Saying Goodbye to My Fur-Brother: Gizmo “Old Man”

Tomorrow, I will be saying goodbye to my “Old Man”.  Gizmo was my Fur-Brother for over 15 years or more. He has been with my family for his whole life, but due to moving and new landlord issues. I had to make a heart breaking decision to re-home him immediately or surrender him to the animal shelter down town. I believe that I have found the best home for him and he will be able to live his life with a family, instead of living in a cage the rest of his life.

I am so happy to have I met his new pet parent by phone today and I told her all about him. I really am excited for him to start a new life, but it is a bittersweet emotion I am feeling tonight. He is a loyal, sweet, and fun dog to love or adore as much as I do. My family adored him as well, because of his laid back personality. He loves playing with cats and other dogs around his size.

Gizmo’s Journey So Far

I have always been his “Sissy”, since the day that he was born to my momma’s Poodle and her Chihuahua mix. He was my granddad’s puppy/dog for many years, until he passed away. Then, my mother claimed him and cared for him. I moved in with my mom six years ago to help her out, but unfortunately both mine and her situation has changed. Recently, mom was placed in a nursing home for health reasons.

Additionally, my husband and I moved as well, but now we have Gizmo with us fulltime. He loves it but my landlord doesn’t. Thankfully, I was given time to find him a very good home. I did my screening and I know that he will adjust well to his new companion. Gizmo and I have a very strong family bond, which will make this a very hard step for me to make. Pray for me that Gizmo, my momma, and I will both have the strength to adjust from this change in our lives.

I have so many memories with him, but he has over the last few years he has become partly deaf and partly blind. However, throughout these changes, he has literally stayed right by me and my husband. I will miss him so much every day, but I know deep in my heart that he is getting a new pet parent that will love him as much as my family has. Thank you for the prayers people has sent out on his behalf, in order to guide meto the best home for him.

I will keep in contact with his new pet parent, until he crosses the rainbow bridge.

To Gizmo: Sissy loves you always and you truly hung the moon. Thanks for the sweet and special memories that we have shared.

Sorry to be so emotional

Thank you stopping by,

By, Crystal S. Kauffman,

Are you a dog or cat parent, who lives in Jacksonville, FL.? If so, take a look at the special programs, which First Coast No More Homeless Pets will offer you? Your beloved pets need veterinarian care, as well as other services like: spaying and neutering, city licenses, and shots. This program has been around for many years, but I learned about it and I wanted to share what I found out with you. This animal hospital wants you to be able to keep your pets, so they have slashed their prices to help you.

Additionally, if you do not live in my town, you may be able to find services that are similar to what this animal hospital is offering local families. The veterinarian center is offering low cost services, as well as spaying and neutering your pet for free. However, you must buy any pain medicine for your pet, but the pain medication is only $8.00 for each animal. In addition, they have a pet food bank that will give you food for each of your cats or dogs.

Unfortunately, you must visit their website to learn what you must bring with you to qualify for the low cost care and free food. For more information or to see if you qualify, visit First Coast No More Homeless Pets website to learn more about each program that they offer. If you are able, the facility also takes donations that are accepted and distributed throughout the Jacksonville, FL. area. However, call 904-520-7900 or email them first at info@fcnmhp.org, in order to see what exactly that they may need.
