Shelter Throws The Sweetest Surprise Party For Unadoptable Senior Dog



Introducing Loco, a vivacious senior dog who recently had a big birthday. At the Spartanburg Humane Society, birthdays are often discreetly observed, but for Loco, staff members knew they had to go above and beyond.


The entire staff gathered and sang to her while she was wearing a birthday hat and frilly collar, according to Angel Cox, chief operating officer of Spartanburg Humane Society. She enjoyed a sweet potato cake that she had. A Happy Birthday banner was supplied to her by the bakery industry for her workplace door.

There were a lot of Loco’s favorite people in attendance, but dogs were not permitted.
She cares a lot about her family, according to Cox. When she loves you, she truly loves you. On the other side, she hates those she doesn’t like. She also dislikes other dogs.

Everyone enjoyed paying tribute to the feisty little nugget they have all grown to know and love for more than two years, even if there were no dogs present.



As the facility’s public face, Loco, who was turned over to the shelter in 2020 owing to ongoing medical issues, has emerged. She even has a cozy retreat of her own away from the animals and humans she prefers to avoid.
Cox said, “We moved her to a more comfortable workstation. She sleeps in all three or four of her dog beds.


Throughout her time in the shelter, Loco has experienced her share of medical issues.
She was 13, heartworm positive, thyroid problems, and hip issues when she came, so Cox said she was not a suitable candidate for adoption because she arrived with so many worries and whose care would be costly for most people.



Loco has finally established her worth as a fighter. She receives routine immunizations, tests negative for heartworms, and takes thyroid medication to be healthy.
She is in excellent health despite being a little older than many of the residents of the shelter. With her new position as a “office dog,” she isn’t looking for a new home, but that doesn’t mean she’s loving the typical shelter lifestyle. She is one of their most beloved dogs to date, according to Cox, who thinks her personality is what makes her so special.
