A senior dog, in poor health, was recently surrendered to Florida’s Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, and now he needs a special home to live out the remainder of his life in. A social media plea was issued on Riley’s behalf early Saturday:
I have a special request and wanted to see if anyone is able to take this sweet boy into their home. Riley was a dog up for adoption at our shelter in 2016 (formally Tyler). He was a staff and volunteer favorite! He was recently returned to us due to his declining health.
Explaining Riley’s situation:
Riley is not a candidate for adoption at this time. We are actually looking for a foster hospice home (AKA fospice home) for him to live out his last days comfortably with tons of love. He will be on some meds to make him more comfortable and we can provide food, bedding, etc.
And his physical needs:
Riley is a bit wobbly so he needs some help walking. We can provide a sling to help get him around. He loves to walk with you with a little help. He adores affection and just wants to cuddle all the time.
Riley’s ideal home
His advocate writes:
Although his file says he is great with other dogs and children, we still recommend a quiet home preferably with no small children or rambunctious dogs. He can’t have any dogs jumping on him or knocking him over since he is so fragile.
