4/13/17: KATIE is looking for a foster home, also available for adoption. Part of OPERATION FOSTER BOUND! 9 years old, approx 60 lbs, good with kids and dogs.
Katie lived in a good home, once upon a time. She was loved. Then, things took a turn. Her elderly owner developed dementia and unable to care for Katie. Sean Casey Animal Rescue took her in, to give her a new start.
As part of Operation Foster Bound, we at Foster Dogs want Katie to find a wonderful foster home where she can gain some weight, have lots of TLC, and heal emotionally and physically. No dog deserves to be in the shelter, let alone a 9-year-old lady.
Her hind legs are weak, so she does not need long walks or major exercise, just leisurely strolls, and perhaps time sitting outside enjoying the sunshine on a park bench (that’s the life!).
We know her forever family is out there, but in the meantime let’s get her into a nice foster home so she can feel – and look – excellent.
Here’s what her new friends @brooklyndogtime had to say about their visit with Katie: She’s a sweet and gentle old girl. Katie is a great walker and loves to sniff as she wanders. She’s happy to lay in bed or show you her tricks! Katie knows the commands sit, paw, come and down! (Smart girl). This easy-going senior gal is good with other dogs and with kids.
Want to bring home this special dog?
Through Operation Foster Bound, Katie has received a $250 donation to her saviors Sean Casey Animal Rescue, and we will donate ANOTHER $250 once she finds her forever home. We will ensure that she receives training if needed, and will provide perks (bed, harness, food) once she finds a foster home!

Things to keep in mind: $300 adoption fee applies if you plan to adopt, unless otherwise stated (Foster caretakers must pay adoption fee if they choose to adopt). You may be required to complete a foster/adoption application prior to meeting the dog. Please check with your landlord about your building’s pet policy and of course talk to your roommates. The dog is the legal property of the rescue organization until an adoption contract is signed.
