The Heavens Rejoice!
Return our Sun, Rufus J.
The Foxiest One.
With more than 100 pet therapy hours at nursing homes under his collar, Rufus had so many friends awaiting him on the other side of the rainbow bridge it made my heart sing. Rufus will always be remembered at the Sanctuary for being our first official animal assisted therapy provider.
Not only was he a consummate professional, he was a perfect example of why senior dog companionship is not only a good choice for many who desire a canine companion, but a better choice. He adjusted quickly to his new environment, was very easy to care for, and only peed in the house in acts of protest or to communicate when he was mad about something (in each case I must say that he was justified).
We are sadden by the loss of our friend, but we take joy in the memories, which only by grace were we able to make. Thank you to the Nevada Humane Society for saving Rufus from euthanasia at the shelter in California and giving our community the opportunity to benefit from his unique brand of unconditional love .
A very big thank you goes out to Henry and Judy from Homeward Bound Veterinary Services. They provide compassionate, in-home care for everything from wellness exams to end of life care for all of your four legged friends. I appreciated how patient and understanding they were during a very emotional time for us.
