Commend Animal Shelter for Showing Compassion to Elderly Abandoned Dog

Commend Animal Shelter for Showing Compassion to Elderly Abandoned Dog. Recently, an 18-year-old dog was heartlessly abandoned by her owner at an animal shelter in Florida. This dog, now called Friday, has been taken in by the Tri-County Humane Society in Boca Raton. Although Friday is now in the care of loving volunteers and staff members, Friday will never understand why she will no longer be able to go back to the place she has always called home. Commend the volunteers and staff members of Tri-County Humane Society for their continued efforts in making Friday as comfortable as she can possibly be. FULL STORY IN THE PETITION LINK>> http://forcechange.com/47476/commend-animal-shelter-for-showing-compassion-to-elderly-abandoned-dog/ ** PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE ** thankyou.

    3. Every animal should have a loving home. I wonder if the person who left this lovely dog could no longer provide for her. I hope she lives out the rest of her life in comfort.

  7. There are nice people in this world and thankfully, this girl found them. How sad her own family could be so heartless as to dump this poor old dog. Hopefully, she will find a wonderful home to spend her last days. Thank you for helping her.

  8. I am so glad you are taking care of this poor senior. One has a hard time understanding how someone can abandon their aged friend like that. I commend you all for making her as comfortable as you can! I hope someone comes who can let her live out what small time she has in the warmth of a home. God bless you.

  18. Is this a no-kill shelter, please? Otherwise.....This story is appalling as a statement of humans, no matter what their problem.....unless they left the dog because they "had" to and explained their plight to whomever they left Friday with. Please make sure this dog finds a foster or adoptive home. Thank you.

    2. I volunteer in our city's kill shelter and people do this all the time. We just got 2 elderly dogs 15 and 13 that lived together - we're trying to get them to a rescue that won't split them up - otherwise they don't stand a chance. It really can sour you on humans.

  20. to all those Wonderful Volunteers! Keep up the good work! At a shelter I used to manage we had set up a retirement Home for elderly pets and those whose ownners had passed away. Funded by bequests and donations it still exists after over 30 years.

  29. Good karma! Other people I know experienced a surprising level of grief when their old dog died or had to be euthanased due to terminal illness/pain.Abandoning elderly companions shows a shocking lack of compassion. Same treatment for aged parents I wonder?

  30. Thank you and may Gob richly bless you and the staff. I know Friday is grateful. She's probably very confused, but she is grateful.

  33. I'm glad she found someone. I'm betting it was difficult for whomever had owned her before to do that though--they took care of her for 18 beautiful years, I can't think that it would be easy for anyone who'd taken care of a radiant soul on four legs to do that.
    Hugs,

Thank you to those who took in this beautiful dog and I hope he will be able to live a great life in his remaining years. I hope someone can help this dog forget the pain and void of being abandoned. Fill his days with love and attention. Thank you so much.

  52. I feel so sad for that dog, all its life with the same owner and now to be lost and wondering,when she will be going home. This really makes me cry for her. When someone takes on the life of any animal that means you promise to love them and make sure they will always be ok no matter what. Why do people even bother getting animals only to give them away if they do something wrong or whatever unexcuseable excuse they have. Make sure to think that animals have feelings to and dont deserve anything humans dont. I pray that someone wilk take in this dog snd give it the best of her remaining years. Lets all ask god to help us with this prayer for her. Id give up anything to make sure that every animal had a chance to love and be loved and live life with thier best friend and campion meaning thier owner. I wish this dog and all others the best from the bottom of my big heart.

  54. Thank you for giving this dog the chance to live. May her remaining days reveal to her that love can manifest in many ways and from new faces in new places. May she learn that caring friends are looking after her and her new life be more enriching than her previous one. Love conquers all. Blessings.

  55. The only reliable measure of a human is its humanity. Our companion animals are a sign of our higher thinking. Setting in its prime place, the fact that our humanity should be firstly about others of our kind, we also have a direct responsibility to our companions. With their old age, that responsibility becomes greater, not lesser.. and then there is love.

    It is always good to hear of active, caring, human compassion for animals. Keep up the good work... and thank you.

  63. Dear Shelter Workers,
    As a former shelter volunteer who saved many animals from death, including elderly dogs and cats, I know the importance of acknowledging your compassion. Our group was mistreated, harassed and eventually ousted from the shelter by city employees and police. During our terrible ordeal, no one stepped up for us or gave us any support. It was a devastating loss for us and for all the animals we could no longer save.
    I just want to let you know I appreciate how difficult it is to deal with abandoned and suffering animals and it takes special dedication and compassion to do this work. I commend all of you for your kindness and hard work. All the best to you. Brenda

  64. I wish for the day when the kind service shown to Friday the dog by the TriCounty Human Society of Boca Raton, FL will be the standard - and NOT something out of the ordinary that we are urged to commend. Thank you very much to all of the other shelters in the US and Canada (and all around the world) who care for abandoned pets all year 'round.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thank you so much for helping her feel safe. We lost our at least 18 year old cat to old age in the spring and it still breaks my heart. I can't imagine giving her away. So sad.

  66. Bless You All for Your Genuine Love, Care, Sacrifice, and Hard Work for those who are misfortunate and voiceless. You make the difference and shows the significance of Life in all Creation. Love, linda.

  67. There should be more people like you. The person who gave up the older dog should be ashamed. I believe in karma and that person will someday need senior care or assisted living, but won't receive it.

  71. This is absolutely wonderful!! I wish more shelters looked at the elderly animals there like you have for Friday. Some people are completely heartless and I hope the horrible person that did this sees this and is riddled with guilt. I just lost my 18 year old Pekinese Buddy this March and I couldn't have imagined not being there for his final moments - so that he could feel loved all the way to the end. It should be til death do you part with your pets. Thanks for the positive message. :)

  73. Thank you so very much for showing love ad compassion to this poor, confused, and probably heart-broken dog.
    In 2012 I took in a record 6 cats who's owners had died or been put in nursing homes and a 20 year old dog who's owner had died.
    Geriatric animals simply have no chance at adoption in a regular pound/shelter situation.
    THANK YOU for taking the extra steps necessary to save this dog's life.
    Please continue to help the animals whenever you can.
    You will be blessed for your actions.
    I LOVE YA'LL,
    Terri

  74. It is very sad that in the last years of his life someone abandonded this old fellow, unless the original owner died or became ill and relatives did not want the responsibility. I know of a similar instance where a someones elderly mother died and they had her 2 animals put down, one for being overweight, and the other being an old dog as well. I was tuly sad by it, but she did not want the resposibility, and felt they were not adoptable. I recnetly had to put to sleep last year my 19 year old German Shepherd-Bassett Hound, and it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, I could not ever imagine not being with your aging loyal pet till the end. Some people have no conscience....

    ReplyDelete
  75. It is so pathetic to see that when their pets gets older the owners disposes them as these animals are like commodities. I hope the people do this unethical mistretments to beloved & loyal companions should suffer the same when their time comes. Such individuals should be left alone to die alone without any loved one near by.
