THIS IS AN AWSOME CAUSE AND DESERVES ALOT OF SUPPORT. I DOn't UNDERSTAD HOW OR WHY SCUM BAGS TURN THEIR DOGS IN TO A SHELTER WHEN THEY GET OLDER, THAT's JUST WRONG AND PEOPLE WHO DO THAT SHOULD ROT IN HELL! I HOPE WHEN THEY GET OLD, SOMEONE DUMPS THEM OFF TO DIE A LONELY DEATH WITHOUT ANY FAMILY.....GRRRRRR THAT PISSES ME OFF.

Working with beagle rescue, I have come to love and appreciate the seniors. Their medical care is often expensive, and they are the least adoptable of all the dogs. The old guys and girls have a special place in my heart.

In memory of my Gracie. We rescued her from shelter. She was 15 y/o when we got her as a stray. Probably got list due to her extremely poor vision. Pound didn't want to put her down because she was old. They had her for 3 weeks and we adopted her for $5. Shots, microchip, dog bed and food. They just wanted her to have a good home for what time she had let. Gracie lived with us for 2.5 years and finally surcomed to heart failure. But what a wonderful 2 years she had with us.

because we're all God's creatures and none of us should have to be forced to suffer. maybe it's not necessary to put the animal down but it is necessary to love and care form until they're passing is over

Brcause, like all of us, our old furbabies deserve to end their lives warm, loved and not alone. I would rather take an older one than not. They, cats and dogs still love

I wish I could help them all, but I am happy to do what I can do... one or two foster dogs at a time! My heart goes out to the elderly pets who have been dumped in shelters after they outlived their usefulness. I have a sweet poodle girl that my husband and I rescued from Harris County Animal Control- a god-awful place with a 90+ % PTS rate. Fortunately we had help from a rescue group that paid to have her horrific mammary tumor removed and her teeth cleaned. She only has 6 teeth left,...

Fortunately we had help from a rescue group that paid to have her horrific mammary tumor removed and her teeth cleaned. She only has 6 teeth left, but boy, she loves to eat! Thankfully the tumor was benign. She's about 12 years old and has serious cataracts, but she is safe and warm with a full belly and lots of love! She will not die alone and unwanted. God willing, we'll have her for a few more years. Each day is a blessing... they give so much and expect so little in return.

We lost our sweet Torti last week. She was the stray cat that we tried to catch for one year. She would only eat under my car. I knew she wasn't feral, just scared. This darling kitty came to our front door and let Tom pick her up..she was having respiratory problems, so Tom rushed her to the Vet, The vet thought she had asthma. We kept her inside and gave her TLC and love. A few days later, her breathing became worse, so we took her back to the Vet and sadly was told she had lung cancer....

We brought her home again and she seemd to rally for a few days. She was a purr machine and was so happy. Unfortunatley, she took a turn and we knew. We returned back to the Vet and she crossed over, while in my arms, still purring. We miss her terribly. The two weeks she spent with us were amazing. I wish we had more time with her. I feel honored and prevlidged that she felt safe to come to us. Such a beautiful -special- wonderful cat.
