Molly Pitcher had some sad days recently. Her 80 year old dad passed away and his kids came into the home, put Molly Pitcher's mom in a senior home and gave away her two doggie companions. That left her with less than zero. The family members planned to just have Molly Pitcher put down because "she is old" but a kind rescuer saved her just in time. She reached out to us for help and we were grateful to have an empty dog bed available.
She is 12 years old and about 25 lbs.
Molly Pitcher was severely depressed when she first came to us. She has since settled in, found her happy and is a waggy tail girl again.
She generally gets along with other dogs but thinks bothering cats is fun. Molly has a hard time going up stairs but loves to be carried.
Molly Pitcher has a large inoperable tumor on her backend. It may or may not limit her time remaining with us, we don't know. She's on medication for the days where she feels a little under the weather.
She can be reactive at times and has food guarding issues that we are working on. For this reason, we are looking for an experienced, adult home for her where she may live out her time, just being loved and hugged and spoiled.

APPLY TO ADOPT
Interested in adopting one of our senior dogs?
It's easy! First, make note of the dog's name and then move on to the online adoption application.
After your application is approved, we will coordinate a time for a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.
If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.
After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!
