One of my best and long time friends , Andrea, In FL sent this picture of “Shadow” …Shadow lives across the street, her owner is losing his house. He left the house over 2 weeks ago and simply left Shadow locked in the backyard alone. Animal Control has posted notice. Andrea has called all the rescues, no kills and sanctuaries in Florida that we could find on the internet, FB and Google + etc. She is willing to drive far/meet a rescue etc that will take Shadow. Everyone is full, not even the sanctuaries will consider her. AC has guessed she is 8-10 yrs old and told Andrea that once they pick her up if the owner does not claim her (heck he hasn’t come back for her in over 2 wks what are the chances he will claim her!) w/in 10 days they will put her down because she is elderly! Andrea has fattened her up and visits her several times a day, she has provided Shadow with food, water , shelter and attention since discovering her. Andrea’s pre teen daughter often accompanies her. Both state that Shadow is sweet and loving, not high energy but calm. Shadow often is happy to just be petted, talked to or walk (not run!) around the yard with them.
Every time they leave her, Shadow cries. Andrea has fallen in love with her too and is heartbroken every day when she makes her final trek back home across the street for the night. Andrea cannot take Shadow because she has several pets including dogs that will not accept Shadow. She does not have the space to create a separate living area for Shadow. AC knows she has been tending to Shadow and it almost seems like they are dragging their feet (thankfully!) to pick her up and bring her into their kill shelter.
Can you please do me a favor, if you live in FL, or have friends and/or family in FL and cross post and share this in hopes of finding this elderly lady a home where she can get the love and affection she gives ? Andrea is willing to offer a sponsorship for any rescue/sanctuary that comes forward.
