What a great story. Old Dog House, located in Cripple Creek, CO, provide homes to senior dogs – homeless senior dogs that otherwise would have been euthanized.
Pam Carr and Sindy Andersen started Old Dog House in 2004. Since then, the non-profit have provided homes for more than 140 dogs averaging ten yeas of age when they take them in. On average, the dogs have lived another three years in their care.
“But many, nurtured and given the medical care they need, defy all odds. Charlie, who is afflicted with lupus, has been with them for seven years and is now 17.
And there’s Roxie, a redbone hound mix, taken in by the duo at age 10 after being found in an abandoned building in Steamboat Springs, 200 miles away. They soon learned Roxie had bone cancer, had the bad leg amputated and vowed to love her for the 12 months she probably had left.
Two years later, Roxie is doing fine.
“They’re happy and loved,” says Andersen of the pack, including Mollie the cocker spaniel, 16, whose owner died and no one wanted her; and Daisy, 15, a terrier whose homeless owner gave her to a friend who chained her up near a cardboard box for shelter for the year he had her.”
