Reviews for Sanctuary for Senior Dogs
As a shelter volunteer, I have interacted with many rescues over the years, and the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs is absolutely head and shoulders above the crowd. The Sanctuary has a well-deserved positive reputation for clear communication, attention to detail, and thorough - methodical - care for the lucky old souls they welcome into their program. When Sanctuary pulls a dog, shelter volunteers breath a sigh of relief; we know that dog will receive excellent medical care, be made comfortable in a foster home, be handled only in a humane and force-free fashion, and be adopted into a wonderful family appropriate for the pet's needs. Wonderful organization I wholeheartedly stand behind.

Deborah, founder of the Sanctuary, is a highly committed individual who went out of her way to find the right dog for our family. We love our dog! Thanks, Deborah!
I see the many of the dogs the senior sanctuary rescues , fosters, and take care of very well. Many find forever homes but all find loving care.

I love this rescue as they have always been compassionate and helped senior dogs and other rescues with their mission. They are kind and a superb model of what a rescue could and should be. I honor and respect all the work they have done and the countless lives that have been saved. They really care for the dogs they rescue and all the dogs receive the best care and lots of love.
This wonderful organization does more than care for aging dogs. They educate their community which makes those caring for the dogs do much more compassionate and instrumental in the organization's success. Kudos to all of the volunteers, foster parents, adopters, and donors.
I have seldom found a rescue that takes the needs of the dogs so seriously. Dogs are always put first and they've always done a fantastic job.
I found the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs on Facebook through a friend. I look forward to seeing pictures and stories about all the dogs at the Sanctuary and especially the dogs who find forever homes. As a Mom to a senior Akita/Husky that will be 15 in January I appreciate any and all information they provide about Seniors. I especially love pictures of Leo he reminds me of my dog. The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs is awesome for all they do and all they have done!!!
Every day I read about the wonderful things Sanctuary for Senior Dogs accomplishes. They assure that the ones who give us so much love, and ask nothing in return but to be loved, get the lives they deserve. I am in awe of the work they do. They touch the heart of everyone who loves or had ever loved a dog.
I personally know the founder and know how passionate she is for senior dogs. They won't take in a dog they can't provide adequate care for. I have enjoyed going to functions and adoption events. Greying muzzles deserve love (and your donations) too!
I have adopted from The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs twice and would do it again. The dogs are cared for in foster homes prior to adoption and receive the love and medical care they need. Questions about their personalities can be easily answered because the fosters know each dog so well. Background checks on potential adopters are thorough, ensuring the best possible match. The Sanctuary truly believes in the value of seniors and adopting from them is an honor.
