Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many senior dogs are abandoned by their owners. We do not believe these seniors deserve to die unloved in animal control shelters or to pass away wandering where they were dumped without food, water or any way to sustain themselves. These dogs are the target of our rescue.

Charting impact

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

Senior dogs are taken into our rescue and given medical care and the love they deserve. We wish to eliminate the dumping of senior dogs wherever they are found. We rehab them if possible, if not we become a hospice and care for them until they pass away. If possible the dogs serve the community. We currently have 4 rescued seniors that serve the community as therapy dogs. These dogs provide visits for a local hospice patients and a local nursing home entirely on a no cost volunteer basis. Most of the people they visit are in less than 6 months left to live situations. We make on the average 20 patient visits a week.

We take in seniors from animal control, the local SPCA and seniors reported to us by the public who are found wandering. In some cases directly from owners who can no longer care for them

Our facility is home based, we have capabilities for 30 dogs mostly under 20 lbs. We have very dedicated caregivers who volunteer their time for their care. Our facility is a 3 story house on 3 acres with fenced and open areas for the dogs. The entire house was remodeled for the sole purpose of the seniors being in a loving home environment where they can live comfortably, just as a pet would.

We have removed over 40 seniors from dire circumstances in the year we have been open, We have been able to adopt out some. Many now live comfortably in our rescue after major medical care. Four have become therapy dogs to give back to the community and to show senior dogs still have great value.
