Every year thousands of pets are abandoned on the street or on animal shelter doorsteps for a variety of reasons.
Humane societies often can't meet the needs of aged and ailing animals. If medical treatment for the discarded animals is too expensive or no one adopts them, the pets are often euthanized.
But in northern Washington state, a non-profit program is offering sick animals a place to live out their final years.
