Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Frankie and Andy’s Place is a unique combination of senior dog shelter and emotional healing center for troubled humans. A beautiful log cabin, nestled in a picturesque Barrow County woodland setting, Frankie and Andy’s Place is home to a small number of gentle, loving senior dogs who have been cast aside by their humans and yet who still have many valuable gifts to share ..... These gifts of sympathy, time, reassurance and unconditional love are then shared with troubled humans in an atmosphere of calm and acceptance to help them mend. Frankie and Andy’s Place ....... a healing collaboration between man and his best friend.

Results: Long before the cabin had even been delivered, Connie Woofford contacted me to ask about our plans for Frankie and Andys Place as she had read about it on our Facebook page. She wanted to know if we would be interested in taking senior dogs to the Adult Day center in Winder, where adults of all ages but requiring supervision, could go to give their carers a respite for the day. I told her then that we would need to wait until we were up and running to check this out; last Thursday, due to her dogged persistence, she and I went to meet the folks there and introduce them to our mission and the tour de force that is...ERROL FLYNN! When we got there, it was after lunch, and we toured the facility, met the staff, and were able to meet some of the visitors. One older gentleman, who introduced himself as Chuck Norris, ( you can only imagine how long he and I traded pretend ninja kicks....it was too much fun, honestly) wanted to hold Errol Flynn because he reminded him of his childhood dog, Trixie. Of course, we heard him say this a few times, but both Connie and I were struck by the emotion it evoked in him....how simply touching this four pound ball of love seemed to happily transport him back to halcyon days. Another fan of Errol was a sweet lady who isn't allowed to have dogs at her care facility, but missed having the touch and love of one in her life. But for both Connie and I, the most unbelievable moment came when a young lady, who was quadriplegic and sitting in a wheel chair with her head tilted back, unable to speak or move her hands, was asked if she would like to meet Errol. She looked at him, their eyes met, we lifted her hand to gently stroke Errol, and her face lit up like a Christmas tree. She started to laugh with such genuine glee, her whole face shone like a golden light, her mouth was so far open in a smile, the carers were floored! You see, she had not been feeling well when she arrived that day, and they had been concerned for her. We lifted Errol to her neck and allowed him to nuzzle her gently, and she purred with delight. She cannot make a coherent sound, but she laughed! She truly laughed! Folks, if these dogs do nothing useful ever again, what we saw on that day, with that young lady, made every single thing worth it. Errol Flynn, this little four pound dynamo, walked into a room, owned it and made everyone feel better. He spread the love like Gandhi, touching hearts everywhere he went, allowing himself to be passed from one person to the next, hugging and snuggling his way into their hearts. 15 people became balls of mush at his very presence. Because of confidentiality guidelines, we are not allowed to post pictures yet, or give names; we are hoping that will come soon. We will be visiting, at this our second adult day center location, there every week starting on Monday, and I cannot even begin to thank Connie for the work that she has done to get this going. (November 19 2016)

Target demographics: Rescue senior dogs

Geographic areas served: Winder GA and surrounding environs

Programs: We have long believed that dogs come into our lives, not just to provide friendship and comfort, but to teach us, to open our eyes to what is really important in life, and to help us cope with the stresses of everyday living. The beauty and serenity of this environment combined with the wisdom and empathy of some of our working dogs has brought comfort and relief to a number of humans dealing with anxiety, fear, self-harming issues and bipolar disorders. All under the watchful eye and guidance of an experienced mental health professional. This shelter provides a home like environment, furnished comfortably, with sleeping quarters for the dogs, but also a main living area where they can come together and mingle with their carers and work with whoever needs them.

I have been involved with FAAP since the idea was made into a reality. Penny Miller has this vision to help our senior dogs, who have been discarded by their owners, and give them a piece of heaven at FAAP. So many volunteers share her dream! So many donors honor the dogs and what this “sanctuary” stands for. Once you see these dogs THRIVE and RESPOND to the love, care and DIGNIFIED REDPECT they receive, you will want to be part of this rescue. I have been involved with helping dogs for 14 years and Thought I would never see anything as wonderful as FAAP. Please accept this heartfelt message to keep this rescue as one of the most important.

