Rescue a Senior Pet!

Uncategorized

I adopted a senior pet from a woman in San Francisco who has an organization called Muttville. (www.muttville.org) Sherri Franklin rescues, find fosters and adopts out these older dogs that would otherwise be put down due to being old. Some dogs are healthy and some have lots of problems like the one I adopted. I adopted a (we are guessing 17 years old) male Papillon. He is blind, deaf, has minimal teeth, some internal disorders and walks pretty stiff and falls allot. So pretty much a train wreck! BUT….even after all that is wrong he is super happy! Loves to snuggle and cruise around the house and yes plays! He does a little Happy Dance. We just love him. He was abandoned and left to die. If it was not for Sherri’s organization, Dectective Tinkerton would have been put down. We have made him a Facebook page since everyone that works with Sherri just loved him and wants to know how he is doing. He has 85 Facebook friends so far!
Sherri has inspired me to put the word out to adopt a senior pet. I have already heard of a few people i know who did go out and adopt an older cat or dog! Sherri is a hard worker and so are her volunteer foster people. She lives in San Francisco and does this out of her home! A complete mad house full of dogs that you can tell are so thankful. I hope you can check out her website and learn more about her story! 🙂
