Jupiter’s life matters as his tail happily wags but no one wants him

RESCUED!

Jupiter waits and hopes at the New York City Animal Care Center in Manhattan. He’s a spirited senior who has had trouble adjusting to shelter life amidst strange noises and people he has never seen before. He wags his tail when someone approaches, but how does one make this boy understand – no one wants him?

Found wandering the streets of New York City at the age of ten on April 1, 2020, Jupiter didn’t deserve this fate.

While so many other dogs move right into foster homes or are adopted, Jupiter sits in a small dark cage and looks forward to a daily walk or even a small amount of time spent with a member of the shelter staff. He’s a senior and doesn’t belong in a shelter, but instead of having a soft bed, a loving scratch behind the ears and gentle words from someone he can count on for his entire life, his days are numbered.

Surrender Reason: Stray, brought in by police
Shelter Assessment Rating: New Hope Only
Medical Behavior Rating: 2. Blue

PLACED! JUPITER – A SWEET SENIOR STILL HOPES FOR A FAMILY

'PLACED!Pulled by Rescue Dogs, Rescue SoldiersPlease honor your pledges or make a donation to liznewyorker@gmail.comWait and Hope.” ― Alexandre Dumas*** A SWEET SENIOR STILL WAITS – JUPITER REALLY NEEDS A FAMILY NOW! *** Please share, crosspost, tag and pledge for this amazing boy! Or Foster/Adopt him yourself. A $500 stipend is being offered the New Hope Rescue that pulls Jupiter.Maintaining an optimistic spirit and a wagging tail is hard when no one wants you. Jupiter doesn’t know why he never gets picked. While other dogs who are entering the shelter go straight into foster or are adopted, he continues to sit in a dark little cage, looking forward to his daily walk or time spent with the shelter staff. He soldiers on, still holding out hope that even though he is older, someone will love him. Let’s face it — seniors don’t belong in shelters. They should be throning on soft, comfy beds, surrounded by toys and enveloped in the love of the family they are devoted too. And when they are not, when they are living their final moments in a cold, dark and windowless kennel, it breaks out hearts. It may sound corny, but we think senior boy Jupiter is “out of this world” wonderful. He has a serious face but his wiggly behind tells us of his sweet, can-do spirit. Found abandoned and wandering the streets of NYC at the exalted age of 10, he still manages to greet everyone with a waggy tail. He did not deserve his fate – Jupiter is one incredibly gentle, vulnerable and kind soul who is looking for a family to love. No one is MORE deserving than him! He would love to take long, slow walks with his people and to have someone to love him back. Don’t let him die alone and unloved among strangers, hurry to save his life now!PLAYGROUP NOTES – DOG TO DOG SUMMARIES: 4/2/2020: Due to lack of appropriate helper dogs, a gate greeting is conducted. Jupiter approaches the female dog readily, placing his body sideways against the gate. He toe taps and appears interested.IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: 4/2/20: Jupiter is laying in his kennel upon approach and is easily leashed. When an attempt is made to collar him, Jupiter became tense with a straight tail. After a few minutes of treats, an attempt was made again and he again became very tense. In the play yard, he saw another dog and became tense after which he kept to himself. Jupiter pulled back when returning to kennel but was returned without issue.MEDICAL EXAM NOTES: Progress Exam.

“…and when they are living their final moments in a cold, dark and windowless kennel, it breaks our hearts,” a shelter volunteer wrote. “It may sound corny, but we think senior boy, Jupiter is ‘out of this world’ wonderful. He has a serious face but his wiggly behind tells us of his sweet can-do spirit.”

Jupiter is only available to an approved New Hope rescue organization. A $500 stipend has been offered to the rescue group who accepts this dog into their program.
