When a senior citizen started to need more help to survive, she had to let go of some of the things she loved about her life. She lost her home and went into a nursing facility. But even that was not the worst of it. By far the hardest thing the senior citizen had to let go of was caring for her beloved pet dog.
Because time was running out for her, she wanted her beloved dog to find a new home. The worst thing that could happen would be for the dog to be stuck in the animal shelter for weeks or months without any love and then end up in line for euthanization.
That’s why this senior citizen wrote a long letter urging the facility to do their best to find her dog a home.
“Dear Stray Rescue, I am writing you ’cause I need you to take my dog, Shell…I’ve been fighting cancer for a few months and if you’re reading this, I lost my battle. I need for my baby girl to be taken care of in a home… In these days, all I do is worry about what’s going to happen to her. I love this girl, she is my daughter.”
“Shell is now with us, safe and sound in our Executive Director Cassady’s office. She is scared, but we will shower her with so much love. If someone has been lonely and would like to give Shell a home, with plenty of patience and understanding, please fill out an application.”
Just two days after Stray Rescue shared their plea, someone came forward and offered Shell a forever home. It was certainly a miracle that no one expected to happen that fast.
The rescue organization wrote on Facebook, “we have a happy ending to Shell’s tragic story.”
A woman saw the news and came running to save Shell from her horrible fate.
The woman went through the necessary steps, paid her dues, and adopted Shell. She took her home the next morning.
“She says Shell is already running the house, and that they are inseparable. We are honored to have fulfilled the final wish of her Mom, who is no longer with us. We promise she will be spoiled for the rest of her life.”
