(near) EUGENE, OR: 11 year old Lucky is incredibly patient, social, and chill. She loves to meet new people and quickly makes friends wherever she goes. If you're looking for a tag-a-long dog, Lucky will make you proud everywhere you go! The unfortunate part is that Lucky has been lingering at the shelter since early this year. Which actually isn't too surprising for an 11 year old gal of her size, people aren’t seeking dogs like her out. πŸ™ But if there is any place that can help Lucky find love, it's right here! So we ask...PLEASE SHARE! βš“οΈβš“οΈβš“οΈβš“οΈ A shelter volunteer wrote, "Lucky came to the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her. This 11 year old female pit bull had some skin issues when she first came in and was an absolute doll during her daily baths and in the car on several trips to a specialist in Portland. She is happy to ramble along on walks or just hang out in the sun with us. We’re all very fond of her and hope to find her a great home. Lucky went to an event on the beach recently and was a real star. She met lots of people (at one point she was sitting on the lap of a woman she’d just been introduced to) and dogs and even took third prize for one of the costume categories. πŸ₯‰ Lucky will need a fully fenced yard. She has lived with dogs and children. The shelter requires all members of the household, including your dogs, to meet prospective adoptees at the shelter. We do home checks, but for those of you who live outside of the county, you’ll simply need to bring photos of your home, yard, and fence. Because Lucky is over ten, her adoption fee is $50.00 and includes micro-chipping and registration." To adopt Lucky, please email with questions or to apply! Clatsop County Animal Shelter is located at 1315 SE 19th St, Warrenton, OR. The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12 noon to 4PM. ❀️ #seniordog#oregon#adopt#adoption#adoptdontshop

πŸ™ŒπŸ½ YAY!YAY!YAY!! SSD is thrilled to update that we've already raised over $15,000 towards our $40k end-of-year goal!! We're nearly halfway there! Fundraising is the not-so-exciting side of animal rescue and we appreciate your patience while we ask for donations. With that said, we're gonna' keep asking anyway! 😁 SSD is a unique 501c3 organization that has the ability to allocate funds to the specific needs of #seniordogs all around the country. Most typically, this includes dental care, spay/neuter surgeries, heartworm treatment, specialty surgeries, therapy sessions, and monthly medications. SSD sponsors pretty much anything that will make the senior dog in need more comfortable and more adoptable to the general public, while also alleviating the financial burden for the rescue or shelter that is caring for them. It's with much pleasure that SSD is able to give so generously because of you! Thank you so very much to everyone who has donated so far.

"You had posted about Bailey in May 2017 or so with the picture above. As soon as I saw that picture, I knew I had to go to the @arkvalleyhumanesociety to see if we'd be a match. We were. I brought her from the mountains to the city to live with me. Bailey was 14 years old when I adopted her. We were able to spend 16 months together before Bailey passed away in September 2018. Bailey was a true trooper. After adopting her, I had taken her to my regular vet to better understand what the state of her health was. She had so much arthritis, as well as Bridging Spondylosis. The vet put her on some medication to help manage any pain and help her feel a little better. In addition to the daily walks, I had an acupuncturist come to the house to treat her. When that didn't seem to be providing the benefits I had hoped, Bailey went to weekly physical therapy appointments where she did hyrdo therapy (a treadmill in water) and some massage. It all definitely helped, but couldn't help Bailey live forever. I can't say enough about how wonderful Bailey was. My friends all say that me adopting Bailey was a wonderful thing for Bailey. I tell them was a wonderful thing for me to have Bailey in my life. Seriously. She was SO sweet and smart...and she reminded me every day to be patient and kind (let's just say her poop escapades were legendary...again, let's just say I'll never understand exactly how she managed to poop into the cupholder in the rear passenger door side pocket). The day Bailey passed away, I was uncertain as to whether it was the right time. We all struggle when faced with this decision, but as I shared with my friends...about an hour after the vet left the house, I was writing a Facebook post to share the news, and I felt Bailey's energy/spirit enter the room. She said 'Mom. Mom! MOM! Guess what? This is INCREDIBLE. I feel FANTASTIC.' Believe me or not. I am forever grateful that the universe conspired to connect me with Bailey. She was an amazing dog and I am so much the better for having had her in my life...even if it wasn't long enough. -Laura" ❀️ #seniordog#foreverloved#rainbowbridge#adoptdontshop

