Review for Sanctuary For Senior Dogs, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I currently foster for the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs and absolutely love it. I have fostered for other rescue groups before and what stands out about the Sanctuary is the level of commitment they have to the dogs in their care. They spare absolutely no expense when it comes to vet care and never question whether or not to spend the money at the vet. That gives a volunteer such piece of mind. It also gives potential adopters piece of mind, knowing this dog has had their medical, social and behavioral needs addressed while in foster care. I know the vet they use is the absolute best in the area and truly cares about the well being of senior animals. The Sanctuary goes above and beyond when it comes to an animals well being.

Review for Sanctuary For Senior Dogs, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs provides hope for the most desperate animals in a shelter. It's rare for a senior to get adopted from a shelter, however, it is almost impossible for a senior with health or behavior issues to make it out alive. I have been fostering a 10 year old mixed breed dog with a treatable thyroid condition for months. I have trouble imagining she would have made it out of a shelter without the help of the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs. When she was found as a stray, she had tumors and other health issues. She can be terribly shy with people and is not one of those dogs that would stand out in a shelter. However, in a foster home she thrives. She gets to play with other dogs (which she enjoys), lay in a comfy bed, eat good food, go on walks, have her medical needs attended to and most importantly, learn that she can trust people and be part of a family again. The Sanctuary for Senior dogs gave her hope and treated her life with the respect and dignity she deserves.
