Grenwood SC - TWO Loveable senior labs.....need homes or rescue!!!

We have 2 Seniors here that have really tugged at our heartstrings. Brady and Big Sweetie! They were both turned into the shelter by their owners. 
Brady #22891535 
Brady is an 11 yr old Lab mix, a spayed female. She is very gentle, loving, and well mannered. Brady was turned in by her owner, (brace yourself for this reason), because they were going on vacation. The owners said that they were going on vacation for 2 months and had been planning it for a while. Their pet sitter backed out on them and so they brought Brady up to the shelter and just signed her over.  Brady is a lovely girl, at first she was so nervous being here she couldn't keep any food down. We found her a friend "Big Sweetie" and it has seemed to help her alot to settle down and relax. Brady is an older girl but still gets around good. 

Big Sweetie #22262611
Big Sweetie is 13 years old and a Lab / Golden mix, a neutered male. He is a great guy, loves everyone he meets and is in GREAT condition to be his age. He is still very playful and likes to go walking. Big Sweetie was turned in by his owner after they had gotten him from another home 2 years earlier because she said she didn't have time to spend with him anymore. She had just been leaving him in the backyard with hardly any interaction. Big Sweetie is a big guy with a lot of love to give. 

I think both of these sweet older babies would be great in any home, they still have energy and would be great with kids. They get along great and are now roommates, we really hope to find help for our senior babies. Can you help them?

URGENT!! Union County NC - senior spaniel Jetta needs rescue now!

Jetta is a female Spaniel Mix that came into the shelter on Saturday. Jetta’s mom is going into a nursing facility and is unable to take Jetta with her. Jetta is 12 years old and weighs approx.. 20 lbs. We are currently calling to find out if Jetta has been spayed. Jetta is an extremely happy girl that loves everyone. Jetta really wants your attention. She would make a great couch potato!! Jetta walks well on a leash and stays right beside you, she does not pull you and if you are behind her, she stops and looks back to make sure you are still with her.
We would like a commitment by a rescue by Thursday, June 5th.
