And elderly, 15-year-old dog is urgently in need of help in Texas. The dog, Gertrude, is at the San Antonio Animal Care Services facility and she is running out of time.

On Gertrude’s Petharbor link, a deadline (which has already passed) is outlined:

I will need confirmed adoption, foster or rescue placement by 10 am on 08/23/2019.

Fortunately, Gertrude’s link is still active, but she needs assistance quickly or she will be put down.

Helping Gertrude

Please consider helping this deserving senior dog by taking a moment to share this article with her adoption information. She should be enjoying what is left of her life with someone who loves her – not alone in a frightening kennel run.

    That poor precious little treasure……. has anyone contacted Rescue Dogs Rock?

    I don’t know who to contact at this group, just that they can (& often do) help with seniors and medically fragile cases…..

    I hope a rescue group can save Gertrude. She deserves to be treated as a beloved family member for however long a time she has left and not die in the shelter alone, afraid and (worst of all) unloved…….

    WTF is wrong with people??? Most of us want our furbabies to be with us for as long as possible and we savor each and every day our precious treasures are with us……

    This so called family who gave up Gertrude has reserved places in Hell waiting where they will burn forever for their cruelty…… Do they really think there is a long line of potential adopters for an elderly furbaby???

      I have tried to reach out to Rescue Dogs Rock, but since I don’t know anyone there personally, my email asking for help is in the “general” account……

      I am praying that Gertrude is saved……. heartbreaking situation………
