Inseparable sisters hope to finally find new family for Father’s Day
Dogs Trust Shrewsbury is hoping to find elderly sisters a new home in time for Father’s Day
Staff at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury are hoping two inseparable sisters who have never been apart and have found themselves homeless at the grand old age of 13, will find a new family in time for Father’s Day on Sunday (18 June).
Jack Russells Molly and Polly are devoted to each other and have lived together since the day they were born.
Sadly, the canine companions found themselves having to leave behind everything they’ve ever known due to a change in their owner’s family circumstances. They arrived at Dogs Trust back in March and the team thought they’d find a new home at the double - but sadly that hasn’t been the case.
Louise Campbell, Manager at the Telford rehoming centre said:
“We always like to think a dog is for life but sometimes through nobody’s fault, it just can’t be and dogs find themselves without a home.
“It’s particularly sad when older dogs like Molly and Polly come to us. They are a perfect pair and the best of friends and have been keeping each other company. We can’t believe nobody has fallen in love with them yet.”
The team think the two-some might be being overlooked because they are Old Age Pooches, but they say there are lots of advantages to having an older dog, including the fact that they are often calmer and need less exercise than younger dogs, and although these two are still full of fun they like to sit back and rest their paws too.
“Older dogs often wait a lot longer to find their special someone. It’s such a shame and these two will make loving, loyal companions.
“They can live with older children so if after months of waiting they were to finally find themselves at the heart of a forever family on Father’s Day when the love of family is celebrated, that would be really wonderful.”
