Sweet ol' Ben came into the shelter with a pack of hunting dogs. None of them were in great shape but Ben was the worst: underweight, with overgrown nails and ripped up ears, Ben was timid and sad. Tails of Hope saw his pathetic face and decided to take him, expecting a tired, frightened old dog who would curl up and hide when he made it into his foster home. But what a surprise for his new foster parents, when Ben came home and started romping all over the yard! His tail was held high and he wagged it at his new foster friends. Ben explored for almost 2 hours before finally deciding to rest in what was probably his first fluffy bed. It's apparent that Ben has never been in a house before; he is very curious and confused by everything, especially the tv which he enjoys very much. He has a lot of manners to learn but he is very agreable and is already settling in. This guy has a lot of life left in him, and we are looking for a home where he will be loved and cared for for the rest of his days. Ben deserves so much more than life has given him- please help him learn how to be a part of a real family! Please note: Ben has a heart condition that requires him to have daily medications. They are inexpensive and he takes them nicely with canned food or pill pockets.ÿ

About Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of senior dogs and cats in the Southern Pennsylvania/Northern Maryland areas.
We believe that senior animals deserve loving, caring homes where they will be taken care of the rest of their days.

Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue was founded in 2015 by a small group of animal lovers. Years of rescue showed us that the senior demographic in shelters is often the most overlooked and highly euthanized. These animals are discarded because of failing health, new pets in the family, a lack of time for attention and care, and countless other reasons which Good Old Tails finds deplorable. Pets are a commitment for life, not until they are an inconvenience. We are dedicated to saving as many senior dogs and cats as we can, and providing them with love and care so that they can live out the rest of their days with dignity and happiness. Some of these animals may never leave our rescue, and their foster families will be the ones to say the last good-bye. Others will go on to find families of their own. Whatever the outcome, we have made the promise to them that they will never again be alone.