(near) OKLAHOMA CITY, OK: Who says you need all four legs? Maverick is perfectly happy and capable on just three! Maverick is 10 years old and has been at the shelter for one year. He was featured a couple weeks ago on SSD, but he's still without any adoption interest whatsoever. Maverick's relaxing game is strong - he loves to just hang out! He's a really stellar companion and it's a shame he's been overlooked for so long. PLEASE SHARE! πŸ† @petsandpeoplehumanesociety wrote, "Maverick has a great personality, kind of a goofy, marmaduke type. We had him at the shelter for a year or so and was overlooked and overlooked. Finally, a great family came and adopted him. He was great in the home. He followed everyone around from room to room just wanting to be near them. He was wonderful with the older son who was 10 years old and he loved him, but the younger son, who was 8 years old, had a previous fear of dogs and just could not warm up to Maverick. So unfortunately they had to return him. Maverick is a sweet boy who loves his stuffed animals and toys. We think he would be best in a home as an only dog or with large playmates like himself. He also would prefer older, calmer children as he is a little older and calmer himself! He also likes older, calmer dogs who won't get in his face. Smaller dogs and puppies that are busy just are not his thing. He would be fine hanging out with other dogs as long as they are just wanting to 'hang out' too! Several months ago, Maverick started dragging his leg and foot. We tried several braces but finally, at the vet recommendation, his rear leg was amputated. And his personality actually blossomed! He healed quickly and is actually more active and playful now. He is housebroken and weighs about 60 pounds. We would adopt Maverick to an out-of-area home but the adopter must be willing to drive to meet him and drive him home. We take good care of him and love him but he so deserves his own home in his golden years." To adopt Maverick, please email to apply! @petsandpeoplehumanesociety is located at 701 Inla Avenue, #Yukon,#OK. ❀️ #seniordog#adoptme#oklahoma

(near) BALTIMORE, MD: 8 year old Nico is Mr. MagnΓ­fico! Nico is looking for a lasting relationship. He's a wonderful partner and easy to live with. Nico currently resides at the shelter, but was given a sleepover with a staff member to test out his habits in the home. Nico is housetrained and perfectly content to spend his days snoozing. Nico is back at the shelter now and he is patiently waiting to find a permanent home. He wants more than just a one night stand, he wants forever! PLEASE SHARE! πŸ•πŸ›‹πŸ‘ Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center wrote, "Nico was surrendered by his owners due to moving somewhere his breed was not allowed. He has never had had an application or a rescue interested. We did the movie poster advertisement recently but didn’t garner any interest (at least not anyone that came to the shelter to apply). A staff member recently took Nico on a sleep over and reported that he was super well behaved, and mostly wanted to snore on a dog bed. He had no accidents. And he did well in the car. He is a staff favorite and we are sad he is so often overlooked. He would be good with older kids (our behaviorists recommend 10 years and older due to his size, strength and reactivity towards other dogs), and doesn’t need a ton of exercise, and is really mellow and sweet. Nico is okay with dogs at a distance, but not in close spaces, so he needs to be the only pet in the home. Nico has recently developed β€˜creaky hips’. Our veterinarian did x-rays and have determined he has some hip dysplasia in his right him. He should likely continue on a maintenance plan of joint supplements, and lose a little weight to keep his joints in good shape. Nico’s adoption fee is $75. We accept adopters from all over, but they must come meet the dog(s) in person. We do require all family to visit. We adopt out to both home owners and renters (we check property ownership) and renters must show proof of landlord approval for a dog." To adopt Nico, please email to apply!

