Shelter animals spend Thanksgiving with foster families in Shenandoah Valley

Lyndhurst – One dog who will spend his holidays in a warm, loving home is the Antique.

The Highland County Humane Society founder sent an old photo to Diane McIntyre who often cares for old dogs and breed dogs, then McIntyre reached out to the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center that shelters the dog to give her a temporary home.

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is trying to find nursing homes for their shelter dogs during the holidays.  One of their shelter dogs, Antique, is spending Thanksgiving with Diane McIntyre who takes care of old dogs and breeding dogs from animal shelters in Northwest Virginia.

“Definitely antique as its name suggests,” McIntyre said. “Old. God only knows her tale but she is very underweight and has some kidney problems and poor eyesight. Dogs like her do not do well in a shelter. Their health problems tend to multiply every day.”

Antique was caught straying, so she had to be held at the shelter for a while to see if the owner came forward.
