Save Least Adoptable Animals

A job in accounting may seem like a big commitment to most, but for Colorado accountant Steve Greig, adopting 8 dogs, 2 cats, ducks, chickens and a pig makes his job seem like a doddle.

Following the death of his red miniature pinscher, Wolfgang four years ago, he decided to adopt the oldest and least adoptable dog in the local shelter.

Greig consequently returned home with Eeyore, a 12-year-old Chihuahua with bad knees and a heart murmur.

The Colorado resident told Mashable his recent addition would signal a new beginning in his life. Although the pain was hard to overcome he found it extremely powerful to both honor Wolfgang’s life and give an opportunity to another animal that may not have otherwise had that chance.

Living by the principle of adopting the least adoptable animals possible, Greig now has a house full of pets, most of which being seniors.

Headed to the farm

Greig’s typical day starts at 5 am and begins with preparing breakfast for his furry flatmates. To make it even harder all10 meals are different including a blended meal for his toothless dog and he also needs to dispense various medication for the sicker animals.

Out of the bunch, Bikini the pot-bellied pig seems to steal the show. The high maintenance pig likes being towed around and laying in the sun, but she also seems to be a big hit on Greig’s Instagram.

Greig also spurs others on to follow in his footsteps. While he admits it can be very difficult and even reparative at times, he feels blessed to have these animals in his life. “They are frightened, confused and desperately need to be cared for and loved, but they will return that love in abundance”.

Senior dogs may not seem as desirable to adopt, but Greig believes older animals have older spirits and have more personality as a result. He also believes older animals seem to know who they are and it’s easier to build relationships with animals who know who they are.

Happy Thanksgiving!

While a house full of animals keeps this 50-year-old accountant more than busy, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

“It’s definitely very time-consuming and a part-time job in itself … But they’re my family. It’s a good feeling … Knowing that these little guys are loved, cared for and together in a home they deserve”
