Countless dogs and cats are waiting for a new home at the Berlin animal shelter – including many older, sick animals that often have trouble finding a new master or mistress. The situation for the seriously ill grandmother of dogs Helga is particularly tragic: she would like to curl up on a comfortable sofa again before she dies – because she is looking for shelter. Who gives grandma to the dog a home … and makes sure that she does not die at the shelter?

The Berlin Animal Shelter’s website states that Helga came to the animal shelter in July due to a seizure issued for violating animal welfare law. “It’s a very cute and adorable gray muzzle, which gets along well with all of our people and dogs so far. Unfortunately, Helga doesn’t have much life left – she has an inoperable bladder tumor as well as struvite stones and arthritis, but she hasn’t had any problems Great with her in everyday life so far and she’s adapting well to medication.”
She’s dashing, and she masters basic commands – whether she can survive on her own well may have to be tried. “Since she is currently still quite plump for her size, in addition to the adjusted food intake, a gentle, age-appropriate training program would be very beneficial for her to get her back in shape.” Because of her arthritis, she no longer has to climb stairs, so it is important to have an apartment on ground level or access to an elevator.
