TO BE KILLED – 1/23/2019
FRANCIS is so nervous at the shelter, & this poor sweet #seniordog desperately needs help finding a special family to love her. You have only to look into her sad eyes to see that life has not been good to dear Francis. A senior at 8 years old, she had hoped for a different life, a better life, a life where she would be loved and kept safe always. Instead she was ABANDONED in an empty apartment, no food, no water, no one to comfort her. What went through her poor mind as she sat there, day after day, waiting for the person who was never going to return for her?
She is now at the #shelter , shaking, trembling, overwhelmed & alone. There she sits, so lonely, & not daring to hope for a #miracle.. ☹ .
Please won’t you consider saving this gentle lady’s life & showing her (finally) what it means to be loved? As a staff member writes: “Beautiful Francis will catch your attention with her soft eyes & small stature, but this shy gal likes to go at her own pace. Francis is an older lady & knows what she likes; treats! #Food is the way to her heart, &Francis would love to find a quiet place to decompress & learn to love again.
If you are an experienced #foster or #adopter in an ADULT ONLY home & can give Francis a safe place to land, hurry .It is recommended she be an ONLY #PET at this time. .
