We rescued Rosie from the Apache Junction Animal Shelter. She had been there for weeks with everyone passing her by. We think she is about 7 years young - not an old girl - but definately has had some hip and back knee problems for a long time. She currently have her on some pain meds for her pain, which already has helped her. We have found that the cheaper pain meds, Dasaquin, Tramado, do the trick for her. She is a very gentle soul but does not like it when our little ones walk into her or get too close to her face - they can't help it - some of our little ones are blind. She is getting comfortable and is loving the warm house, big orthopedic beds as opposed to a cold concrete floor. She needs someone to call her own! She now knows the doggy door so that is another plus. We don't know how she is with children but I would recommend no small children for her.
Rescue Group Info...
Mingus Manor was formed in an effort to help individuals and their senior pets when circumstances become unmanageable due to medical illness, loss of independent housing (moving to a nursing home), and terminal diagnosis. When family and friends can't take responsibility for a loved one's pet, we may be able to help.
Our goal is to comfortably house and provide veterinary care for all Mingus Manor residents while they enjoy their golden years. We want to dedicate this facility to their lifetime care if they cannot find their own forever home.
Mingus Manor is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides care for Senior and Special Needs pets.
Founded by Karen Scherer of Loving Hands Pet Care in Phoenix, AZ, the Sanctuary's mission is to provide the care needed to those pets, who are deemed unadoptable by other rescues and animal agencies. However, no animal is ever unadoptable! There is someone for everyone,as the saying goes, and if we can find those wonderful human beings that share our love for these two groups and are willing to give them loving homes, we are all for that.
We want our seniors and special needs animals to be matched with the right family. We ask that you fill out our adoption/foster application that is provided on our website. Once your application is received, we will contact you and discuss in detail what you are looking for. After that, we will come to meet you and the rest of your family for a home check. Our adoption fee is $75-$100.
