SAN DIEGO, CA: Recognize this gal?! Mia been featured three times on SSD already and nobody is taking interest! Mia received an upgrade at the shelter and moved into a 'suite' near the lobby, which means more viewing opportunities and higher chance of being seen by potential adopters. She was also featured on the local news in hopes that her story would be seen by someone who would fall in love. But miss Mia is still patiently waiting at the shelter - she's been there since August! We'd love to help Mia find a home before the month of January ends. PLEASE SHARE! 🙏🏽🤞🏽🙏🏽🤞🏽 @sdhumanesociety wrote, "Mia was surrendered by her previous owner due to landlord reasons. She is a mellow, senior lady who would like nothing more than a comfortable home to lounge in and a family to take her on walks around the neighborhood. In her previous home, she was great around children and would make a great pooch for a family. At the humane society, we've learned Mia is uncomfortable around other dogs, but will avoid rather than confront. She has been very calm and sweet in our care. And she loves to ride in the car. Mia is currently being treated for eye discharge. All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. We adopt to people outside of San Diego, but they must meet the pet in person. Mia’s adoption fee includes her spay, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days of worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam!" To adopt Mia, please email info@sdhumane.org with animal ID# 462296 if you have any questions. (Please note that visiting Mia in person at the shelter is the best way to get questions answered quickly and to learn more about Mia!) @sdhumanesociety is located at 5500 Gaines Street, #SanDiego,#CA. ❤️ #seniordog#adoptme#mammamia#adoptdontshop

(near) SHREVEPORT, LA: Jenni lived her entire life outdoors and was never made to feel a member of the family. She was eventually surrendered to the local shelter, and Jenni struggled because she had never known anything different than the yard she lived in. At the shelter, she would even sleep outside in the rain because everything else made her nervous. She has since found a foster family and is thriving! But Jenni really wants to find a forever home. She's come so far and is a wonderful companion - she loves indoor life now! Let's help this girl find the retirement of her dreams! PLEASE SHARE! 🍌🥦🍌 @pawsnela of Louisiana wrote, "This girl is Jenni and she was surrendered to a local no kill shelter after her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She struggled at the shelter and would panic and pace constantly when her kennel door was closed. The shelter workers pretty much gave her the run of the place and she spent most of her time curled up next to a pile of sandbags outside of her kennel. She even slept out there in the rain. 😢 They reached out to PAWS for help and we were able to move Jenni into foster care. She is thriving! Jenni's previous owner said she had always been an 'outside dog' but in foster care she took right to housetraining and sleeps next to the bed each night. And she sleeps through the night. Jenni has shown no anxiety since leaving the shelter and is fine loose in the house when her foster is at work. She is good with other dogs (but she will fuss at the other dogs if they roughhouse too close to her). She has arthritis in her hips and needs to be gently handled. She does slip on the tile occasionally so prefers to take a route with rugs. Her foster does not have a cat, but believes she would ignore one and certainly they could out-maneuver her if she got too nosy with them. 😉 Jenni is 9-10 years old and weighs 55 pounds. She does have some arthritis and takes a joint supplement daily. Jenni is located in #Monroe,#LA. Transport is available and potential adopters can contact for an application."

There is nothing better than a long term shelter dog finding love! 13 year old Tiger got ADOPTED!! 😍😍😍 Tiger lived at @bornfreepetshelter for the last five years. He arrived after his former owner passed away, and he was already 8 years old at the time. The volunteers felt that because Tiger was a senior, and that he had several growths and moles that people consider to be “ugly," is the reason why he never had much interest in all that time at the shelter. Thankfully, Tiger's new mom Meghan knows it's what is on the inside that counts! This boy is truly lucky to have found such an amazing family to care for him so dearly right away. Because of them, Tiger's twilight years will only be filled with love! Meghan wrote, "Tiger is doing absolutely amazing and LOVING his new life. He didn’t waste a second settling in and getting comfortable with his brother and sister... it’s like he has been here the whole time and we couldn’t be happier. He has so much personality, love, and curiosity. 😂 Snuggle Level = Expert! Here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks!" ❤️ #seniordog#adopted#happilyeverafter#thegoodlife#adoptdontshop

