I love blogging about human kindness and happy endings. Platty is a year 10 year old golden retriever who was dropped off at a shelter in Tulsa Oklahoma. His condition looked terrible, and he was a sight for sore eyes.
His sweet personality and general good looks drew the attention of one of the volunteers, Allie Elmore, who has since made Platty’s life a joy. Platty’s fate may already be determined, but his last days are being lived out with so much love and happiness, thanks to some really wonderful people.
Platty has a huge tumor that has disfigured his face, and the biopsy has confirmed he has cancer that has spread to his lungs. Platty was given a sentence of about two weeks. His owner has raised funds to care for him, and has exceeded her goal. She plans to donate the extra money to the Tulsa Animal Welfare shelter in Platty’s name to help other dogs in need.