NEW YORK, NY: He is a gentleman who loves dogs, cats and people. He is Frank the Tank! This 8 year old very handsome man is up for adoption and describe as "the perfect dog." Frank will be attending SSD's adoption event tomorrow in #SoHo,#NYC and hoping to get some visitors! Frank was pulled from a local shelter back in early September. He was found as a stray and very skinny. He's still skinny but working on it. And he needs someone to help plump him and thrive for all the rest of his years. PLEASE SHARE to help spread Frank the Tank's story!! πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ§‘ @shelterchic wrote, "Fabulous 'Frank the Tank' is ready and eager to go to his new home. Frank is around 8 years old and weighs 50lbs. He is a perfect family dog. Frank is great with people of all ages, dogs and cats! Frank is a medium energy gentleman who enjoys playing and going on walks. In fact, the only thing slowing Frank down is he’s an adult now and does not go in for silly puppy shenanigans! If you are looking for a dog to take on adventures, relax by the fireplace, go to the dog park, spend the day building a couch fort - Frank is your man." To adopt Frank, please email with any questions. Drop by Saturday for a meet-and-greet with Frank! EVENT DETAILS: Saturday, November 10th at @ragandbone, 117 Mercer Street, SoHo, NYC from 1-4PM.

🌈 "I am sad to write to you that our beloved old man, Grandpa Brooke, passed away this week. As you know, SSD was instrumental in his journey from the shelter to our home. Brooke had been dumped at the @nycacc shelter at the age of 13 by the only family he had ever known and, like many senior dogs, was at risk of not making it out of the shelter. I remember in one of your posts about him, you said that you don't often use the word 'dumped' but that it was so appropriate in this case. As a senior pittie, his chances of getting a new home were almost none. When I saw Brooke in your social media feed and read his story, I knew that he was the one for us. We had two pups at the time - a young pittie and an older basset hound, and he was the perfect addition to our family as the elder statesman. As he aged, he taught us a lot about caring for a super senior. We got him laser therapy and hydrotherapy to manage the pain from his luxating patellas and to keep his compensating muscles strong. We got him acupuncture and chiropractic care to help his body stay balanced and strong. We got him a wheelchair when his legs could no longer carry him on walks past the end of our driveway. We were blessed with two and half years with him. Yes, it was tough to watch his body slow down and to see his face get more grey fur, but I wouldn't trade the past two and a half years for anything. It was an honor to be his mom and dad in the last years of his life. We are the lucky ones who were chosen by him. We were so sad to lose our senior basset in July and even more devastated to lose Gramps just a few shorts months later. There is something so special about shepherding a senior through the twilight of their lives. The love and the strong bond that develops between a senior dog and his or her family is unlike anything else. I continue to believe in the SSD purpose and mission. To your followers, I want to say: Please be a vocal advocate for senior dogs. Tell your family, your friends, your neighbors, and even strangers on the street. Yell it from the rooftops. They need our voices now more than ever. Thank you, Linda, forever Brooke's mom" @lifeinthepitlane ❀️ #seniordog

"I just wanted to email you and the SSD family with an update about Oliver (adopted as Orville from your LA event last year). I don't think I shared this last year, but my husband and I talked about adopting a dog for years and the time was 'never right.' When I saw you were having an #adoptionevent in Los Angeles, I told my husband we had to go. We lived in Las Vegas and I was out of the country up until 3 days before the event, but I couldn't be talked out of going. We decided ahead of time that we wanted a smaller dog...our hearts had other plans! The moment Oliver laid his head in my husbands lap, we knew he was our family. And it has been a whole year! November 4th was Oliver's 1st adoptiversary and he's doing great! He snores like the old man he is, he loves tennis balls and kisses and his favorite thing to do is lay his head in your lap for rubs. He was 58lbs when we adopted him and it took several months to get him to a healthy 70lbs. In April, Oliver's health started to decline and he got really sick. Oliver has degenerative hip dysplasia and polycystic kidneys so he was in a lot of pain for who knows how long. Luckily, there's no sign of kidney disease and Oliver has responded so well to medicine, and a new diet! It's almost like he gained a few years of life back - he loves chew toys (he was indifferent before), he's playing more, and is much more vocal! He also has a love for chasing bunnies - he's too slow to get remotely close but don't tell him that! Oliver is the best and we're so grateful to have him in our family! -Margaret" ❀️ #seniordog#oneyear#adopted#adoption#adoptdontshop
