Our Mission We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe and caring environment for senior and special needs canines. Through rescue, foster, adoption, education and hospice; we create secure nurturing homes for them to live out their twilight years. Most of our rescues come to us because their owner has passed away or has moved into a nursing home situation. As long as the dog is healthy enough to handle a transition into a new home then we do our best to find the perfect forever home. If the dog is not healthy enough then they live out whatever time they have left here at our sanctuary knowing unconditional love until the very end.
Our Goals 1. To RESCUE senior and special needs canines that have been displaced from their home or abandoned for any reason; until they are adopted or to live out their life at the sanctuary. 2. To build a FOSTER home network to help us place more senior canines until they find their forever homes. 3. To provide EDUCATION to the public on the benefits of ADOPTING and caring for aging canines. 4. To find loving homes that will provide HOSPICE care for senior canines to live out the rest of their lives in the company of other human and animal companions, for whatever time they have left.
