On Tuesday, a New Jersey animal welfare agency posted a poignant image of a senior dog who had lost his home after his owner decided to surrender him. The 11-year-old dog, named Blue Bear, was waiting for his family to come back and take him home. Trenton Animals Rock explains:
Blue Bear was surrendered today and has spent the last hour crying at the door. He’s 11 years old, severely arthritic and in desperate need of a loving home tonight. The shelter is a rough place for any dog, but for a 130 lb dog who just lost their only owner, it is devastating.
The agency was not condemning Blue Bear’s owner…they were trying to find a safe place for the distraught senior dog to go. And their wish was granted. An update to the post reads:
LATEST: IN FOSTER ❤️ More soon. Exhausting day. And this isn’t all of it.
A photo, and comment, explains that Blue Bear is “comfy and safe.”
This is what rescue work is all about – caring for displaced pets until they find somewhere new to go. Great work Trenton Animals Rock!
