Seeing any animal without a home to call their own always breaks my heart, but seeing a sweet, senior dog facing his golden years spent in a shelter is too much for me to bear.

If my home wasn't already at the limit of fur babies to love, I would scoop sweet Samson up in a second. I'm hoping one of you will now swoop in as Samson's hero.

Amber Pinnon, Adoption & Volunteer Program Coordinator at Winnebago County Animal Services says;

Meet Samson. At 12 years old, he would rather spend his time basking on a sun-stained porch than in a cold kennel. Samson is a very laid back guy who is looking for someone to give him a comfy retired life with lots of affection and love. Could you provide the home this older guy deserves?

Samson may be 12 years old, but his health is good and he has several years worth of love to give! Senior dogs are often over looked at animal shelters, and I don't want you to make that same mistake today. Samson's adoption fee is reduced in an effort to find his perfect forever home soon.
