Shelter Throws a Heartwarming Surprise Party for Senior Dog Previously Deemed Unadoptable.5nau

“Shelter Organizes an Adorable Surprise Party for an Unadoptable Senior Dog Meet Loco, an energetic senior dog who recently marked a significant milestone. Typically, birthdays at the animal shelter are celebrated quietly, but for Loco, the team at Spartanburg Humane Society decided to make it extra special.

Angel Cox, the Chief Operating Officer of the Spartanburg Humane Society, shared, ‘She wore a birthday hat and a frilly collar, and the entire staff gathered to sing to her. She enjoyed a sweet potato cake and even received a Happy Birthday banner for her office door.’

The guest list was filled with Loco’s favorite people, but dogs were not invited. Cox explained, ‘She is selective about the people she likes. When she loves you, she truly loves you. On the other hand, she dislikes people she dislikes and is not a fan of other dogs.’

Despite the absence of dogs, everyone was delighted to celebrate the lively little dog they have all come to adore over the past two years.

Loco was surrendered to the shelter in 2020 due to chronic medical issues. Over time, she has become the face of the facility and even has her own cozy sanctuary, away from the pets and people she’d rather not be around.

Cox explained, ‘We moved her to a more comfortable workspace where she has three or four dog beds and enjoys sleeping in all of them.’

Throughout her stay at the shelter, Loco has faced various medical challenges. Cox elaborated, ‘When she arrived, she was 13 years old, heartworm-positive, had thyroid issues, and hip problems. Her numerous health concerns and the associated expenses made her an unsuitable candidate for adoption.’

Today, Loco has proven herself to be a true survivor. She is now heartworm-negative, receives regular vaccinations, and takes thyroid medication to maintain her health.

Despite her age relative to other shelter residents, she remains in excellent health. While she is not seeking a new home, as she has assumed the title of ‘office dog,’ she is far from the typical shelter life. According to Cox, it’s her unique personality that makes her one of the most unforgettable animals they’ve ever had.”
