We can do more: Blind and deaf 12-year-old senior needs out of shelter


Poor little Nicky; she is on a senior alert. Downey Animal Care Center shelter volunteers Sal Valdepena and Linda Chute worry about the 12-year-old senior who has been at the shelter since July 9. 

Quite sure Nicky is blind and deaf, the pint sized pooch only weighs 11 pounds and has a  heart murmur (1-2/6) The shelter, although volunteers and staff try to make this difficult situation as pleasant as they can for this little pooch, Nicky just doesn’t seem to be able to get comfortable. She paces, shakes and has not been eating well lately. Her tiny stiff legs lack regular exercise; a shelter cage is not a proper home for Nicky.

Share little Nicky’s plight with friends, family and approved rescue organizations. Doesn’t this little elder gal deserve more than this? We can do better and get her into the right loving home where the rest of her days will be filled with sunlight and love. Follow Nicky’s Facebook page here.
