 I have a friend in rescue.   She adopted one from us, but he had passed away and she missed having a Peke in the house.   She has begun her own rescue group, saving so many dogs-- but she wanted another Peke.   We kept looking for one for her, but then one in a shelter came into their rescue.  
 Little was an 11 year old Peke who had been turned into the shelter by his family.  (I will never understand that!)     He needed a lot of help and my friend was willing to do all he needed.  
So, I'm not looking for a Peke for her anymore because one precious Peke found her!   Little, you are going to have such a loving family and all the care you need.   I'm so happy for you all!!    (Thanks to your mom for sharing you with me in her email!!  And of course, if you want another Peke, all you have to do is ask, and I'll start looking again!)

It would appear that for the past few years we are seeing a shift in cost of treating seniors. Specifically, the cost of elder care, though providing a higher percentage “good” outcome and extended quality of life, comes with a much higher cost. This may be behind why so many seniors are being left at shelters. Not only does this break my heart, but frustrating because so many rescue groups are out there that can point people in the right direction for affordable pet care.
I completely understand financial circumstances sometimes force people to make heartbreaking decisions but there are always options. For example, in the community where my parents live there is a group that has run about two dozen GoFundMe campaigns to help seniors in their community pay for out of the ordinary pet care expenses (along with a very considerate vet that provides a pro-bono percentage of their practice for just some instances at cost).
Also to be considered is pet insurance that on a national average of $1 a day provides routine care but buffers for out of the ordinary procedures.
