If only everyone cared for their dogs as well as this older gentlemen has done for the last 14 years in Bakersfield, California, our shelters would be nearly empty. In this special case however, circumstances have changed, and the help of animal advocates is being called upon to help.
The older man has given his three very sweet and affectionate bully dogs love and a wonderful home for their entire lives. Now no longer able to care for the dogs as to his declining health, a relative has rented the man a home in Morro Bay to be closer to his family and in a cooler climate to better accommodate his health issues.
A care taker, who is a relative, will live with the older gentleman in the house, but unfortunately can only care for one of the three senior dogs.
The other two dogs need help. Following is the message posted on Facebook’s social media:
“These loves are spayed and neutered..female and male, up to date on shots and sweet as can be! They have never been apart in 14 years, but can be separated if that’s how it has to be 🙁 A relative has asked for my help.) Please help find these sweethearts a place to live out their lives together! PLEASE HELP AND SHARE. You can help donate a night’s stay at the boarding facility by phone directly to the vet’s office. Just say it’s for Penny and Harlow!”
On Wednesday, Penny and Harlowe arrived at the veterinarian’s office and were being health checked; both dogs noted as extremely affectionate as they licked complete strangers with love and kindness. Follow the family’s Facebook page as volunteer Melissa White regularly updates the plight of these two senior dogs who need our help.
Donations to the Morro Bay Veterinary Clinic to cover Penny and Harlowe’s boarding costs can be called in; just mention their names. Please share their story and help these two find a home where they will continue to be loved and adored – just as any senior dog deserves.
