#Repost @susiesseniordogs with @repostapp ・・・ #NEWYORKCITY: Sweet boy Andrew is a 13 year old #ShihTzu mix. He is deaf and blind. Andrew was recently surrendered to the shelter and we need your help getting him back into a home as soon as possible. Please share for Andrew! Andrew will have a necessary eye surgery this week to remove both eyes. Remember, Andrew has already adjusted to his #blindness, but, like any surgery, he'll need to recover after it. For those of you who have pets who've had surgery, you know how it is to dote on your beloved once she or he is home safe from the vet. Andrew doesn't have a home to dote on him after his surgery, but we hope (hope!!) after this post he will find one. 😊 @AnimalHaven​ wrote, "Andrew is having surgery this week to have both of his eyes removed. Poor little guy. He definitely needs a shout out. He is up for adoption now. And then he’ll just need a day or so to recover." Andrew's bio: "Hi all, my name is Andrew and I was given up at the city shelter due to my old age and development of #cataracts. I am #deaf and #blind but please don't let that deter you from giving me a home. I am a very loving boy and have been socialized with children, cats and other dogs. When I'm around children and cats, I am relaxed, respectful, and tolerant. When I am interacting with them, I am gentle, well-behaved, playful, and affectionate. When I am around dogs, I am tolerant but rather aloof and will often walk away after greeting them. What can I say? I'm the anti-social kid in class. Although I like to go on walks and am housetrained (according to my previous adopter), I generally have a low activity level. If you have space in your home and your heart for an old dude like me, please come find me at the shelter!" To adopt Andrew, please email Tiffany at @AnimalHaven at dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org. To begin the adoption process, please fill out an application found here: http://bit.ly/1zwlx8K @AnimalHaven is located at 251 Centre Street, #NewYork, NY. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Friday from 12 noon to 7PM and Saturday and Sunday from 11AM to 6PM. (Adopters MUST come to the shelter to meet Andrew prior to adoption.) ❤️ #seniord

How to Help Your Dog Stay Active and Enjoy His Senior Years

#LONGISLAND, NY: This is Gladys. She is a 9 year old, blue #Corso mix. Gladys hopes you'll take just 60 seconds of your time to read the following. Pretty, please? You see, Gladys knows she is not the most "desirable" type to the majority of humans searching for a new dog to bring home. She's elderly and she has that "look." (Oh come on, you know, the one that people most often discriminate against.) She has been skipped over every single day at the shelter since December 30th, 2014. And Gladys is hoping her day to finally go home will come soon. Gladys was originally found tied to a pole at National Liquidators in #Hempstead, NY. But Gladys has moved beyond that horrible day of being left alone. And now Gladys seeks three things: Companionship, a home with no other pets, and tennis balls!! If Gladys could spend the rest of her days on the earth with a human who respected and loved her, all while having a tennis ball near by, then life would truly be complete for miss Gladys! That's all she wants. :) We met Gladys at her shelter a few days ago and she was really fun to hang out with--just bouncing around the yard wherever her ball would take her! She was very friendly and content to just chill, not needing to be entertained and happy to go with the flow. The shelter wrote, "Gladys has been through way too much for any dog. This gorgeous, 9 year old blue Corso mix, came to us as a stray in terrible shape. Gladys was dehydrated, with calluses on her legs and paws, severe dental disease including infected teeth. And the worst of all, an open pyometra (infected uterus) which can cause death if not treated. We performed an emergency surgery to remove the infected uterus, and we also performed a dental, and oral surgery, where we removed all the infections in her mouth and closed an open root. Gladys came to us just in time, and thankfully our medical staff was able to save her. Now it's your turn!" To adopt Gladys, please email the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter at animalinfo@tohmail.org or call 516.785.5220. The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue, #Wantagh, NY. ❤️ #seniordog #newyork #canecorso #mix

#Repost @susiesseniordogs with @repostapp ・・・ NEW YORK CITY: Does this look like a homeless senior dog to you? Shhh, don't tell Quince that! He may have 10 years of life experience and is currently living at a shelter, but Quince is paws-down the life of the party. And nothin' is going to stop his Party Train. In fact, Quince is the one who gets the party started! (Quince is so cool he's even been featured on @dogsofinstagram too!) 👊🏿 But the hard truth is that Quince has not had any party invites. Your home and your life is where Quince really belongs. He's happy-go-lucky guy who is not going to let his circumstances rain on his parade, but come on, who can get a good guy like Quince linger longer than he already has? We met Quince at Animal Haven shelter a couple weeks back and right out of the gate he's very friendly and outgoing. Quince is a @CairnTerrier mix who really loves to play. We'll say that again, he LOVES to play! He does get a tad bit feisty with his toys, but we think it's more coming from an over-excited-to-be-playing-with-you emotion rather than anything else. For this, however, it's suggested that Quince would do best in a home without very young children/babies who cannot understand boundaries or read behavior clues. Quince gets along well with other dogs and cats. The shelter wrote, "HI FRIENDS! I'm Quince. Sadly, my human who I lived with my entire life is very sick and can no longer take care of me. So @AnimalHaven took me in. I am a little dog with a big personality that usually grabs everyones attention. I love going for walks around the block with volunteers. I love to explore the stores and would love to check them out, but can't until I'm adopted. Please check me out at @AnimalHaven!" To adopt Quince, please contact Tiffany at @AnimalHaven​ by emailing dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org. @AnimalHaven is located at 251 Centre Street, New York, NY. (Adopters MUST come to the shelter to meet Quince prior to adoption.) ❤️ #seniordog #nyc #newyork

NEW HAVEN, CT: On August 29th we shared 10 year old Sanford's story for the seventh time on SSD. And he had not one inquiry this time. Typically, posts on SSD will receive interest within the first 24-48 hours after going up, and it drastically falls off after that. This time, not one person even inquired about Sanford's need for a home after his post. We are explaining all of this because we desperately need you to SHARE his story again. Sanford's future adopter has not yet heard about Sanford. Sanford's future adopter does not yet know he exists and that he has been waiting over a year at the shelter to find his home. We NEED to find that future adopter. PLEASE, tell ALL of your friends! We need new people to see Sanford. A few key points on Sanford: 1) He wants to be the only pet in your life 2) He's a low maintenance pup 3) He seeks companionship, friendship, buddy-ship 4) He must be adopted at the shelter 5) He is very friendly and loving and a whole lot of fun! Deb, a shelter volunteer, wrote, " No emails at all this time, which was sad...we usually get at least one even if they live far away. :( Sanford is a good, old dog that needs a loving home to spend his golden years in. He has some joint issues and walks with a limp but loves to be rubbed. Sanford loves to cuddle and would love a new home where he could take it easy on a couch." Sanford isn't asking for very much at all. He just wants to be the only pet in your home and that is his only requirement. He's housetrained, he's loving, and he wants to be your best friend!! Please, consider adopting Sanford? To adopt Sanford, please contact Deb at The Friends of the New Haven Animal Shelter by emailing fotnhas.info@gmail.com or calling 203.946.8110 with animal ID# 41. The shelter is located at 81 Fournier Street, New Haven, CT. They are open Monday through Saturday from 12:30PM to 4:30PM. ❤️ #seniordog #pleasetellALLyourfriends
