Senior Dog Brought To Vet To Be Euthanized, Family Says They No More Want To Care For

It was Melissa’s dream to save dogs, a 34-year-old woman who lives on 11 acres of land in Conyers, GA, who started Old Dog Home, a rescue group. She takes dogs who are in need of some TLC.

She wrote a post on Facebook that she takes the dogs that are too sick or too old into her home, and the dogs that can be rehabilitated and healed, she does what she can to find forever homes for them.

She was recently contacted by a veterinarian partner of her rescue group about an elderly dog whose owner wanted her to be euthanized because he no longer wanted to care for her. Actually, the dog’s health was good and she was really nice, so, they refused to euthanize her.

But Melissa could not take the dog into her care as her group is full. Holly, the dog who is about 11 years old, was shuffled from home to home after the death of her original owner.

The last owners of Holly, who already have 2 dogs, did not want her because she peed on the floor. Despite that, the dog was in good shape, and the reason why she peed a lot was that she had a yeast infection, according to the vet.

Melissa was able to make Holly feel relaxed, and she took her into her care. Until she is fully recovered, she will take care of her and medicate her. She will then find her a forever home. Thanks Melissa.
