12 yr old, 75 lb Labrador Retriever -- HOSPICE

 

 ***JAMES BOND is a HOSPICE dog who does not have much time left.  We are posting him for AWARENESS ONLY and we are not looking to move him from his fospice (foster/hospice) home.  He would love chew treats and wet food from our Amazon Wish List that can be found here:  http://a.co/58dpbX4.  Thank you for understanding****

 

BOND, JAMES BOND -- SF Bay Area of CA
 
We would like to extend our warmest welcome to our newest hospice foster -- Mr James Bond himself.
 
James Bond is a 12 yr old, 75 lb Labrador Retriever who was dumped by the family that he had known his whole life to be euthanized because he was having trouble walking. He had not visited a vet in over 11 years.
 
San Jose Animal Care Center reached out to us via San Jose Animal Advocates and Tails of a Shelter Vet and a wonderful volunteer transported him and three other dogs to us.
 
What we expected was hip dysplasia and an anal gland infection but what it turned out to be was a HUGE cancerous rectal tumor that has metastasized to his spine, lungs and shoulder. He will not be with us for very long. But he will be warm. He will be fed. He will be on excellent pain medications (even though he does not seem to be painful thank goodness). And he will have as many stuffed animals that he would like to tear into smithereens and as many bully sticks and other chewies as his heart desires. There might be some ice cream, steak, hamburgers and chocolate in that line up too. We go big here at Umbrella of Hope.
 
Sometimes rescue is about nothing more than giving an animal back their dignity before sending them on to their place in the greater universe. A dog who was loyal and loving for 12 years deserves to be set free from this life with his family surrounding him. And so he will. We are now his family.
 
Our wonderful hospice fosters, Andrea and Michael, agreed to have their hearts broken yet again in order to give this wonderful dog the ending that he earned and deserved. Our hats are off to them.
 
If you would like to contribute to our hospice fund to allow us to continue to take these sweet animals and give them a beautiful sunset, please do so online at http://www.paypal.me/UOH or send a check to our mailing address 4040 Railroad Blvd, Pittsburg, CA 94565. They are tax deductible.
 
If you would like to send James Bond a chew toy/treat, you can find our Amazon Wish List here: http://a.co/6OWnySK

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!
