Elderly dog

Elderly dog waits to be noticed inside busy animal control facility

An elderly dog, 15 years of age, is waiting to be noticed inside a busy Florida animal control facility. Lulu, a miniature poodle mix, has been at the Miami-Dade facility since January 11.

The odds are stacked against this senior dog – very few people enter shelters seeking to adopt an old dog. Despite the fact that much of Lulu’s life has already passed her by, she still deserves to live out the natural remainder of her life, in the company of someone who loves her.

Four days ago, a social networking page wrote a plea on this senior dog’s behalf:

Ugh….. my heart. A 15 year old girl, should be in a warm bed and in the arms of her loved one… NOT at a KILL SHELTER‼️‼️ This voiceless soul is Chachi #A2113331, a female white Poodle – Miniature mix, approximately 15 years old. Please share her, let’s help her find her new home before it’s too late!! 💔

(Note please states that the dog’s name is Chachi, but Petharbor refers to her as Lulu)

Information to save

Please share Lulu’s adoption information and help her find a loving home to spend the remainder of her life in.

Note: All inquiries about this dog must be made directly to the shelter. The Pet Rescue Report is not the point of contact. Thank you!

    I would foster her in a heartbeat but I am on the other side of the continent in Seattle!!!

    My husband and I specifically adopt older animals. Senior pets are fantastic companions and show their love every chance they have…… But sadly, I don’t think we are in the “majority” of adopters…..

    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…… Do they really think there is a long line of potential adopters for an elderly, medically fragile furbaby???

    It is heartbreaking to think of seniors being euthanized when they should be with their family…… to me, the worst fate is to be euthanized alone, afraid, in pain and unloved…….

    This shelter is a high kill shelter…… I hope local rescues can help out……. absolutely heartbreaking how an animal’s fate depends entirely on which shelter it ends up in…..
