Senior dogs surrendered for being too ‘old and smelly’



Two senior dogs, 10 years of age, were surrendered by their owner who told shelter staff that they were too “old and smelly.” The Humane Animal Treatment Society posted photos of the senior dogs on Facebook Tuesday morning and described the heartbreaking situation:

She said she didn’t want us because we were “old and smelly.” But, what do you expect? She forced us to live our entire lives outside. She never showed us any love. Since our young puppy days all I knew was my sister, Marie, and the outdoors.

Suddenly she put us in the back of her truck to get rid of us. She wouldn’t even let us inside. She threw us in a crate in the truck bed anddrove off. For 10 years, she kept us outside and now we are no longer wanted. “Old and smelly”…

A special home is needed

These senior dogs (Donnie and Marie) are in need of a special new home – a home where they will be loved and taken care of properly. A home with an owner who is patient and kind. A home where they can come inside and learn what it is like to be part of a family.
