On Saturday afternoon, a no-kill animal shelter in Chicago, Illinois, issued an urgent plea for help on behalf of an elderly dog who is in need of a hospice foster home. The shelter, Felines & Canines, reached out to Facebook followers with the urgent request for help for the ailing senior dog:
Hospice foster needed. Felines & Canines took in this 12 year old Chow mix with huge tumors. His name is Little Boy. He is having problems walking and more than likely does not have much time left.
Little Boy has another organization behind him…the Live Like Roo Foundation has offered to sponsor up to $500 for his care. Little Boy may not have a good deal of time left to live, but his rescuers are hopeful that he can spend the time that he does have in the company of a loving person, in a comfortable home.
According to Felines & Canines, Little Boy was happy to enjoy his new, soft bed and he even had a “little pep in his step” after he was trimmed. Anyone interested in helping this deserving senior dog can email Abby@felinescanines.org or send a message to the shelter on Facebook.
