2 Little Seniors Surrendered to the Shelter when their Owner Died

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

Please welcome Jojo and Bobby, two little seniors who were surrendered to Union County Animal Control when their owner died. They’re scared & confused, but very sweet and affectionate. They’re 8 years old & have been together their whole lives, so we’d love to keep them together. Unfortunately for them, owner surrenders are the first to be euthanized when the shelter gets full. The small, rural shelter was completely full, so they were first in line on the urgent list.

These sweet boys are now safe with Florida Urgent Rescue, thanks to a lot of people scrambling behind the scenes to save them. Susan Merrill networked them, with a lot of help and a lot of shares. Rhonda Booker offered to foster them, thanks to an intro from Angie Filipsic. Gab Riele made the trip to the shelter to transport them and give them their freedom ride.

They will be available for adoption together once we get them vetted. They are both heartworm negative and up to date on vaccinations. Jojo has cloudy eyes and a bad case of flea dermatitis, and both boys need to be neutered. Welcome to FUR, sweet boys!

𝗙𝗨𝗥 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗛𝗟𝗬 𝗚𝗜𝗩𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗚𝗥𝗔𝗠 Sick and injured animals need help fast. Byrdie and Kai had major surgeries yesterday. Fin had heart surgery at UF the day before. Spartacus, another one of our paralyzed dogs from a cruelty case, was in the ER with an unknown allergic reaction. Last week, Marcus was surrendered to a shelter in critical condition, hours away from death, and he was hospitalized.

Every donation helps, but Monthly donors give us flexibility to respond immediately when there is an emergency. When there is a hoarding case or a hurricane, a dog with a gunshot wound or a cruelty case, we have to act quickly. We don't have time to do a fundraiser, and wait for those funds to get to us. Your monthly donation can help us save lives again and again.
