Nearly one year ago, a senior dog named Frankie lost the only home he had ever known when he was surrendered by his family to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, New York. Though the now 12-year-old dog has been heavily networked on social media, there are now concerns that his life may end at the shelter…alone and unloved.
On Wednesday, the Facebook createdon Frankie’s behalf shared a post expressing this very fear:
LIFE IS ABOUT SECOND CHANCES – BUT TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME FOR ME, UNLESS ONE PERSON CARES…PLEASE DON’T LET MY LIFE END IN A SHELTER
Information about Frankie
Details about this homeless dog have been shared on his Facebook page:
Frankie would love a home where he can kick off his leash, relax his paws, and snuggle in to a warm cozy bed while watching your favorite TV show or just a quiet moment gazing at the stars.
Frankie needs a savvy experienced owner who will keep him away from situations that make him uncomfortable. Frankie is dog selective, and would do best in a household with older teens, at the youngest, if you have children. A meet and greet with the entire family including any possible dog siblings is required at the shelter. Additionally, a fenced in yard is a MUST for this boy.
None of us know how much time we have left on this earth, and it’s just so heartbreaking to think that Frankie will live out the rest of his life at a shelter.
You can lend this deserving senior dog a hand by visiting his Facebook page, networking this article, and helping his adoption information get out to the people who may be able to offer him a loving home.