BURBANK, CA: The last year has been a long journey for Dillon. It started when she and her fur sister were surrendered to the shelter. They were separated and it broke Dillon's spirit at the time. Fast forward to today and Dillon is doing much better. It might even be safe to say she has found the best version of herself! She's overcome a lot of hurdles and has undergone a lot of personal development. The only thing she's yet to find is an adopter and a forever home. It's frustrating, but we're determined to change her luck soon! PLEASE SHARE! 🧡✴️🧡 @pacificcoastdogrescue wrote, "This month marks one year since Dillon’s hopes for a new home began. Dillon is an 8 year old, 73 pound lab mix. Dillon and her sister, to whom she was very bonded, were left at the shelter. We don’t know why. In hopes of giving them better chances at adoption, they were separated at the shelter and Dillon’s sister was promptly adopted. Without her sister Dillon became very anxious and stopped eating. There was no interest in her and her euthanasia date was getting close. And PCDR took her in. Once Dillon began obedience training, her appetite and joy in life returned. Dillon is a lovely and amazing dog with a big heart who is dying for her own human. She loves people. Loves them. Dillon has excellent obedience skills and walks fantastically on a leash. She is very engaged when walking and likes to approach strangers by sitting and hoping for the best. She is also very happy at home and delighted to hang out. Dillon does really well with dogs over 30lbs. Puppies, smaller dogs, and cats make her very nervous. They just make her too upset! We can only guess at what has caused this, but it is a small blip in a dog who is desperate to be good and quickly learns what is expected of her. Dillon so wants to bond with someone who can offer love and companionship. Dillon is in good health. She has some arthritis in her back but moves really well in spite of it! Potential adopters must fill out an application and they must be able to come to #Burbank,#CA and meet Dillon in person." To adopt Dillon, please email pcdrapps@yahoo.com to apply! ❤️ #seniordog#adoptme#california#adoptdontshop

SAN DIEGO, CA: Where oh where are the wonderful adopters of #southernCalifornia?! Miss Mia - who has been at the shelter since August - is still on the search for a home! We first met Mia over the holidays. There were so many great dogs at the shelter that day, but we were instantly smitten with Mia. This is her 3rd appearance now on SSD and, sadly, nobody has taken interest in her. It's a little discouraging. Mia is easygoing and is guaranteed to make someone very happy.

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL: Biscuit is one of those hilariously endearing elders, everything she does is cute! She always has something to say about mealtime, and when the weather cools off watch out for that extra pizazz in her step! Biscuit was a sorry sight while living at the county shelter. She looked as though her vibrant spirit was crushed. Thankfully, she was pulled by a rescue in early December and now her lively spirit is back in full force! Biscuit still needs a place to call home. She's hopeful 2019 will be her best year yet! PLEASE SHARE! 🍓💚🍓 @swamphaven rescue wrote, "Biscuit is 12 years old and recently rescued from a rural county shelter. She was picked up as a stray in Putnam County, it’s the poorest county in Florida. (Hunting with dogs is common in the south, especially in Putnam.) The first word that comes to mind when you meet Biscuit is 'endearing.' She's got the permanent puppy dog eyes and wrinkly skin and something about her makes you want to just scoop her up and tell her 'everything’s okay now.' She’s great for short walks, but really loves nosing around the backyard. She’s not quite a sun worshipper, but she does sit very regally in the afternoon sun while watching the rest of the dogs play. She gets excited and chatty when it’s time to eat and she gets the zoomies (as much as a 12 year old can) when it’s cold outside. Her fur is soft, her temperament is mild and (like they all do) she deserves nothing but the best. Biscuit is currently fostered with dogs and a cat, and most of the time she’s indifferent to everyone. Every now and then it’ll look like she notices them and tries to engage, but she’s really rather your attention over theirs. Swamp Haven does adopt nationwide, but Biscuit needs to stay in Florida. She is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment. She’s otherwise a healthy little lady. She also isn’t a fan of being in the car, it’s pretty stressful for her, so we would like to keep transportation to a minimum." To adopt Biscuit, please email adopt@swamphaven.org to apply!

