Shelter’s Longest Resident, Senior Dog Lila, Dreams Of A Home For Christmas

A senior dog has the unfortunate designation as the “longest resident” at the Vanderburgh Humane Society in Indiana. The 11-year-old dog, named Lila, is dreaming of a real home for the holidays.

On Wednesday, the shelter posted a plea for a home on Lila’s behalf, writing:

Longtime resident Lila is still hoping to be home for the holidays ❤️
Hi, I’m Lila! You may have noticed my grey muzzle. I just celebrated my 11th birthday here at the VHS, but I don’t act a day over 1! My favorite volunteer, James, takes me for a run every day through the Mutt’s Morning Out program, so I’m in great shape!

According to the shelter, Lila has been waiting at their facility since October…but she has very little adoption interest from the people who come to the shelter to visit.

The shelter said that Lila loves people and “respectful dogs.” You can help make Lila’s dreams of a real home possible by sharing her adoption information. Networking saves lives!
