Susie's Senior Dogs

Super thrilled for 11 year old Pinky and 8 year old Rose! With some teamwork with @fosterdogs NYC, these two seniors ladies found freedom and left the @nycacc this morning! (Check out SSD ‘stories’ for more pics and vids!) Both Pinky and Rose will go right to #foster care and both will receive all the vet care they need (“the works” as we say 😬). Pinky was purchased from a pet shop 11 years ago and surrendered when her owner’s personal health issues became a problem in properly for caring for Pinky. We believe Pinky was loved, but perhaps isolated, and she is very fearful and timid with new people. But she has a very sweet heart underneath that nervousness. She hasn’t received vet care in a long time. She has very overgrown nails and all of her teeth are rotting. (And we’ll see what else the vet says upon thorough examination.) Pinky does warm up relatively quickly and we are absolutely certain she will blossom in a home again. 💕 Rose was also surrendered to the shelter by her owner due to the landlord saying she couldn’t stay. After being pulled, Rose went into foster care (with @luckypapayas) and will also be fully vetted prior to adoption. She is described as “painfully sweet” - and that she is!! Rose is super friendly with people and dogs and will make a wonderful, low key companion. She would be perfect for a first time adopter. Both Pinky and Rose are up for adoption with @FOSTERDOGS <— follow them to continue the journey with Pinky and Rose! These two are both in need of a forever home and we can’t wait to see their futures’ unfold! ❤️ #seniordog #fosterdogs #nyc #animalshelter #adoptdontshop

Need more posts and video on Rosey! She seems like a total lovebug in your stories. @susiesseniordogs

@fifirescue

Sad, but super happy they are both going to foster care and will get the treatment they need, I also foster and it’s the best thing!!!

@amicominginclear The shelter has a surrender prevention program that helps families with vet costs/landlord issues/training. As an open admission shelter, they have to take in every animal that comes through the door, no matter what. They took in a stray pig from the Bronx in the last few weeks. Most "no-kill" shelters are really limited admissions shelters, which get to pick which animals they take and can refuse animals for any reason (including space). It's far more productive to find adopters for harder to place dogs (like seniors or dogs with medical issues) or to promote fostering and adopting in general.

We are buying a house in the next month or two and then I’ll be ready to adopt a lovely senior! I’m keeping my eye on beautiful Rose ♥️

I’m in love with Pinky’ sweet lil face 😍😭 @candace_aintright

@amicominginclear

Yay!! Does the @nycacc make it known to those people dropping dogs off there that they are a kill shelter? Are there signs posted stating as much at the entrance? Are there other options when people find the need to surrender their pets?

@chloekardoggian

Best call I've gotten in a long time 💓💓💓💓 thank you so much
