About a month ago, Old Dog Haven—an incredible nonprofit organization in western Washington that rescues senior dogs who are losing their homes or are already in shelters—put out an urgent call for a “final refuge” foster family for a 14-year-old Shepherd, with the offer of paying all expenses for her care. Jasmine had lived outside for years and then her family actually moved away and left the deaf and arthritic senior on the property, only returning occasionally. A neighbor gave her food and water.
A man with a 16-year old Lab stepped up and agreed to bring Jasmine into his family. Read the story and see a very touching photo of Jasmine and her new foster dad’s first meeting, here.
This past Sunday, ODH provided the awesome photo above and this update on Facebook:
“Remember Jasmine who was abandoned and tied to a doghouse on Whidbey? Her foster dad is adopting her and she is doing great with her new friend Jazzy. Happy endings like this make it worth all the effort from everyone! That is Jasmine on the right : )”
When my grandmother’s sister would fly from Montana to California to visit her, they loved to sit around the house, drinking tea and chatting it up. I totally get that feeling from these two sweet senior sisters! Cheers, ladies!