It took six years to get adopted, but less than six seconds to settle in! 10 yea
It took six years to get adopted, but less than six seconds to settle in! 10 year old Cooper got ADOPTED! ☺️👔😍 If you think a long term shelter dog can't adjust quickly to domestic life...think again. After Cooper's former owner passed away, he was surrendered to the shelter. He was just four years old at the time. Cooper spent the next six years at @bornfreepetshelter in #Miami,#Florida waiting for somebody to give him another chance at love. Even though Cooper consistently remained easygoing and calm, in all those six years nobody ever chose to adopt him. (The Miami area has horrific homeless pet numbers.) Cooper was featured on SSD back in October, and after two months of coordinating logistics, he finally made his way home to New York just in time for the holidays! Cooper has settled in with his new family very quickly, it's as if he has always belonged. And we wholeheartedly believe he has... 😀 His mom @jacquelineguacc wrote, "Cooper is doing great! He was nervous when we first got him, and is still a little weary of men, but he warmed up to me right away and I can tell he knows he is safe with us and is finally home. I am so grateful that I came across your post. When I saw him I knew right away that we were going to figure out how to get him home and give him the life he deserves. He is such a sweet boy, very smart and affectionate. He is getting a long well with his new brothers and I can already tell he knows he is part of the pack. When we move into the family room to watch TV or all head upstairs to bed, he goes right in his place and waits for his blankie. He really lights up when we let him out to run in the yard, he also loves going on walks and loves riding in the car." ❤️ #seniordog#homesweethome#adopted#adoptdontshop

(near) PORTLAND, OR: How many ways can we define the perfect dog?! 11 year old Lucky is a dream! She's friendly, well behaved, and loves to lounge on the couch. She likes to take car rides, assist with errands, and go on trips to the beach - she doesn't even mind a little sand between her toes! Lucky is good during bath time, she's patient, and she's calm. We could keep this list going forever with how wonderful she is! Unfortunately, despite everything she has going for her, Lucky has been at the shelter for almost a year without any adoption prospects. Let's get this #goodgirl home! PLEASE SHARE! 💝💟💚 A shelter volunteer wrote, "There was lots of activity on Lucky's SSD posts, but no adoption applications. 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 and was a real star. She met lots of people and dogs and even took third prize for one of the costume categories. She really doesn’t need much exercise at this point, she would be great as a tag-a-long friend! 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."

KNOXVILLE, TN: 9 year old Cherry is a quirky girl in the best possible way, she's a bundle of humor! She is super friendly and loves to do silly things (think: adult humor, not puppy antics). Cherry identifies more with her quirky feline friends than she does with her canine peers, so if you have cats that's cool with Cherry! Cherry been at the shelter since last May and it's because people aren't giving her a chance or even taking a look at her. Cherry is really special and we to find her a forever home (with a sense of humor!) before she hits the one year mark at the shelter. PLEASE SHARE! 🃏 @ywacpets wrote, "Cherry has been at the shelter since 5/25/18 and has had little interest from adopters. She originally came to the shelter as a stray. Cherry is a #quirky girl -- she loves to chase her tail and bring every toy she has over to your lap! She also loves being a part of everything you do, whether it be riding in the car, folding laundry or walking around! She knows tricks like sit, stay and lay down. She hordes tennis balls, and if she loses one she will not stop hunting until she finds it! Cherry does ok with cats, but needs to be the only dog in her new home. We have done cat tests with her and had her at an employee's house who has seven cats. She should be slowly introduced to cats, but she’s gentle and almost just ignores them. She’s not dog aggressive, they just make her very uncomfortable and she does not like to share food/toys/people. But we have her in outdoor runs and she sniffs and ignores the other dogs through the fence. She is scared of small kids, so only kids 13 years and older. Cherry is heartworm negative, up to date on flea/tick and vaccines. She’s also microchipped and spayed. She is an older lady so we have her on medicine for her hips, and feel she needs to stay on something for them for the rest of her life. We require that the interested parties meet Cherry in person." To adopt Cherry, please email adoptions@young-williams.org with any questions or to apply! @ywacpets is located at 6400 Kingston Pike, #Knoxville,#TN. ❤️ #seniordog#Tennessee#adoptme#adopt#adoptdontshop
