Autumn the Hopeful Rottweiler is Looking for a Loving Family to Spend Her Last Days With

Autumn is a loving Rottweiler that is in desperate search of her
forever home. While many dogs spend a lot of time waiting at the
shelter for their forever family to rescue them, Autumn doesn’t
have as much time as they do. Sadly, Autumn only has a few weeks to
live, but Ramapo-Bergen Animal
Refuge
in New Jersey refuses to let her last days be
depressing. They hope that someone will give Autumn a place to stay
for her remaining days, but in the meantime, the refuge will do
what they can to make her as happy as possible.

Autumn’s Story

Autumn is currently 7 years old, and until recently, she spent
her whole life outdoors. She loved to run around and enjoy the
fresh breeze. Sadly, when she began to limp, her family surrendered
her to a kill shelter. They claimed that they just didn’t have
enough time for her.

Since she had lived outside her whole life without proper
socialization, many rescues shied away from trying to help her.
Luckily, she found Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, and they decided to
do whatever they could to help her.

When they rescued Autumn, she couldn’t put weight on her back
leg. Her condition only got worse as time went on, so they knew
that they had to do something. In the meantime, Autumn stayed
hopeful though. She continued to wag her tail and give cute puppy
dog eyes to potential adopters. All she wanted was a family to love
her.

The animal refuge staff rushed Autumn to the hospital not long
after they rescued her in order to get her leg properly evaluated.
The x-rays of Autumn’s knee revealed that she had bone cancer,
which means she likely only has weeks to live. She is on pain
medications, but she desperately wants someone to love her and care
for her in the meantime.

Help Autumn Find a Home!

Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge is seeking out a kind individual to
spend Autumn’s last days with her. They do not want her remaining
time to be wasted, so while they wait for someone to help out, the
animal refuge is giving her as much love as possible.

“Autumn’s happily ever after may look different than we
expected, but despite everything she has been through, she is a
sweet, happy girl that only knows how to live,” posted
Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge.

Autumn would love a hospice foster to spend her last days with
or even a temporary foster to allow her to spend a night or two.
Any kindness would help her greatly. She is a sweet dog that has
never lost hope of having a great life. Even if you can’t donate
your time to help her, consider donating some money to help with
her medical costs and of course, share her story. Any help she can
get will benefit her so much.

If you have a home that you think would be a good fit for
Autumn, you can contact the refuge at dogkennel@rbari.org.
