Rescued from the Downey, Los Angeles Shelter
Emma was rescued from the Downey, Los Angeles shelter in January 2019. We originally thought she was maybe between 8 and 10 years old, and seeing how gentle and affectionate she was, we were hoping she would be adopted by a nice family looking for an older adult or senior dog.
However, as we spent more time learning about Emma and her needs, the more health issues arose. First, we learned she was completely deaf. Then, was learned she was incontinent (probably from spending her whole life as an outdoor dog and never learning to be house-trained).
We then realized it was likely that Emma was most likely closer to being 12 or older, and all of these small issues were just par for the course when it comes to a senior dog.
We rely 100% on all of our support in the form of small donations. We run on $5 donations and volunteers! Please consider donating just $5 so we can get on top of our mounting medical bills and rescue more dogs in need!