Frankie and Andy's Place can hardly be described without a big smile on my face and tear in my eye. These old senior dogs have grabbed my heart and I guarantee all the volunteers feel this when they visit. These old dogs show us how to live life with happiness. They hobble around the yard, some blind, some with cancer and some just frail and arthritic, but not a word of complaint. These dogs would have been euthanized at shelters, had not Penny and others rallied to save them and bring them to the old dogs home to live in comfort and peace. This is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Hard to see them go over the rainbow bridge, when one dies, but we find comfort knowing their last days were happy and adored. Come see this place, when in Winder, Ga. Marilyn Ranck

This is one of Georgia’s true gems! It is rare to find a non-profit that appeals to but more importantly helps such a wide variety of benefactors! A true collaboration to help humans and canines alike. When I say help, that is not limited to helping those in need...it helps ppl like myself feel good about volunteering and helping in any way possible! That intrinsically rewarding feeling that I know I share with its many volunteers that does not have a monitory value, and yet is still priceless!

A healing place. A loving place. A warm home in North Georgia for old dogs that would have died otherwise. As a volunteer I am the one blessed by these senior dogs every week as they come running, hobbling or limping to greet me with tails wagging. They don't know it when they first arrive, but they figure it out quickly that they matter and are safe,respected, needed and mostly loved! Rescuing senior dogs and "hospice" cases means some won't be with us long, but for those sugar snouts when it's time for their walk over the Rainbow Bridge when they're at Frankie and Andy's Place they are loved across with all the dignity and gentleness that we can. In loving memory of Cody and Donald.

This is one awesome volunteer opportunity! I feel as though I've had a mini vacation every time I go. All the dogs are amazing with their own personality. Everything from tiny to large but all with sweet personalities. Senior dogs are difficult to get adopted but these dogs prove they have much more to offer!

I love taking one or two to Retirement Facilities to visit. The residents love them and you
see smiles on there faces and an occasional giggle when the get a kiss!

We can ALWAYS use additional laps for cuddling plus please willing to visit with us! It is always the best part of my week!

I volunteer here so I know for a fact they do exactly what they say they do..rescue senior dogs and give them the best care possible for the rest of their days. They really do sleep on couches, chairs, and comfortable beds. We rub bellies, scratch ears, give treats, or whatever else the dog tells us they like. An amazing place!

Frankie and Andy’s Place is my get away place where I spend time volunteering with these wonderful, loving seniors. Each one of these senior dogs has their own story, whether given up on because they were sick, abandoned or just had gotten old and not wanted anymore. FAAP gives these beautiful souls a place to live out the remainder of their lifes. To be able to interact with other dogs, eat home cooked meals and just love on the humans who volunteer there to love on them. There is so much love there, you feel it when you walk in the door, a welcoming bark, a tail wag and a welcoming committee meeting you at the door. A little slice of heaven for the seniors who live there and us human volunteers.

I volunteered for the first time Frankie and Andy's Place a week ago. What a wonderful place for the rescued seniors to live out the remainder of their years. It's a warming and loving environment. The cabin is so cozy and you can tell the dogs love it there. I volunteered to spend time and love on these seniors and I left with so much more. They stole my heart. Frankie and Andy's is a loving, caring place and the owners Penny and Pete have done a fantastic job.

Frankie and Andy’s Place is Heaven on Earth for senior dogs that have been abandoned or other circumstances that leave them homeless. At Frankie and Andy’s they receive round the clock love, home cooked meals, special diets when needed and total care including addressing medical needs.

I love Frankie and Andy’s Place so much because it is almost like the movie COCOON for dogs. Senior dogs who have been abandoned at high kill animal shelters are brought here and given the very best veterinarian care, homemade food, constant love and attention by volunteers and staff and have a beautiful place to live out their days. They live so much longer than ever expected. They get to go visit retirement homes and other groups to share their love and bring joy into so many lives.

