She’s still waiting. Senior pooch Lady has been at our shelter for more than a year, and that’s just too long. So we’re asking all of our supporters to use social media to help Lady find a home for the holidays. Dedicate your Facebook status to Lady, send a daily tweet linking to this blog, email all your friends—and together we can find her a home!
Lady is sweet and petite, and she adores hugs and kisses, playing tug-of-war, and—it’s true—sitting in your lap!
Before being rescued by ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement Agents, seven-year-old Lady had been left to suffer painful osteoarthritis in her hind legs, with no end in sight. But with daily medication she’s happy and healthy, and she now loves brisk walks!
There’s something extra-special about the bond you form with an older dog.They’re calmer, wiser and maybe even a little more appreciative of your kindness. But it can take them a little longer to find their forever homes; they could really use your help.
And if you can get yourself to NYC and meet our sweet Lady, please do! She needs a special adopter who sees her as perfect just the way she is. Is that adopter you?
If you live in a teens-and-up household and have a little dog experience, please call our Animal Placement department in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900, or come meet this special Lady at our Adoption Center in Manhattan.
