A Woman Saw Old Dogs Struggling To Find New Homes, So She Decided To Take Matters Into Her Own Hands

  • Kim Skarritt was heartbroken when she discovered that hundreds of elderly dogs were struggling to find new forever homes. As a result, she came up with a solution that allowed them to live out their final days with joy and eventually die with dignity.

    Skarritt, from Elk Rapids, Michigan, once worked as an auto engineer. However, back in 2012, she downed her tools to open a dog fitness, boarding and rehabilitation center called Bowsers by the Bay.

    It was because of this business that Skarritt started visiting local animal shelters, where she noticed a worrying pattern. In 2017 she told the Detroit Free Press, “I kept seeing these 14-year-old dogs and 13-year-old dogs in shelters and needing homes, and I’m going, ‘What is that? Who does that?’”

    Bless you for taking care of these dogs. I have 4 of my own. My oldest dog just turned 10 and his health is starting to go downhill, but we will remain by each others side until the end. Each one has a special place in my heart and will forever be a part of my life. Being a pet parent is a tremendous privilege and requires a lifetime commitment. Our pets are not objects to be owned and discarded when no longer wanted. They are forever family. Thanks for listening. GOD BLESS

    I think it's great what she's doing but some people die of old age and have an older dog or in health or financial problems.

    I don't understand how anyone could just handover a dog they've had for over a decade to a shelter. In the last year I lost both, my 19 year old cat Felix and my 15 year old Chihuahua Pixie. I actually think Pixie died from a broken heart because her and Felix were best friends. I couldn't imagine dumping either one of them because they were old. I loved them all of their lives not just some of it. My heart still hurts from losing them. Honestly I'm not sure I could go through it again so I'm thinking of not getting another dog or cat ever again because it just hurts to much.....

    I am a senior with a senior dog of 18. I would never think of dropping my dog off at a shelter. Thankyou for being an earthbound angel to these senior dogs. You have a lot of love in your heart!!!

    Dogs are sacred and what you are doing is incredibly selfless and loving. Many people in the US treat elderly people and elderly dogs, poorly. Other countries cherish elder beings. Unfortunately in the US it’s more common to treat them inhumanely. How do people make donations to your organization? I also have some fundraising ideas that I have used that are very successful. Please let me know. Sybil Graham
