I am not looking, but the phone is still ringing

There are 2 more senior dogs in the pounds...one is an old bassett with health issues (eye/ears?), I just got the phone message but haven't talked to the staff yet as i am on 12 hour shifts this weekend and they are closed when i leave and closed when I get home again. Also there is an old, blind and crippled shepx at a different pound that needs some help too....too many old ones, not enough places for them to go. I find it all so very sad. But we are too full. No more can come here til either some of ours find homes or fosters or sadly, until some of them pass away. I don't think any animal deserves to die homeless. But for the ones who have survived for time untold, for the ones who lay facing a barren and lonely end to a barren and lonely life; these ones, I think should feel some light of compassion and caring before they pass. If they don't, all they will remember is a lifetime of nothing. How can we let that be their ending? Maybe that was their beginning, and maybe it followed them through out their lives and right up to their end, but never should it follow them to their very last breath. It hurts me, it hurts us all.
