When Southern Indiana Animal Rescue came to select her up, they found that she was only 70 pounds when she should’ve been about 140. However, the rescue later learned that her weight wasn’t even her worst problem. Poor Mae was diagnosed with terminal cancer, given between 2 weeks, and a couple of months to somemeasure.
The rescuers knew that May should spend her last days comfortably. Therefore, Elizabeth Starck (Elizabeth Starck) continued to raise her. Over the past 9 years, Starck has fostered about 400 animals. She’s always determined to offer them the simplest life possible.
“I love the old ones. I really like those that just need an area to travel until it’s their time,” Starck said. “Just knowing whether or not they are with me every week or for 2 years… I hope that their time with me is wonderful for them. It changes their life hopefully.” Caring for Mae, For such an outsized dog, Mae isn’t cheap, especially when it involves food. She eats about 10 cans of food a day! So, the rescue posted on Facebook posing for food donations, and to their surprise, many of us were extremely generous.

These amazing donations not only gave Mae enough food, but also helped many other dogs in need.also. Mae soon became very fashionable on social media. Rescuers and Stark regularly post cute photos and updates on Mae. She has many people cheering her on. She has attended some fundraisers and meet-and-greets with fans. This sweet dog gets along side all her fellow foster dogs and foster cats. She’s very curious around the cats and likes to follow them around.
A Formal Adoption Starck quickly learned that she and Mae had a especial bond. Mae is such a sweet and loving dog, and Starck knew that Mae was meant to be a neighborhood of her family. So, after fostering her for fewer than 2 months, Starck decided to adopt her.
Starck brought Mae to the courtroom, where she pledged to like and look after her. County Judge, Vicki Carmichael signed an adoption certificate, making Mae officially a member of Starck’s family. Now, Mei has a loving home to measure her remaining days. Starck doesn’t skills for much longer Mae is going to be with her, but she’s so grateful to possess such a sweet dog in her life, although it’s only for a brief period of your time .
UPDATE: Mae lived a cheerful life as well as her new family – but her humans always knew that their time would be short. On January 9, 2020, Mae’s mom posted the subsequent to Facebook:
“I’ve dreaded this since November 16th once I received the “it’s cancer” call. Today Mae let me know she was tired and her mission and purpose in life was fulfilled.“She shared her love of life and other people with everyone she met. She lives for food and her newly discovered cat friend. She had such a mild way about her and her calm way showed whenever she met someone new. I’m getting to miss her adorable face such a lot and I’d roll in the hay everywhere again if I could. Her nine weeks with all folks was something I never expected, but you all made it wonderful for her and myself. She deserved it and loved every minute of it. She felt all the love, from near and far. ❤️“Mae, until we meet again. Run free sweet girl, you’re one during a million.”
