There is a section on the Homeward Pet Adoption Center website called “Overlooked Animals”—and it means exactly what it says. Got a bit emotional after hanging this painting of Bonnie, a senior dog—she’s 10–up for adoption, at Homeward Pet. While she gets plenty of love and care at the shelter, a senior dog should have a quiet, comfortable home—a family to snuggle and snooze with on the couch.
It takes an extra special person with a wide open heart to adopt an older animal like this. I never know if these paintings bring the extra attention to these animals, but it’s my hope they do.
Adopt Bonnie and take home her portrait as well. https://www.homewardpet.org/overlooked/
