Saving some of the best for the very end of Adopt a Senior Pet Month, here is Sundae (A14469026). She was brought to Philadelphia’s ACCT shelter after being found all alone in an abandoned house. An older girl at about 10-12 years old, Sundae still has pep to spare, with a lovely brindle coat and bright eyes that shower her companions with attention and affection. Sundae has a little stiffness in her joints (don’t we all?) that could use some supplementing with glucosamine and/or fish oil but is otherwise in perfect physical condition and has plenty of energy for play and cuddling.
Sundae did very well in her behavioral evaluations and is gentle with treats. She didn’t pay the cats any mind and could probably live just fine with felines that she meets properly. Sundae does well with all kinds of dogs but is at an age where serious tumbling is probably not her thing. A companion would be great, though, so bring any household dogs down to the shelter to meet her with the family. Sundae is a sweet, healthy, calmer dog with years of love to give to a lucky home.
This is really no time for this poor girl to be stuck at the shelter, especially with what must have been a scary time out in the world by herself. She would be a great addition to any adoptive home or a super easy first foster. For more information about how you can help save Sundae or to set up a meet, please email her volunteer friend Erin at email@example.com. You can also call the shelter (267-385-3800) for details or head down to 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue, Philadelphia, PA and meet her for yourself. Adoption hours are 1-8 Monday through Friday and 10-5 on weekends. Foster hours are 9 am to 6 pm, seven days a week.
