What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Vintage Paws is working to save senior dogs from premature euthanasia. Many of these dogs have a lot more life and love to give and due to circumstances beyond their control, they are abandoned on the side of the road or left at high kill shelters where most are euthanized. Up to 7 million pets are abandoned in the U.S. each year according to the ASPCA. Sixty percent of those pets are euthanized due to lack of available resources. Of those, 41% of all abandoned pets are of an advanced age, making them the most likely candidates for euthanasia. With grants and fundraising events, Vintage Paws hopes to build a space to give these senior dogs a home to live out their lives and/or be given the opportunity to be adopted or fostered.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Senior Dog Rescue

Providing temporary or permanent housing to senior dogs who have been displaced.  Along with housing the dogs, Vintage Paws will provide a safe, clean and sanitary living environment, high quality meals, loving care provided by trained volunteers and all pet supplies needed to keep the Vintage residents comfortable and happy.

Population(s) Served

Vintage Paws provides all necessary veterinary care upon intake of a new dog and then provides continuing veterinary care while the dog is a resident or when he or she is in foster care.  This may include treatment of infections including skin, eye or ear; parasites including fleas, ticks, stool or heartworms; dentals if needed and updating vaccines if needed.  We microchip the dog unless he or she was previously chipped.  Chemotherapy and radiation has been provided from a veterinary oncologist.  We provide eye care from a veterinary ophthalmologist and MRI and surgery from a veterinary neurologist.  We have provided surgical care when necessary to prolong a dog's life or to provide him or her with a better quality of life.

Population(s) Served

Due to advanced age and/or illness, some dogs may never get adopted and may be eligible to be Forever Fostered by a loving family.  Hospice dogs generally require more medications, vet visits and/or specialized care.  When a senior dog enters the Fospice Program, the focus is on quality of life versus quantity.  We never want the dog to suffer needlessly and want to provide the most enjoyment for whatever time the dog may have left.

Population(s) Served

The Senior Buddies Program gives donors an opportunity to provide monthly support for a Vintage Paws senior dog.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of Vintage Paws is to give senior and terminally-ill dogs a home of their own and to improve the quality of life for these dogs by bringing their health back up to par, which has often times been neglected for years. Without our own facility, Vintage Paws is limited to the number of senior dogs we can save.

We have four ongoing programs in place: Senior Dog Rescue, Veterinary Care, Fospice Care (Forever Hospice Care) and Senior Buddies.

Senior Dog Rescue: provide temporary or permanent housing to senior dogs who have been displaced. Along with housing the dogs, Vintage Paws will provide a safe, clean and sanitary living environment, high quality meals, loving care provided by trained volunteers and all pet supplies needed to keep the Vintage Residents comfortable and happy.

Veterinary Care: providing all necessary veterinary care upon intake of a new dog and continuing care while the dog is a resident or when he or she is in foster care.

Fospice Care: due to advanced age and/or illness, some dogs may never get adopted and may be eligible to be Forever Hospice Fostered by a loving family. Fospice dogs generally require more medications, vet visits and/or specialized care. When a senior dog enters the Fospice Program, the focus is on quality of life versus quantity. We never want the dog to suffer needlessly and want to provide the most enjoyment for whatever time the dog may have left.

Senior Buddies: gives donors an opportunity to provide monthly support for a Vintage Paws senior dog.

These programs have specific goals and budgets. We are able to track how many dogs we have taken in, what their status is and if our budget needs are being met. We have collaborated with various veterinarians and specialists, animal groups and shelters to provide sanctuary for senior dogs.

Since 2004, we have taken in and cared for over 300 dogs who would have otherwise been euthanized. Of those, we have found permanent or Fospice homes for over 200 senior dogs. We measure success by each life we save from premature euthanasia. Our ultimate goal is a free standing senior dog living environment to help more senior dogs find their happily ever after.
