SENIORS FOR SENIORS PROGRAM
ONE BY ONE ...
One by One, they pass by my cage, Too old, too worn, too broken, no way. Way
past his time, he can't run and play. Then they shake their heads slowly and
go on their way.
A little old man, arthritic and sore, It seems I am not wanted anymore. I once
had a home, I once had a bed, A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail. Who wants a dog so old and
My family decided I didn't belong, I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head, Can't justify how they left me for
dead. Now I sit in this cage, where day after day, The younger dogs get
When I had almost come to the end of my rope, You saw my face, and I finally
had hope. You saw through the grey, and the legs bent with age, And felt I still
had life beyond this cage. You took me home, gave me food and a bed, And
shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low, You love me so dearly, you want
me to know. I may have lived most of my life with another, But you outshine
them with a love so much stronger. And I promise to return all the love I can
give, To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for years, We will share many smiles, you will
no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave, I know you will cry
and your heart, it will grieve. And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new, My
thoughts and my heart will still be with you. And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
What is the Seniors For Seniors Program?

How does it work?
If you would like to adopt a senior boxer (any boxer over 6) and you are a senior citizen, we will place him in your home for an adoption fee of only $100. If you would like a senior boxer and you are NOT a senior citizen, we will place him in your home for an adoption fee of only $175.
