A fairy tale ending for a 13-year-old poodle left homeless in a shelter

Just a week ago, an elderly, deaf poodle had been so stressed and sad at the busy New York city animal shelter where she was surrendered, she had stopped eating. The 13-year-old friendly poodle, named Lola, became withdrawn and stressed at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center.


“We have a bittersweet holiday story to share tonight. We got a plea from the NYC ACC earlier today for Lola, a deaf 13 year old poodle mix who was surrendered because her owner became homeless. Lola was so stressed at the shelter, she refused to eat. She lost everything she had ever known. Our hearts broke for all involved here so we worked as quickly as possible and got precious Lola into an amazing loving home this evening,” posted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s  co-founder Jackie O’Sullivan.

And for everyone who helped with Lola’s future by sharing her plight, everyone who donated and for everyone who wished Lola well, thank you. Many thanks to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC who listen to those who cannot speak.

Lola is home. May this dog have many more cuddly days and nights.
