Today’s top news story is a wonderful one about senior citizens. Watching seniors though a live webcam to be exact. Now as a person well on in his years, I can tell you that just when life should be getting easier, it’s actually getting more difficult in many ways. Fortunately, I can do and say something about it. But when the senior is an animal, things can be much, much harder.
Canine Senior Citizens Hardest To Place
Sadly, senior dogs are one of the hardest populations to find homes for due to their shorter life spans and high medical costs. However, a non-profit has set up a “Forever Foster Home network” to help the pups find peace in their golden years. The network was set up by the Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary (OFSDS), located in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.
Senior Dogs Receive Love And Care
The sanctuary provides a loving home, good food, high-quality vet care, compassion and comfort to senior dogs for the remainder of their lives. The sanctuary generally houses approximately 120 senior dogs in-house, and in temporary and Forever Foster Homes. They provide lifetime homes for senior dogs while striving to raise awareness of the joys and challenges of living with older dogs.
It’s Not About The Quantity, But About The Quality
Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary doesn’t care about the quantity of time that the senior pups have left, but rather the quality of the life that they can provide them with for whatever that time may be. Another really cool thing that they do is live-stream their ‘Old Friends Senior Dogs’ from their senior dog gathering room, so people worldwide can watch mature and loving senior dogs eat their meals, play, and snuggle together.
Watch Seniors Live
Now stories like this warm this old fart’s heart, and I’ll tell you, that there takes some doing. So if you’re looking for something to do, look in on the time refined canines as they enjoy old age. Oh, and don’t forget that the sanctuary is non-profit, a right fancy term for ‘desperate for funds’, so consider e-transferring them a few bucks to help them be able to help others.
