Some animals are fortunate enough to be given a warm home and are showered with love and affection from their owners, never having to worry about food, shelter, or safety. However, those born onto the streets do not share in the same luxuries and often depend on the kindness of humans to get by as they scrimp and forage for survival.
79-year-old stray shelter owner forced to put up 14 of her dogs for her adoption after facing eviction
Fortunately enough for some of these stray animals, some individuals have made it their life’s work to help rescue them off the streets and provide them with a place of safe refuge. Among them include 79-year-old Aunty Angie, who according to animal activist page @myforeverdoggo, has been operating a small shelter housing over 20+ stray dogs for nearly a decade.
Through her diligent care and determination to provide a haven for these animals, she has been able to find permanent homes for many of the dogs under her care and now only has 14 who still live with her. However, Aunty Angie may no longer be able to tend to the remaining dogs who live in her shelter as she had recently been told that she will have to vacate the premises by today (29th March 2022).
“All these years I have been taking care of them from small until big. puppy until now.”
“An then now once you have to give to a home, I want to find a nice home for them, which they love and care (for the dogs).” Aunty Angie said.
In speaking with Wau Post, a representative from @myforeverdoggo said that the dogs have since been relocated to 2 separate shelters for the time being, but they are still looking for any interested parties who may be keen on fostering the dogs temporarily, or adopting them into their own families. This is due to the fact that some of the dogs have not adjusted well in the shelters, and Aunty Angie still has to pay out of her own pocket to house them at these shelter facilities.

The Instagram page has since taken the initiative to share details of the remaining 14 dogs that are still looking for homes of their own.
If you or anyone you know are interested in providing a home for these sweet creatures, do reach out to Aunty Angie’s volunteer via phone at 012-329 0233, or send a message to @myforeverdoggo directly!
