People often ask why I care for elderly and special needs dogs. I generally answer by saying that they need me. But the truth is, I need them.
There are many folks whose main priority in life is to nurture. We thrive only when having someone to care for. When a rescue reaches out to me, describing a small dog abandoned because of blindness, old age, or other disabilities I step in. I can’t say no.
There are benefits to dealing with these special little beings—they love unconditionally, they snuggle unendingly, and they give me a sense of purpose. Yes, I understand that they will probably die within weeks or months but I’ll make sure they are the very best of days, for the dog and for me.
Adopt. Foster. Care.
If you have questions about this or any other dog-related issue, please contact me at 856.981.8957. There is never a fee for phone or email consultation.
