Sadly, things don't always end so well for older animals like Mojo and Max - many of whom never wind up finding the love of a family again in their Golden years. Fortunately, there are folks out there who understand that homeless senior pets need more of a lifeline than their younger counterparts.
"Thanks to the very big hearts of the people who come there to adopt, they find new homes," Chris told The Dodo. "We have one gentleman, in fact, whose only adoption requirement is that the dog he gets is the oldest one at the shelter. He's done this twice that I am aware of. We just had a young couple adopt a 17-year-old dog. You see the best and the worst of human behavior at a public animal shelter; we see much more good than bad, however."
