I started as a volunteer with the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs about 6 years ago, becoming a board member a few years after that. I am so honored to be a small part of an organization that does such wonderful work. Senior dogs are so amazingly special and it is truly heartbreaking how many of them end up in dire circumstances through no fault of their own. Other reviewers have talked about all of the things that the Sanctuary does to meet the needs of these wonderful creatures, but one of the things that also impressed me was their mission to show what these dogs can still contribute to society. Almost since their beginning, the Sanctuary has had one or more senior therpay dogs actively giving back to the community by visiting nursing homes, developmental centers, library reading programs, etc. I could go on for some time about the difference the Sanctuary makes in the lives of so many deserving dogs, but right now my own 13 year old has brought me a toy and is asking to go outside.
