Schmopey was surrendered to VPAS when she was 15 years old because her owner had to move and was only allowed to keep one of his pets, so he chose to keep the dog and gave up Schmopey. This poor little girl was very sad, and had difficulty adjusting. Fortunately for her, we were able to find a foster home for Schmopey where she could relax and enjoy life. Schmopey spent only a few short months in her foster home before she developed cancer and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Although she was with us for such a short amount of time, Schmopey tought everyone how important it is to never give up on a loved-one. Even though Schmopey was 15 years old, her last few months were wonderful and were worth the wait.
