM." To adopt Gracie and Bella together, please email Alicia@BigDogsHugePaws.com today! ❀️ #seniordogs #sisters #bigpaws #adoptdontshop

(near) COLORADO SPRINGS, CO: 14 year old darling Daisy became homeless after her former owner passed away and there was no one in the family who was in a stable position position to care for her. Daisy has no so called or assumed "issues" - she is overlooked simply due to age! ☹️ She is truly a wonderful companion. And as you can see in the photo, Daisy has a comfy make-shift bed, but nonetheless she lives in a concrete cell. She has people to tend to her needs, but she doesn't have a family. We hope we can help Daisy find her special humans who will adore her for all the rest of her years. PLEASE SHARE! 🀞🏽🀞🏽🀞🏽🀞🏽 @arkvalleyhumanesociety wrote, "Daisy has been with us for a few weeks and was surrendered due to her owner passing away and the family member not being able to care for her. Daisy has had no interest, probably because of her age. She is a 14 year old #RatTerrier mix.

Daisy is house trained, good with humans of all ages, cats and dogs. She was reported to have been vomiting every day in the home but has not done so one time since coming here. We suspect she might’ve been receiving low quality food and treats. She does have a fatty tumor on her stomach but we’ve had the vet check that out and the vet isn’t concerned. Other than that she doesn’t have any other health issues! She’s just a very sweet, quiet, gentle lady. When she’s coming back in from outside she walks straight into her kennel and it just about melts all of staff’s hearts because she’s just so sweet and obedient. She’s fairly low energy and is just looking for a relaxed home and family to call her own.

Her adoption fee is $75 and she’s spayed, microchipped and up to date with her vaccinations." Adopter MUST meet Daisy in person at her shelter. No transport.

To adopt Daisy, please email Caitlin at creese@ark-valley.org to submit an application.

@arkvalleyhumanesociety is located at 701 Gregg Drive, #BuenaVista, CO.

Adoption hours are 12 noon to 5:30PM daily. ❀️ #seniordog #adopt #pets #anime #colorado #adoptdontshop
