Memphis, TN – Being a homeless dog is tough. Being a homeless senior dog is tougher. And being an animal shelter trying to find all of the homeless pets new homes can sometimes be overwhelming.
Shelters do their utmost to find creative ways to draw attention to the animals in their care and recently, the Memphis Animal Services facility decided to throw a “Senior Prom” for the older dogs in their care.
The dogs were “glammed” up to look their best on the day of the big event.
And there was a photo area set up for adoptions…but nobody found a home.
The disappointed staff said:
Our animal shelter threw a Senior Prom adoption event to shine a spotlight on our senior pets. We can’t understand why none of our featured senior pets got adopted! Give a senior a chance 💙
All dogs deserve a home, not just puppies and adolescent dogs. Please consider adding a mature pet to your home!
