A senior dog has the misfortune of being held at a shelter which is described as “beyond full.” Nine-year-old “Papa Sawyer,” is in a Georgia animal shelter and his time is growing short.
An advocate gives Papa Sawyer a voice
“When I came to this shelter, I was infested with ticks It had been a long time since human kindness had shone on me. They say that when life gets hard, it will toughen you up. And I guess it does. But that doesn’t mean it has to make you hard and mean. I can take whatever life throws at me, but I’ll never let it kill my joy and my trust in my two-legged and four-legged friends. The world may have been unkind to me, but I always look for those moments of light and love.”
“I’m a sweet, gentle guy, and I share a kennel with another dog here, so I have that going for me, at least. If this is the end of my journey, that’s ok. I’ve seen a lot, not all of it good, but I got to know kindness. I’ll keep dreaming of a world where all of us unwanted pups have a warm, loving place to live, no matter how old we are. Please show me that my life matters.”
