Elderly or sick dogs regularly are the least likely to be adopted; people constantly reject them because they believe that it is not worth having an animal that involves a lot of effort and care.
The worst of all is that in animal shelters, many families abandon their elderly dogs because they consider them too much responsibility or simply no longer love them; all the years of happiness that those tenderloins gave them, it seems they don’t care at all.
Someone wanted to give them a second chance
Chris and Mariesa Hughes, aware of this situation, have created a non-governmental organization (NGO) called The Mr. Mo Project in honor of their old dog Mo, who passed away a few years ago. Their main purpose is to care for elderly or disabled dogs and then give them up for adoption, and currently, they have 20 dogs with these conditions under their care.
They want their stay to be as comfortable as possible
This couple with residence in New York, United States, has spent more than 55 thousand dollars in conditioning their house so that these old people have a comfortable stay, a dignified life and, of course, a lot of love.
They bought a $ 30,000 hydrotherapy pool to help them exercise or rehab, and they also bought a 5,000 king-sized bed so everyone could sleep together.
It has not been the biggest expense
The strongest monthly expense is undoubtedly veterinary care, and there is always a bill to pay. However, Chris and Mariesa have one thing very clear: they will help as much as they can to the dogs in need, no matter the sacrifices they have to make.
We try to raise as much money as we can, but eventually, if one of the dogs needs a $ 20,000 treatment, we will pay for it with credit cards and worry later. There is always a vet bill to pay, but we have learned to handle it, and while it is stressful, it is totally worth it.
