On August 28, Tucson Tails blogged about some PACC pets that needed to be rescued. I wrote:
“Skipper #444886 might be old at 11 years but he still has a lot of love to give as a Golden Retriever mix. He has been at PACC since July 17. Prior to arriving at the shelter, he had to fend for himself on the streets. Skipper is possibly deaf and also needs teeth cleaning. He is an easy gentle walker and gets along great with his kennel mates that come and go. Poor Skipper is always left behind. Hopefully, someone reading this wants a Skipper in their life?”
The next day Laurie OliversMom Gaetano saw Skipper’s sweet photo on Facebook and asked FAIR (Foundation for Animals at Risk) to pull him so he could be fostered. They did. He had a dental. And he’s not deaf.
Some people might be skeptical as to who would want an 11 year old dog but I like to think of the glass as half full, and wonder who wouldn’t want an 11 year old dog?
It turns out that Laurie only fostered Skipper now Charlie for about a week before this special boy got adopted.
Charlie is so loveable and appreciative that kindness has found him in his later years. It makes my heart sing!
Tucson Tails wants every senior dog (and cat) to have a loving home. Most of the time, I don’t know what the outcome is. If they were adopted, I try to update the blog post, when I know. It’s rare, I find out about a happy ending (with photos).
I am so grateful to Laurie, FAIR, and Suzanne (his adopter) and everyone who helped make his forever home possible. (Photos by Antonia Adams & Laurie G.)