The founders/owners have the purest heart for senior dogs (and all dogs) that my husband and I have ever seen. The dogs are cared for by only the most compassionate, diligent, faithful, accountable volunteers, many of whom I know personally to be women of the highest caliber, character and integrity. The dogs live in the comfiest of quarters with soft beds, cage-free (each one very carefully temp tested), truly a home environment. We support this charity and see it — and the fruit of it — every single week. The Millers not only have the pure, huge heart, they also have the highest standards of excellence in care and also in business and management. Truly the complete model for any animal charity, they far surpass all others in every area.

I have always said if I won the lottery I would buy a lot of land and take in all the dogs that no one wanted. Well I will probably never win the lottery but I am able to live out my dreams by volunteering at Frankie & Andy's Place. The senior dogs there are so greatful for the chance to have a place they can call there forever home, and to be truly loved by all the volunteers that come into their lives. The dogs give back what they are given tenfold, and to get to be a part of this is an amazing experience.

I have the utmost respect for The Miller’s and this lovely seniors’ home. We are not ones who trust easily, especially when it’s our dogs care. But this family has only the dogs well being- their entire well being, as priority - not just keeping them fed and safe. Their focus is giving those innocent souls a great time and the finest life possible. I’m so happy to recommend them to everyone I meet. The senior pups who are there will receive the best treatment and can live the remainder of their life knowing love and care, as all dogs deserve.

I found about this wonderful place last year and am amazed by what they do. I read so many stories about people giving their dog to a shelter when it gets to old and hard to take care of.

What they are doing at Frankie and Andy’s is amazing and not just for the dogs. They truly care!

Recently, I attended a Yoga class at Frankie and Andy's Place. I mean, who wants to do yoga with goats?? Yoga with dogs, however, was so much fun! Before I left, I bought a couple of their t-shirts.
Later that day, I was wearing one of the shirts when I went to grab a bite to eat. I noticed an elderly woman who was eating with a somewhat younger man and woman. She was eating her meal but didn't have much to say to the others.

When I got up to leave, she saw the logo on the back of my shirt. She asked if I worked at Frankie and Andy's place. I told her no, but I had just enjoyed a yoga class there and met a new resident, Victor Mature. She told me that she was a resident at one of the nursing homes where the dogs from F&A's Place visit. As I was waiting for my husband to join me, I heard her engage the others in an excited conversation about the dogs and how much the residents enjoyed their visits.
I know that F&A's place brings joy to many people who are like this sweet little lady.

We first found Penny & her crew through a fundraiser, then took a tour of the Frankie & Andy’s place facility. It’s a scourge on our society that senior dogs are deemed unwanted at any point in their life.

An amazing facility that takes in discarded senior dogs left at shelters that would be unadoptable and most certainly would face death. These dogs are given a loving home and loving voluteers to work with them and love them Every day. They are treated with the love and respect they deserve in their last few years and given all the medical care they need. Some of the dogs are used as therapy dogs are going around ti nursing homes to cheer up the lives of senior adults and the adults are excited at every visit and shower the sweet senior dogs with love. Its truly a magical place, there is a reason the senior cabin has the nickname of Cocoon the dogs begin a new longer life.

As a frequent donor and occasional volunteer, I can't speak highly enough of the Millers, the board, and the amazing volunteers that provide so much love and care to these seniors. All the seniors chosen to live here are renewed, and given the love many lacked. Their health is monitored by top notch doctors and veterinary staff that are also so giving of their time to these senior cuddle bugs. The welfare of these seniors is at the heart of everything this organization does. The joy they bring to senior adults in the community, troubled youth and to all the volunteers who get to spend time loving on them is priceless.

If you have ever heard the expression "a little slice of heaven" and thought does that really exist? Well it does at Frankie and Andy's Place. It is truly an unbelievable place. They take dogs that others have given up on for one reason or another and give them that second chance that they truly deserve. Each dog that is there has a story of where they have come from. Some are incredibly heartbreaking some just make you shake your head. But one thing is obvious these dogs have come from broken hearts and entered Frankie and Andy's place and been wrapped in love and are now thriving. They all truly have glows about them and a bounce in their step. The dogs there are truly angels in fur. They all have such huge hearts and such a healing power about them. It's amazing to look at those dogs and know the heartbreak they have gone through and to see what they are now.

