At a rural shelter in Oklahoma, a 19-year-old dog was surrendered on Friday because his owner decided he didn’t want to pay anymore veterinarian bills. A rescuer reached out for help; when she spotted the dog in the shelter, she left in tears.

Always & Furever Midwest Animal Sanctuary responded immediately. The elderly dog could not have been more confused or heartbroken.

“At what should be the time when someone cradles him and comforts him he was abandoned and he can’t walk on slick cement floors, he has to crawl to his water and food dish.”

An immediate plea went out on social media asking for a hospice foster. He had not been dog tested, because he could barely stand. Yes, this poor boy is likely dying, but shouldn’t he be granted dignity and be surrounded by love?

“I don’t even know his name but I know that I love him, and he needs all our prayers and shares. One way or another sweet boy we are going to MAKE SURE you are safe and loved.

“…I have faith someone is going to love you just as much as we do already.”
