This past Friday we said goodbye to our sweet senior girl, Cassie. Her story, as told by Cassie’s foster, Karen, is in the link below and like everything she did for Cassie, she put her whole heart into it and it’s a wonderful tribute.
At 14years old, Cassie was the oldest dogs that ALR had ever rescued, but her owner was in such a bind and her story was so sad, we felt compelled to take her into the program. The first person I called was Karen and had she not agreed to foster, I’m not sure we would’ve been able to help. I knew that she would be in good hands and Karen left no stone unturned in her quest to give Cassie the best that life had to offer, even spending her own money to try some alternative ways, like acupuncture, to make her comfortable. Cassie lived almost another 2 years at Karen’s house and I’m betting they were the best years of her life.
