When she began a rescue called Old Dog Home to help her fulfill her dream of saving old canines looking for some TLC, she never ever could have imagined just how much the organization would certainly grow.
” For the dogs that come to us and can be restored and adopted out, we’re going to do so. We’ll do whatever we can to give them a possibility at love and a family for their last years,” Melissa explained on Facebook. “For those that are too old or also ill, we’ll be their family. They’ll live right here until its their time to go, and when they do go to paradise.”
Melissa simply got a distressing phone call from Old Dog Home’s vet companion, who informed her that a client had brought in his elderly canine to be euthanized because he “didn’t wish to look after her anymore.””.
Although Old Dog Home is full, Melissa couldn’t resist taking the canine, now named Holly, right into her home. Holly is around 10-12 years old and is as sweet as can be. After her original owner passed away she go shuffled from house to home till she ended up with her current family.
They really did not want her anymore since they already had two various other dogs, and they said Holly peed on the floor all the time, and that the grandkids weren’t interested in her.
” I don’t such as to pick on kids, however the granddaughter took a look at me and shrugged– ‘We just do not really like her. We like our various other dogs much better.’ Meanwhile, the dog stood there, wagging and wagging and wagging her tail,” Melissa composed.
” My real calling in life is to show individuals that “old” doesn’t suggest “dead” … Old dogs still have life and love left to provide,” Melissa composed. “They are incredibly resilient and forgiving, and they deserve to have a possibility at a Forever Family just as much as any younger dog does.”.
When the time is right, and Holly is healed both physically and emotionally, Melissa will certainly find a loving home for Holly, where she will certainly be put with treatment and reach be spoiled and loved for the rest of her life.
” And then I will certainly have one more open spot, and I’ll save another old abandoned canine that nobody wanted,” Melissa continued. “That’s the desire, folks. That’s the dream!”.
