Moose was tragically brought to a shelter during what was supposed to be his "golden years." He was grey and arthritic entering through the cage doors that were supposed to be his last. That particular shelter held hundreds of other animals, most of whom were several years younger than Moose. Moose's story and history presented him with very little chance of a fresh start and even smaller of being adopted. His time was limited and as he was looked over by the shelter vet, the numerous health problems that were found, did little to help his case. But one of the shelter staff saw past all of this and instead developed a strong connection with Moose. She took him home, in hopes of getting him through some of smaller health hurdles and perhaps giving him the TLC that was needed, so that someone else could see what she had all along. Moose settled in fast and the connection that she had felt with him, soon extended to Moose and her little boy too. Moose watched over the family for years and was loved every minute after she had brought him home. Pictured here is an original drawing of Moose and was done with colored pencil and pastel.
