At 11 Years Old, This Spunky Senior Just Needs a Lap to Land On
There's nothing more heartbreaking to me than senior dogs who are stuck in a shelter.
This is Rello. Rello is 11 years old and just wants one thing out of his life: a comfy lap to take naps on.
This sleepy guy could barely keep his eyes open this morning.
The SPCA of SW Michigan does an incredible job providing a temporary home for animals who would, otherwise, be homeless. But, it's still not a home. And this old man deserves all the pampering, all the comfort and all the spoiling you can give. It makes a huge difference. Don't believe me? Check out the before and after photos for another senior dog we recently had on our show for Dog Days:
Despite my heartbreak at seeing older dogs in shelters, Rello is quite spunky for his 11 years of age. He hopped onto Katie's lap without issue, trotted around with joy towards anyone who was willing to give him attention and happily jumped up to say hello to me.
Rello is up to date on shots and ready to be adopted today at the SPCA of SW Michigan. If you're interested you're more than welcome to stop by the shelter or find more information online.
Keep in mind, whether you're looking to adopt Rello or another dog, there's a Bissel Empty the Shelter Event this weekend. Meaning, adoption fees are only $25. The event only lasts through Saturday (7/10) so don't wait if you'd like to take advantage of the discounted rate while also providing a loving home for a new family memeber.
As well, the SPCA of SW Michigan is always looking for help either with volunteering, where you can work the front desk, help with I.T., walk dogs and more, or with fostering. Fostering animals, I've heard, is incredibly rewarding. You're helping these animals become more adoptable and you'll never have to worry about the cost of medical bills or food.
