An emaciated, blind, senior dog, who was abandoned in a rainy church parking lot earlier this summer, has died. The elderly dog, dubbed Lucy, was taken under the wing of ThisIsHouston, in June and the organization found her a hospice foster home, which ultimately became her forever home.
On Monday, the rescue agency broke the sad news of Lucy’s passing, recounting her journey:
Our sweet Lucy has crossed the rainbow bridge 💔
On June 25, she was dumped in a church parking lot in the middle of storms. She laid there, not knowing where whe was. She was confused, alone and probably terrified. She couldn’t see what was going on, as she was blind.
By the Grace of God, someone saw her there and she was brought to our attention. We had her rushed to the emergency room where we found out all her issues and medical needs. She became a hospice case.
We found her a home to spend her remaining days in, but her hospice foster decided to adopt her. She had her ups and downs. Good days and bad days. But she has been having seizures the past two nights and four seizures last night. Her body didn’t recover.
She would eat, but she couldn’t urinate on her own and couldn’t walk. Her time was here. She was ready to go and she told us 💔
And sharing words of regret that her pitiful plight was not discovered sooner:
We are so upset we didn’t get to rescue her sooner. But her remaining time on Earth was filled with so much love. And for that, we are grateful. We are grateful she got to live a couple weeks surrounded by love and being spoiled.
She had so many supporters rooting for her. We all love you, Lucy. Rest In Peace, sweet girl ❤️
Rest easy sweet Lucy.
