Seniors deserve our respect

It's so sad to see so many older dogs ending up at the home. Recently we've taken in a record number of mature dogs that are clearly bewildered as to why they are with us - and to be honest so are we. Surely they deserve to be spoilt at this time of their life and whilst we do our best to make them feel as comfortable as possible in their new surrounds they really do deserve to be in a loving home.

Goldie needs you!

Our senior dogs are perfect companions for the seniors in our community. They require less exercise and their personalities are fully developed so you know exactly what you're getting.

Goldie, pictured, is a sad example. She was found by the rangers wandering on an oval in East Fremantle on June 14. We think she's about 15-years-old and is a Shepherd X Collie.

When she arrived at the Home she had a very bad flea infestation but we have treated her for this and with lots of love and care she is now a clean dog looking for a loving home.

Considering we suspect she was dumped by her previous owners, she is a very cheerful girl and seems to like other dogs. We are desperate to find a foster home for this lovely old lady, to make sure her next few weeks are better than her last few weeks. If you can help, please call 08 9381 8166.

  • I agree. I have recently adopted a 7 year old terrier X from the RSPCA and she's gorgeous and a wonderful companion for my 14 year old Shih-tsu male X who was adopted 8 years ago from the Lost Dogs home in North Melbourne when he was 6 1/2 years old. (Unfortunately his female partner had to be put down because of adv cancer and heart failure at 12 years).

    Both of them are happy and Moochie the Terrier has given Monte the Shih-tsu a new and active lease of life. Both of them are happy to be here.

  • We totally agree with your comment Jacki and the great news is Goldie has now been adopted by the most loving, caring lady ever and we can guarantee she is now being treated as she deserves - like a queen!

  • How could anyone do that to a dog who has given them so much for so many years. Have they no heart? She is not a piece of furniture that you throw out when it's getting old and worn. She must be so bewildered. I don't think people realise dogs have memories, emotions and souls. I wish I lived in WA (I'm in Tas) because if I did I'd take her in...
