This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue in Las Vegas, NV.
Note: Connor and Millie’s does not accept out of state adoption applications.
From Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue website
Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue is named after two very special dogs that I was blessed to have in my life. That the universe found me to be worthy of such a gift is forever humbling. This rescue is their legacy. It is based on Connor and Millie’s sheer tenacity and determination to survive; their desire to love, be loved, and the ability to forgive. Please join us in this mission to seek out and provide hope to the Connors and the Millies struggling out there and gift them a destiny.
No rescue can survive without dedicated volunteers. With CMDR, you will be given all of the tools you need to be the best temporary fur parent you can be. We provide support with tutorials on in home care, emergency support, dietary advice and all medical is paid for by CMDR. We will also be here for you if you need time off to take care of personal issues. As we grow we will be providing hand outs and online ways to increase your knowledge and confidence.
We are looking for experienced fosters who have the knowledge to care for senior dogs or dogs with medical issues. Our dogs have been traumatized and will need special care and attention. Please only adults with their own homes and transportation apply. If you rent, we require a letter from your landlord approving dogs to be fostered. We welcome Vet Techs and medical personnel.

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue.
Miss Pearl was rescued by CMDR from the kill shelter where she was on the list because she had bad teeth and arthritis. Pearl had to have all of her teeth pulled, but has recovered from that and is doing very well. Pearl weighs about 7-pounds and has to eat soft food only since she has no teeth. Pearl likes other small female dogs but does not like large dogs. Pearl has learned how to trust people again but takes her time getting to know new people.
Pearl is spayed, up to date on shots, house broken, and loving. Pearl is 9-years young, is arthritic , but gets around well and still has a lot of spunk. If you would like to give Pearl her forever home, contact CMDR on their website to fill out an interest form.

Ripley2 aka Petey
Sweety Petey is about 9-years old and weighs about 5-pounds. He is a little lover who was found as a stray on Christmas Eve. The name the shelter gave him just did not fit (Ripley), and when we found out how sweet he is, we just had to give him a new name. CMDR saved him when he was starving, terrified, and with lung and mouth infections at the shelter. Petey is now healthy and has many more years of love to give. Petey is still afraid of men, so a home with women only would be best for everyone. He is a lap dog! We give special rates for senior citizens who adopt a senior dog!

Poppy is 10-12 years old and weighs about 12-pounds. He is quiet and very gentle. Poppy is potty trained as long as he is guided outside. He finds his way right back in and can also follow your voice.

My name is Loch like in Lochness, but I prefer Lokie. I am a Husky mix. Lokie weighs 30-pounds and the Vet says I am between 7 and 8 years old. I am sooooo sweet and love, love love to give my humans lots of kisses. I really like my new fur buddies too, but I don’t play with them because I would rather be with my human.
Exploring is fun, but I don’t like to be outside in the heat very long. I am neutered, potty trained, and know how to use the doggie door. I am up to date on shots and microchipped.

Lady Bug needs a quiet home where she can feel safe and loved. She is affectionate and quiet, about 10-years old, and still has a lot of life and love left in her.

Bogey is a very sweet and gentle senior dog. Bogey will celebrate his 16th birthday in October! Bogey loves to cuddle and still likes to go on walks.
