Tucson Tails: Veterinary Aid for Senior Dogs Rescued from PACCby Karyn Zoldan on Jul. 08, 2013, under Adopt Me! Adopt Me! Adopt Me!, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
I have a soft spot for senior dogs. (Maybe because I’m an old dog myself.) It breaks my heart when people relinquish their old dogs to Pima Animal Control (PACC) or any county shelter. Why? They have less chance of being adopted as people seem hell bent on puppies and younger dogs. Me, I rather have an older dog who is probably used to being in a house and probably has some training.
I know people die, lose their jobs, or have to go to nursing homes or live with relatives who don’t want dogs but it still breaks my heart for these poor dogs who are fearful, get sick, and depressed not knowing what the future brings while at PACC.
To help the current barrage of senior dogs currently looming large at PACC, Tucson Cold Wet Noses will pay for a basic blood panel, dental, and spay/neuter (if needed) through ABC Low Cost Veterinarian Clinic at Country Club/one block south of Speedway (address: 3113 E 1st St, Tucson, AZ 85716).
This offer is extended to any dog rescue who rescues a senior dog or any adopter who adopts a senior dog from PACC. You must email firstname.lastname@example.org to get this great benefit of rescuing a Pima County Animal Care Center senior dog.
Wow! Thank you Tucson Cold Wet Noses!
Please share this far and wide.
Numerous studies consistently prove that pets are good for people’s well being. If you or someone you know is depressed and just sits in their house watching reality TV and listening to crazed radio talk show hosts, you or these folks need a dog to walk and to care for. People with pets live longer, have lower blood pressure, and are more active. Everyone benefits from unconditional love.
