Senior Spaniel Rescue group helps older dogs find homes

Senior Spaniel Rescue group helps older dogs find homes

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It is heartbreaking when a pet has to be put down and many times they are older animals that no one wants to adopt.

Mary Sanders decided that was unacceptable.

Sanders is the president of the Senior Spaniel Rescue in Las Vegas. The group was started seven years ago when Sanders and other animal lovers started to see a pattern.

They noticed that older animals were being dropped off because they often required more care or their owners simply became bored with them.

However, many of the dogs they saw had years of life left in them.

So, they started the group to help those dogs.

Members now foster the dogs until new homes can be found.
