From Humane Society of Durham Region:
Phoenix is now stable enough to be placed into a foster home, we have chosen a really wonderful foster home for him and he will go home Wednesday, Sept 9, 3009!
The foster parents are prepared to care for him until the end at which point with consultations with the foster home and veterinarians who are treating him will make the decision when it is the right time.
There is nothing more noble than giving a terminally ill dog a home. The financial costs may be high but more significantly, giving one's heart over to a life so fleeting must surely be the essence of charity.
Thanks to all the people who have taken in these battered, sick or old dogs who otherwise would never have experienced being welcomed into the arms of a good family and who never would have known a day of kindness. There may be no such thing as a good death but at least through the grace of these good people, these dogs are given a few moments of a good life.
