Let’s talk about the old folks
What if I told you that there was a charity that had zero overhead, the people that run it make no money off of it, rather they spend a lot of their money towards it, and it had zero corporate sponsors. Would you believe me? I mean, how would that even work? Wouldn’t it go bankrupt?
So yah, it can.
Where do all the old, medically needy, no longer wanted dogs and cats go?
If you live in Pittsburgh or the surrounding area, the truth is, there aren’t a lot of options for them, and if they’re in need of a lot of medical intervention, they are usually let go.
For me, personally, some of the greatest dogs I’ve ever known have been senior dogs. When I was a teenager, we adopted a senior lab named Sasha. She lived with us for a while, until her diabetes made her too sick. But in that time, we still say, she was the best dog ever.
Or how about my Beau? We adopted him at 10, expecting him to maybe live for a year, and here we are, 2 1/2 years later, and he’s doing okay enough. 13 years old and still loving us very much.
Or what about my Lucy dog? Taken in at the age of 8, now 9, she’s still got so much life left for her.
I don’t expect everyone to want to adopt a senior dog or cat, but until they can be adopted, who pays for them?
The rescue that I’ve been backing for a few years now is near and dear to me. The people that run it are truly the definition of selfless.
Senior Pet and Animal Rescue gives dogs and cats a second chance, but right now, we really need you to help us.
Like I said, we have no corporate sponsors. We rely on the everyday person. We have these animals in our care, with expensive vet bills, and it doesn’t stop just because we run low on funds. They need us. We need you.
