When Brandon Stanton first saw Susie on the street, she belonged to someone else. But Stanton featured her on his popular website, Humans of New York, calling her “the greatest dog in New York.” Susie’s owner saw the photo, and asked Stanton if he’d like to adopt the 13-year-old.
This got Stanton thinking about the plight of older dogs who need new homes. So he launched a Facebook page called Susie’s Senior Dogs to help connect dog lovers who have room for an elderly pet with those older dogs who need love in their final years.
It’s a wonderful concept and helps these dogs end their lives in comfort and happiness, surrounded by love.
