I could write a book about how wonderful this place is, and how it has profoundly changed my life. I have been a volunteer here for almost three years. If I didn’t live 50+ miles away I would be here every day. Penny and Peter Miller had a dream to create a sanctuary for senior dogs, they surrounded themselves with an incredible group of people and made it happen. It is amazing to see these incredible dogs, most who have been cast off after a lifetime of service to their people, come into the cabin and become part of this family. They are given love by a huge group of volunteers, fed the best food, sleep on soft comfy beds, and receive the best medical attention by Gwinnett Animal Hospital. It is heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye, but the tears quickly go away and become smiles because we know they lived their best days here at Frankie and Andy’s Place.
I think of Frankie and Andy's Place as a little slice of Heaven in a beautiful cabin in the woods, a sanctuary for senior dogs and the people who volunteer here. I volunteer here twice a week and I can't think of any better way to spend my time. To see the transformation the dogs make...some pulled out of shelters the day they would have been euthanized is life changing. There is really something special about a senior dog. I know they all have stories to tell, you can see it in their eyes. We know that some of them may not be with us for years, but their time here is probably the best time of their lives. As an added bonus, I've met the best, most caring group of people who work here as volunteers. I know we all hope to expand on this endeavor so we can save more senior dogs in the future! Thank you Penny, Pete Miller and crew for making this home for seniors happen.
Such a great rescue! They take in the elderly dogs that no one else wants and allow these dogs to live the remainder of their lives knowing they are loved and cared for.
Such a wonderful way to help senior pups! They are a truly an outstanding organization!
This is most wonderful place - full of love and happiness for Senior dogs that need it the most!
F&A Place excels in every way!
Love this organization and all it does for senior dogs, senior citizens, really for people of all ages. FAAP gives back
to the community in so many ways. Love their Facebook posts - brightens everyone’s days.
Frankie and Andy’s Place is truly heaven on earth for these sweet seniors. The love and care for these dogs is truly immeasurable ..... Not only do the provide a wonderful end to the dogs story they bring joy into the lives of the people they visit as therapy dogs. What a blessing to all❤️
This is an amazing place for unwanted seniors. Frankie & Andy’s Place takes these wonderful souls and makes sure the test of their days are full of love and comfort. They also use these amazing dogs in the community as therapy dogs at the retirement homes. What a true gift with these angels and what a blessing!
I volunteer when I can at this amazing sanctuary for older dogs. Such caring and compassionate staff and volunteers are a rare breed. Frankie and Andy’s Place has them in spades.
Not only does FAAP breathe new life into the animals they care for by providing them with the basics of shelter and food, they take caring for animals to the next level! These dogs are showered with an abundance of love from lots of great volunteers, they find purpose through their service to others, and they an provided with the care they deserve in their last days of life with comfy beds and couches, physical therapy options, and plenty of spacious place outside to roam and be a dog. What a gift to senior dogs! Thank you, FAAP!
Frankie and Andy’s Place is the WHOLE PACKAGE! Its love, compassion, insight into dogs, incredibly motivated and dedicated staff of volunteers, and amazing sponsors make this a paradise for senior dogs in need of a caring, serene environment that makes up for their too many years of abuse, neglect, or otherwise difficult lives. FAAP is our favorite charity and we are very happy to support its important mission.
I have volunteered at FAAP for going on 3 years and am continually impressed and proud of the organization and wonderful home for senior dogs that Penny and Peter Miller have built. It should be the model for all rescues around the world. These senior pups get a new chance at a wonderful life and, in turn, provide emotional support for senior humans in the area, who they visit and bring smiles to on a weekly basis. Just a wonderful, miraculous and magical little piece of heaven for all involved!!
Frankie and Andy's Place is a slice of heaven for the senior dogs that they rescue from terrible conditions. Staffed by volunteers who adore the pups and supported totally by donations. As a volunteer myself, I look forward to every moment that I spend there!! Taking these dogs out into the community, in turn, brings such joy to the hearts of so many senior men and women. This charity stands above all the rest in the way it helps so many seniors - dogs and humans alike!!
Ministering to animals when they are alone or in their later years reflects the boundless limits of love which we possess and do not always extend, so kudos to Frankie and Andy's Place!
Frankie and Andy's Place is not a fairy tale, it is the real thing. Senior dogs are given the respect and love that they deserve when their "owners" can no longer care for them. All of the volunteers make their remaining senior years full of food, comfort and fun! Thank you Frankie and Andy's Place for being a shining star to many.

Frankie and Andy's Place exceeded my expectations. Their level and quality of care far surpasses any other rescue group that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Penny and her team have now pulled four senior dogs from the shelter that I work at. Not only were they all greeted with open arms, but they were immediately treated like members of the family and I know that they will be given the most superb and loving care for the rest of their lives. I cannot say enough good things about Penny and her team.
I love Frankie and Andy's Place because I have a 15 year old granddaughter who is autistic. Jess sometimes has difficulty communicating with people but she has NO problems communicating with her four legged friends at the cabins. She loves to visit her senior fur baby friends and talk to them and they respond to her immediately. Every time we go she has a new "best friend". The cabins bring joy and comfort she can't find anywhere else. We volunteer there as much as we possibly can, we just love it there!
If there is a heaven on earth for senior dogs, Frankie and Andys Place is it. I have been volunteering there for about six months and it is remarkable to see these dogs come who have been rejected for whatever reason, neglected, forgotten, abused, forlorn and they come to the cabin where they are loved, and well fed, and receive the best medical care. The change in these dogs can not be put into words. They are so sweet, so loving, they ask nothing of you and give so much in return.
I bring my 14 yr. old granddaughter with me. She's autistic but when she is with these dogs, her world is complete. She can remember name, she helps walk them, she loves taking care of them. It's the favorite part of her week.
These dogs that no one wanted bring so much joy to so many people.
God bless Penny Miller and everyone else who works with me at the cabin but especially God bless our precious fur babies.
Dirk, Dooper and I LOVE Frankie and Andy's Place!!!
These folks are awesome! My favorite experience was yoga with the senior dogs. We had a ball and the pups enjoyed it, too!
I don’t have a story but I have been following this amazing place on FB! What they are doing for elderly dogs and elderly humans is beautiful and amazing. There should be more places such as Frankie’s and Andy’s