I could rave about how amazing and healing the dogs are but the staff and volunteers there as well are incredible. It is obvious that their hearts are truly in this mission and that is all about the dogs. They give so much of themselves to make this incredible endeavor thrive.

I could not think of a better place to donate time or money too. This organization truly shows that old dogs have worth and value and they focus on spreading that love those dogs have to give to make this world a better place. Thank you Frankie and Andy's place for what you do and thank you for giving these oldies the 2nd chance they deserve!

I was there the day this cabin was delivered. I never knew it would change my life. Animals have always been a passion. But this place is the movie Cocoon for animals. Where can you take an old guy with bad skin , wobbly legs, and lumps that isn't expected to live 2 months? And 8 months later he is soft and running to you with dirt face kisses ! Or a 16 yr old Doxi with heart condition, rotten teeth and a large tumor hanging of his chest. You get his teeth cleaned the tumor removed. He goes to the Senior Center and spreads love and joy for 4 months. He knew joy till his time here was done. They have purpose they didn't know they had. Some go to visit the Senior Centers. That's is their job to share their stories that we all have purpose regardless of our abilities. Some stay at the cabin and have other jobs by bringing joy to volunteers. Or just an hug and kiss when you need to recharge yourself from life. But they have brought me an amazing extended family . I am truly blessed to be part of something so magical .

Pete and Penny started Frankie and Andy's Place with a dream of helping senior dogs live out their lives in comfort and love. They and their volunteers provide a much needed service for these precious dogs.
Some of the canine residents make a trip to the Senior assisted living and nursing homes weekly. Thus, spreading love and good cheer to the human population as well.
Thanks to Penny and Pete for providing this sanctuary for senior dogs of all breeds.

Wow! Today was my first official day as a volunteer at Frankie and Andy's. From the moment I got to the cabin door, i was greeted by several senior dogs just waiting to be loved on. Their cabin is awesome, set up with comfy sofas and doggie beds for them to lounge in comfort. Just out the door is a beautiful fenced in yard just for the furkids to roam and relax. It truly made my heart happy to be part of Frankie and Andys. I met two other wonderful volunteers while there. It's such a "homey" feel. I signed up for a 2 hour slot but before I knew it, i had been there 3 hours. I only wish more rescues could be like Frankie and Andy's. I am looking forward to my next day spending with all the special senior fur kids. What an awesome place.

Frankie and Andy's Place is heaven on earth for senior dogs that have been abandoned by their owners and wound up in county shelters. These loving souls are pulled from the shelters and immediately taken for vet checks and receive any medical help they need. Next stop is Frankie and Andy's place to meet their new friends both four and two legged and to see where they will be living out their days. Inside the cabin they have comfy couches, dog beds, blankets and they get the best food and supplements to keep them as strong and healthy as they can be. Many wonderful volunteers come to spend time loving on these sweet souls, taking them for walks on the beautiful property or just spending time outdoors with them in their own beautiful fenced acreage. Don't forget rides to the local senior home to spend time with some wonderful older folks, or just a nice ride to get a treat or enjoy some scenery while letting the wind blow their ears! I hope when I become a senior, there will be a place like Frankie and Andy's place for me!

Just before entering heaven is the Rainbow Bridge and just before crossing the bridge is Frankie & Andy's Place...a sanctuary where lost and forgotten canine souls enjoy loving care from dedicated volunteers, healthy and delicious meals, clean comfy beds to snuggle in...all in a beautiful cabin in the woods begging to be explored. This is an extrordinary home for end of life senior canines, who, in turn, bring companionship and joy to lonely and troubled folks in the community. How perfect!

Frankie and Andy's Place is one of a kind. This place truly is a haven for the senior dogs and people alike. These dogs are given the chance to live out their lives in a peaceful, serene environment surrounded by loving volunteers who are devoted to their care and quality of life. Not only do the dogs benefit from Frankie and Andy's Place, but the humans as well. These dogs offer support, emotional healing, acceptance and a sense of belonging to a "group" or "family". This organization is hands down the best out there!
