Molly is 13. Her best friend Lily is 9. Recently both their owners passed away. Can you imagine the kind of change they are processing right now?

Their owners were elderly and disabled so they didn’t really leave the house for the last decade.

Tyson’s Place Animal Rescue assists terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets, and when we heard about Molly and Lily’s plight, we took them both into the rescue. They are everything you love about labs – loyal, love going on walks, food motivated, good with respectful kids, housebroken, and friendly.

Molly is feeling sad though and it shows. She needs someone patient with her while she heals her broken heart which is the main reason we are looking to adopt both girls together because they can’t endure anymore loss.

Lily is quick to love and quick to ask for belly rubs and usually has a tail wagging, ready to be pet. She is looking to make up for lost time with all the love and attention she can soak up.

Because the girls hadn’t seen a vet in several years, the first order of business was a thorough veterinary exam. Both girls have ear infections that are being treated but make require continued care, especially for Lily. They had full bloodwork, microchips, fecal check, heartworm test, heartworm and flea prevention, and vaccinations and are healthy for their age.

Lily will need an adopter who is willing to get her a dental cleaning. They both need adopters willing to help them age gracefully, with joint supplements, pain medication if needed, orthopedic beds, and minimal stairs.
