15-year-old Millie arrived at the Animal Rescue League, grieving and in need of medical care. Her owner had just passed away and she had been alone inside the home for some time, waiting for help to arrive. As our medical team gently checked her over, her head drooped and her eyes stared blankly ahead.

She was overwhelmed with sadness.

We found that Millie’s teeth were causing her a great deal of pain and she’d need to have nearly all of them pulled. Her eyes were cloudy, indicating she may have limited vision. She needed treatment for fleas, grooming to remove old mats, and additional medical tests to determine if she had any other special needs.

While some organizations are unable to help animals like this because of their age or medical needs, we welcomed Millie with open arms.

Senior pets like Millie often need extra medical care — and extra love — to get them ready for adoption and ensure they find a loving home. Your donation today will give Millie and other pets like her all the loving care and time they need to heal and begin a new life.
