Our thought for the weekend ...
As some of my blog friends already know, Muzzle is involved with a UK dog rescue charity called Oldies Club, which rescues and rehomes dogs aged 7+. That's how my new old brother Jasper came to live with us.
We know many of you are in the US, so Muzzle wanted me to let you know about a few similar rescue groups she has heard of.
There's Angels Among Us Animal Sanctuary - link.
There's also the Grey Muzzle Organisation - link.
Oh (and edit), knew there would be more - there's also the Old Dog Haven - link.
She's sure there are more and will link to them if she remembers/finds them. If you know of any others helping older dogs, tell us :-) Check them out for your next doggie friend/to see if you can help them :)
We love the "oldies" and wish that all dogs had lovely homes. Muzzle sometimes (often) is in tears because dogs are being put down because there aren't enough good homes. Please think about making your next dog a rescue dog. There are breeds, ages, sizes and personalities of rescue dog to suit every nice owner.
We are all rescue dogs here and we get on brilliantly, snuggle up on the sofa together and look appealingly for treats together too.
Muzzle says rescue dogs are wonderful ... have a great weekend.
Love Minnie-Moo and an emotional Muzzle
