About Our Rescue Group:I am working to place dogs that have been rescued from high kill shelters. I work mainly with small, senior and special need dogs.
I also rescue any others that can fit into available foster homes. Not necessarily old or special needs but need to be out of the high kill shelter.
They are old. They are special needs. They are wonderful pets. Before you decide to adopt please honestly answer these questions to make sure you are right for a senior or special pet. You are adopting them for their benefit not yours.
Do you know they may need to be taken care of and not necessarily thought of as a "pet"?
Can you accept they are set in their ways and to change those ways could be detrimental to their well being?
Do you have the desire to help those left behind when they got too old, too sick or were born with special needs?
Are you ready to take on the expense of caring for a senior or special animal?
Do you understand that most will not be totally house broken or can not make it all day without accidents?
Do you understand none of these animals should be crated except for their own safety?
Are you willing to love the animal unconditionally as they will love you?
Can you understand whatever time is left for them they deserve all you can give them?
Will you be able to accept them as they are forever?
PS: If you can not answer yes to all these questions please do not apply to adopt a senior or special animal. They will not fit into your idea of a "pet" and will only cause heartache for you and the animal.
