A bucket list is the best way to try and make sure you get to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do.

For Morgan, an 18-year-old rescue dog, his bucket list is long and he’s gotten a lot of help to get accomplish all of it before his 19th birthday.

Morgan was surrendered to a shelter when his owner passed away. He first was at Lee County Domestic Animal Services in Fort Myers, Florida, but when they realized how old he was, they knew they needed to get Morgan out of the shelter fast.

Senior dogs don’t often fair well in shelters, as many people choose to adopt puppies and young dogs.

That is where Senior Paws Sanctuary comes in.

“LCDAS called SPS to inform us that an elderly, unadoptable dog had arrived and wanted to know if we could help him,” Kate Reidy, Morgan’s foster mom, told the Dodo. “The founder and organizer of SPS went to see Morgan and fell in love.”

All the dogs at Senior Paws Sanctuary go out to foster homes. Kate says Morgan has only gotten livelier the more he’s been with her, despite his age. That’s why she decided to make him a bucket list! In the video below, you can see some of the things Morgan has checked off his bucket list.

If you are happy to see Morgan living his best life after being surrendered to a shelter, you’ll also love this woman who rushed to adopt and save an elderly dog from a high-kill shelter.

Please SHARE Morgan with all your friends and family to give them a reason to smile today!
