Welcome to YAH, Maya!


Rescued: Please join us in welcoming Maya! Maya is 9 years old and came to us from a city shelter after her family decided they could not provide what she needed medically. Maya’s family was offered support from CRISP and Live Like Roo, but sometimes despite their best efforts to keep pets from being surrendered, families just can’t make it work. So, now Maya is part of the Young at Heart family and is quickly settling into foster and the good life! 

Maya has multiple mammary tumors and will have a bilateral mastectomy, along with a spay, on Tuesday. We are hoping upon hope that the tumors are benign, but because there are multiple masses we are being aggressive with surgery to give her the best chance possible. Please keep Maya in your thoughts. She is beyond sweet and we can’t wait for her to put this chapter behind her! 

It will be at least a few weeks before she’s ready for adoption, but if you would like to learn more about her, please drop us an email at adopt@adoptaseniorpet.com. 

Many thanks to Live Like Roo Foundation for their help, and to Lindsay for making the trip all the way up north from the South Side to get Maya out of the shelter and to her foster home! 

We are so in love with Maya! ❤️
