Senior girl Roxie was a stray who found herself in an overcrowded shelter in North Carolina. Petey and Furends stepped in to transport her to Washington D.C. in hopes that greater exposure may help her chances of being adopted.
Petey and Furends uses grant money from Grey Muzzle for a program called Project SoAR (Seniors on Amazing Retirements). This program helps senior dogs receive medical care and treatment that help remove barriers to adoption.
When Roxie arrived, she had a suspicious-looking bump on her leg that needed to be tested. Luckily, it was benign, and the medical team promptly removed it to improve Roxie's mobility. She was able to recover in a loving foster home while Petey and Furends worked on finding her a family of her own.
It didn't take long for Roxie's new dad to fall in love with her sweet disposition! He had previously opened his home to a dog from Petey and Furends and was eager to find another senior to love and care for. Roxie is currently living her best life in a warm, comfortable home. Her new dad is an artist and looks forward to painting many special portraits of this lovely girl, who he calls "an absolute angel".
