Our Senior Forever Fosters
Meet our Forever Fosters. These guys and gals stay behind the scenes since they are unadoptable due to medical issues. They live with their foster families so that they can live out their golden days with a family that can care for their special needs while we cover all of their needs financially. Sponsoring a forever foster is a great way to help the rescue even if your not able to foster or adopt.
This little beauty was found dumped in a motel in NE, then taken to a shelter where her time was up over three years ago now.
She has since found her way to SDAR where she has now turned 14 and will live out her golden years with her foster.
JJ has taught us a lot about how age is just a number, she has the heart of a 2 year old. She has some arthritis in her back legs but that doesn't even slow her down.
She loves to be with people and be loved on.As of today September 16th, 2021 JJ is still thriving with her foster though she is starting to slow down with her age. She enjoys just lounging around now there is no way to know how much time this girl has left but shes living her best life until the end JJ is currently estimated to be around 14 year old.
Dolly came from a high kill shelter in TX the day she was going to be euthanized. When we stepped in to save this girl we were told she was 3 years old and not disclosed any medical issues as we had to have help getting her out of the shelter.
Upon arriving out of the shelter we learned that she for a fact is not 3 years old we were also not disclosed about the multiple tumors all over this poor girls body but they did not stop us from saving this poor girls life as she clearly deserves more than her past humans have ever given her.
We currently think that Dolly is around 12 years old and to boot not only her physical medical issues we have learned she is also heart worm positive as well. We are going to do our best to make the rest of this girls story a happy one but we truly need help with all of her medical issues.
With her current conditions we will know more in the coming days as she is evaluated by our vets to see what the best course of treatments will be. The mammary tumor alone currently weights about 5-8 lbs which is first concern and if it is malignant or not.
Do not let her conditions fool you this has not broken her Dolly is the sweetest most loving girl you will met. She is good with other dogs and curious about cats but so far doing fine with cats in the home. She loves crashing on the couch and going on car rides. She truly just desires to be loved which we will make sure she gets all the love she truly deserves!
As of today September 16th 2021 Dolly is still living her best life. She is starting to slow down from her heart worms and her tumors starting to grow back but she still has all of her spunk. We know we are on borrowed time with this girl as she ages but she still has a lot of love to give in days to come.
Anastasia is the sweetest senior girl you will ever meet! She landed yesterday (literally) from Hobbs NM before being Euthanized. When Anastasia landed we did not know the medical problems we would be getting into. We though she would just need her arthritis treated and spayed.
Yesterday, September 15th 2021, she was diagnosed with a tumor in her stomach that is not removable. We took her to the vet originally to be checked for spay and because we thought she suffered from a nasty bug bite of some kind because her leg started swelling and the swelling was going in to her chest so we treated her as a bug bite because she wasn't the first this week with the same symptoms. From that diagnosis her symptoms just kept getting worst.
Yesterday we received the worst news that we weren't expecting. We have now decided that Anastasia will stay with her foster family to lesson her stress of adoption with her age and let her live the best life she can as we don't know how long we have left with her but we are going to make it her best life until we can't.
