« Adopt-A-Senior-Dog-Day: Part II | Main | Alums and idea »

November 21, 2010



Gosh, Ellen, I was so hoping they all would find their special home. I don't know - maybe people just didn't know about it. For me, as a senior, I really do appreciate - and need - the financial help. As much as I love animals, the proper vet care can get astronomical and then what do you do? And, of course, a lot of people are hesitant to adopt an older animal for a variety of reasons. What a shame, cause the senior animals are so very wonderful. Our house is full - 2 dogs, 3 cats or I would so take one of these special doggies real fast.


I, too, hoped more seniors would find a forever home. I've always preferred older dogs, but when I went to SLSDP website in April and saw young, sweet Molly (English Shepherd), I knew she was MY Molly. She'd love having a companion dog, but I'm retired and just can't afford it. Beside vet care, food and, of course, treats and toys can cost an arm and a leg. Maybe some day ---

Angel is sleeping on the couch beside me as I type. She is already coming out of her shell and bounces around excitedly when someone comes in the door. She follows our other pugs around the yard - too cute. Perhaps the event didn't get as many animals adopted as you hoped, but it brought her to us. And for that, we are very grateful.
