Mary Jane

Needs A Home!
Barked: Wed Jun 13, '12 7:02pm PST 
Mary lives at the Porter County Animal Shelter in Valparaiso, Indiana. She is seven years old and has cancer. She may only live for a few more months or may live for a few more years. Because of her age and the severity of the cancer, the shelter has decided not to treat the cancer. Mary, however, still acts like a playful, happy dog who loves life despite living in a shelter. A simple stuffed animal is enough to brighten her day. Please keep Mary in your heart and share her to as many people/rescues as possible. She doesn't deserve to spend her last days in a shelter. I would take her, but Mary does not do well with other pets. Here is her petfinder page and the shelter's contact info: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail /23209536
