Senor Chow Fletcher Needs a Home

It always breaks my heart to see senior dogs dumped at shelters. After giving years and years of their loyalty, they are discarded like trash to die alone in a concrete run. With the economy in crisis, shelters are seeing more and more pets abandoned or turned-in when families lose their homes. Maybe this is what happened to this poor senior guy, Fletcher.

Fletcher A0953629 is a senior male Chow-Chow mix. He's currently located at the City of Los Angeles West LA Animal Shelter in Los Angeles, California. While the shelter works hard to find homes for all pets coming in through its doors, there simply are not enough homes for them all. Sadly, senior dogs like Fletcher are often overlooked by people looking to adopt.

If you are thinking about adopting a dog, please consider a senior dog. Seniors are often a better match for families than a puppy or young dog. Plus, you know you are helping a dog that needs your help the most, at a time in his life when he deserves a nice warm bed and a gentle hand.

If you are interested in adopting Fletcher A0953629, or know of a rescue group that has room for him, please contact the City of Los Angeles West LA Animal Shelter immediately. Fletcher's time is not unlimited!
