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!
This is a little slice of heaven. Senior dogs rock. Once you hear their stories and are able to spend time with them, your aches, pains or problems seem to go away. They love a lap to snuggle on or just being near you!
This place is special! Each precious dog there has a sad story of loss and abandonment yet they won the senior dog lottery, so to speak, by being able to live out their golden years at Frankie and Andy’s Place. Despite their history of being failed by people in the past, most dogs show and provide immense love through community outreach at senior centers, day centers and beyond.
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.
I have been a volunteer at Frankie and Andys over a year now and cannot think of a better place to spend my time. The sweet seniors truly melt my heart and this rescue is exceptional in every way. I love seniors and Frankie and Andys for all they do for them
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.
I volunteer at Frankie and Andy’s Place and it is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. The minute you open the door to the cabin you are greeted with more love than you can imagine. The old souls that reside there are the sweetest creatures that God has put on this earth and to think that someone has rejected them because of their age, which is the case most times, just breaks my heart. From big ol’ Boris to teeny tiny Reese these dogs are given such love and great care. It’s so nice to know that regardless of what their past lives may have been, their final days will be filled with love, and joy and sunshine!
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’ve seen such love and knowledge in one place.
There is no better nonprofit out there and more deserving of being top rated than Frankie and Andy’s Place. Every dog is given 100% by the volunteers of this organization. All funds raised are used completely for the dogs. Each dog receives love, attention and medical care that they do deserve. It truly is my happy place on this Earth!
This nonprofit is hands down the best out there. I’ve personally been involved with Frankie and Andy’s Place for the past two years and have witnessed firsthand they truly walk the walk, every day. Everyone involved is deeply committed to ensuring these seniors have the best care and opportunities to shine and spread their love to any and everyone around.
Frankie and Andy’s place is such an amazing senior dog rescue! Such a heavenly place for these precious pups to live out the rest of their lives!! So well cared for and loved I can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is!!
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!!
I, originally, came to meet Penny and Peter Miller for help with my reactive senior dog. It was another attempt, having had several prior to it, to help my boy be a happy confident dog, again. Within about 30 minutes, the magic of Penny Miller was very evident! From that moment on, I knew that I needed to be part of her's and Pete's world and their dream for a special place to provide senior dogs, who have been thrown away by their humans for any number of reasons, a safe and loving environment for the time they might have left. This is not just a cabin in the woods, though. If there was ever a magical place that could fill your heart and soul so completely with love, laughter and pure joy, it would certainly be a cabin in the woods called Frankie And Andy's Place (FAAP)!! We have always heard that "it is better to give than to receive". In this magical place, you open your heart just a crack and the love of these senior pups rushes in. You receive so much more from them than you could ever give to them in return!
This dream of the Millers is not achieved, yet, though because there continues to be too many senior dogs in need. The dream is for more space for more dogs. It's not an attitude of if it can be done, but when it can be done!! The cabin is totally staffed by dedicated volunteers who love these seniors as much as their own pups.
The real magic, though, is what the senior dogs bestow on anyone that walks through the door. You are met by these grayed out sometimes toothless faces, bulging tumors, odd gaits due to injuries or medical issues and always happy wagging tails. It's a healing place, not only for trauma these dogs have experienced, but for human trauma, as well. These dogs visit human seniors and bring big smiles and joy to their days. Troubled teens visit the cabin and these pups give them some hope, again, making their hearts open to someone and feel safe, special and needed. It's, indeed, magic for all involved!!
None of this would ever have been possible without the immense heart, selflessness, fortitude and total dedication of Penny, Pete and the very supportive board of directors of FAAP! The inspirational leadership that Penny and Pete provide is the driving force in this magic, though! Their hearts are huge, their drive and enthusiasm is unstoppable and their love and true understanding of these four legged creatures is endless! I feel truly blessed to be able to volunteer at Frankie And Andy's Place!
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.
Wonderful place supporting senior pups care and provides a home for those senior dogs who will have difficulty finding forever homes.
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 love the transparency of this organization, the fact that they are so passionate about the care of senior doggies makes my heart so full. Plus the bonus of all the photos to see they great care they get!
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.
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!
This is by far my favorite non-profit! I love they make a difference each day and my all donation goes to saving dogs and making sure they have a wonderful existence. Penny and Pete are the most passionate defenders of dogs and I only wish I had more funds to support.
Great place...beautiful cabin nestled in the woods where senior dogs are given the love they deserve. Thanks Penny and Pete and all of the volunteers at Frankie and Andy's Place!!
Frankie and Andy’s Place is a most amazing spot for sugar-snouts. Penny and Pete are tremendous advocates for senior rescues.
Frankie and Andy's Place is family, be part of this program and your family just keeps growing!
My boys and I volunteer at this wonderful cabin in the woods. We have volunteered at animal control and therefore know how truly amazing Frankie and Andy's Place is! These precious dogs went from being sad, confused,lonely and scared to pampered pups at the cabin. We look forward to seeing our furry friends each week and we are grateful for Frankie and Andy's Place!
