Schatzi, a 16-year-old Dachshund, was surrendered to the Baldwin Park Animal Care over the Thanksgiving weekend celebration. She trembled and didn’t seem to know where she was after her intake experience, and with her sight impairment, Schatzi was too afraid to even get off her bed.

Animal advocates didn’t take long sharing the senior’s desperate situation; quickly her heartbreaking video went viral:

Messages went out to local rescues specializing in senior dog care, and arrangements were underway. Then someone special came along; it’s the power of social media that makes miracles happen. On Tuesday, Schatzi was adopted by a woman who recently lost her own senior dachshund.

Check out this happy news. Her new adopter had been waiting in the parking lot of the shelter for Shatzi’s microchip to be checked.

Amber Lockspeiser is feeling happy.
