In February I had great good fortune of meeting a sweet 9 yesr old dog by the name of Rocky. I had gone to a rescue to see and adopt a 2 yesr old border collie but Rocky came into the room and into my heart.
Schultz Senior Dachshund Sanctuary in NJ here, where we specialize in SENIOR Dachshund rescue. Thank you for pledging to help a senior dog today!
I wanted to adopt a senior dog. Fred and his younger brother were surrendered due to divorce and ended up in rescue. They were bonded and I wanted them both to join our family of now 5 dachshunds. Fred is the oldest and love him like he has been with me all his life.
certamente! quando I miei 5 cani non ci saranno più prenderò un vecchietto e così I faremo compagnia.
The shelter at which we are going to volunteer had a senior doggie there on SAturday. She (he?) look sooo sad as if she had given up! I really wish we could have taken her but we already have a full house. We were there for the 1st time Sat. so really didn't get a chance to find out about her. Hopefully she will be adopted by the time we go back! I cried for her!
I have a dog she is 6 / 7 years and 2 Cats 3 Years and they is staying with me. No way they are going nowhere they are me and my husband’s Babies... Some Human Have no Heart or Feeling hope Karma get them good and heard. This is so sad.. People some du this to any Animal should be banned from have any Animal for Life. Bloody Asshold........ We had a Cat She was Born in or house and she died in ore house she was over 22 years. We still miss her and all the Doggy Cats Bonnie and small Birds may they all RIP♥♥♥♥♥.
I took the pledge....I already adopted a senior dog as my "first" dog (first dog since my childhood pet). Seniors are an absolute joy. They ask for so little but give everything. I also think they know they've been given one last chance and they're not about to screw it up. My neighbor adopted an 8 y/o Golden Retriever and was amazed at how easily the dog fit into their life. He said he would definitely do it again.
In ending this comment, I will put what I put on ALL of my outgoing...
In ending this comment, I will put what I put on ALL of my outgoing emails: "Adopting a senior dog isn't about the number of breaths they have yet to take, but the number of times they will take your breath away." (author unknown).
I have already adopted seniors. They are wonderful.
I just adopt a 16 years old dog and he give me joy and love every day <3 They have so much to give and they love you just as much as a puppy <3.
My sister has always adopted the older pup (one was 12 & lived 3 years after in the loving comfort of her home). We've also always adopted the older cat. Its true, their appreciation shines in their faces every day of their lives. (by the way Jacqueline, we too had a blind dog as well as blind cats. They did beautifully, animals seem to adapt quickly & you will too, thank you for your kindness!
