EP Peeps, I Need Your Help!!

OK, HERE'S THE STORY!   I AM CURRENTY CARING FOR A 10 YR OLD MIXED TERRIER NAMED MUNCHKIN, WHO, PRETTY MUCH, ABANDONED HER HOME.  SHE WAS LIVING WITH 2 WOMEN, ONE WENT INTO THE HOSPITAL, THE OTHER IS 85 AND HAS ALZHEIMERS, AND, I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE DID TO THIS DOG, BUT THE DOG GOT OUT, CAME TO MY DOOR, I LET HER IN, AS I USUALLY DO, AND SHE HAS BEEN WITH ME EVER SINCE (GOING ON 3 WEEKS NOW).  SHE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT GO BACK TO THAT HOUSE.  I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE TASK OF TRYING TO FIND A PLACE FOR HER, AND I HAVE CONTACTED SEVERAL NO-KILL SHELTERS IN ILLINOIS TO TAKE HER, BUT NO ONE WILL, BECAUSE, THEY SAY,  SHE'S TO OLD.  DEAR LORD!!!!  SHE IS A WONDERFUL DOG, A BIT SPOILED AND OVERWEIGHT, BUT HAS MANY GOOD YEARS AHEAD OF HER.  MY PROBLEM IS,,, FINDING A PLACE THAT WILL TAKE HER, WHERE SHE WON'T BE PUT DOWN.  I CANNOT KEEP HER AS I HAVE A TINY APT. AND ALREADY HAVE A CAT THAT I RESCUED ABOUT 5 MONTHS AGO WHO STILL IS RECOVERING FROM A NEGLECTED HOME, PLUS, I AM DISABLED AND NOT ABLE TO CARE FOR MUNCHKIN.  MY HEART IS SO TORN HERE.  SHE WON'T GO BACK HOME, AND I CANNOT KEEP HER MUCH LONGER, AND NO ONE WANTS HER.

ANY ADVICE??  ANYONE KNOW OF A PLACE THAT MIGHT TAKE HER, EVEN THO SHE IS AN OLDER DOG??  I'M SO UPSET OVER THIS BECAUSE I HAVE DONATED TO MANY OF THESE SHELTERS OVER THE YEARS,,, AND NOW THAT I NEED HELP,,,,THEY DON'T WANT TO BE BOTHERED,,, HOW VERY SAD THAT IS FOR OLDER ANIMALS WHO CANNOT BE CARED FOR BY THEIR HUMANS ANYMORE.  THIS REALLY DISTURBS ME.

SO,, I'M ASKING FOR SOME HELP HERE.  I APPRECIATE ANY THOUGHTS  YOU MAY HAVE AS TO WHAT I SHOULD DO BECAUSE,,,,I'VE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN, AND MY STRESS LEVEL IS AT IT'S PEAK

THANKS FOLKS!!!!

Could you possibly post her pic with some info in your vets office?

I know you say you can't take care of your friend who came to you as a gift, search your heart, there is a reason god sent her to you. I'm disabled too and have a little farm myself. Munchkin must have a good sense of character and has come to you because so. Munchkin searched for a human soul to love and keep her safe. It's truly sad when people treat our earth bound neighbors and friends with such care. I can tell by your writing that you are a good person and don't look at our friends as animals, but rather comrades on a coexistent plane of life. If it is impossible for you to keep her because of funds ( most of us who are disabled can relate to that) I would be willing to send care funds to help you. If the reason is there's simply no room, I will send you funds to place an add in the paper to find someone like you or I who would be willing to share their life with your friend. Mind you I'm not rich but helping you on your quest to find a sharing soul would be worth well my money to help. Take care of yourself and god be with you.<br />
Your new friend,<br />
