A NEW VIEW OF SOME OLD DOGS
Who needs to teach an old dog new tricks when said dog can loaf around and become internet famous?
As more people turn to the web while practising social distancing at home, a sanctuary for senior dogs is livestreaming its canines — and raising awareness about the traditionally hard-to-adopt group.
“Here in the cosy Gathering Room, the mature and loving senior dogs of Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary eat their meals, play and snuggle together,” the sanctuary says on its webcam’s website, hosted on explore.org.
The Tennessee sanctuary also has a network of people willing to provide foster care for its canines.
Mature dogs often aren’t adopted because of their shorter life spans and high medical costs.
