FAAP is an amazing dream come true not only for its residents but for the volunteers as well. We all dream of one day rescuing dogs, winning the lottery and opening a facility. Pete and Penny didn't dream, THEY MADE IT HAPPEN. Those animals that were once neglected, starving, dumped at the shelter for being "old" or for a new puppy are given a chance to live life as God intended them to; by our sides. The only thing better than opening another similar facility in the future would be to spend time here and love on these sweet, so grateful dogs! Consider donating to this amazing group! I've never met a better group, and the people are nice too! ;)
Frankie and Andy's Place is a dream come true for senior dogs in need of rescue! It's a cozy cabin surrounded by woods, a home environment for dogs that have been given up on by others or in need of some love and care in the years when they should be most valued. Soft fluffy beds and couches, homemade food, and lots of space to stretch out and enjoy attention from all the wonderful volunteers that love these seniors the way they deserve is what the lucky rescue dogs will find here. What a blessing to the dogs and to the community this rescue is!
The people who run this place and those who volunteer are remarkable! Their deep and sincere love for the dogs is palpable. I cannot imagine a more loving setting for any dogs, but especially for the older dogs who no longer have homes of their own.
I've followed this organization since its inception and could not be more impressed with the work they're doing! Thank God for organizations like this that help save these beautiful dogs!
Frankie and Andy's Place is a singularly special life-saving dream come true for old souls who have loved loyally and given everything but who find themselves without a warm, caring, loving home in which to live out their lives. I love old dogs and they are true gems. Unfortunately, some people don't see them as the wonderful angels they are. An exception is the owners, staff and volunteers of Frankie and Andy's Place. I volunteer at Frankie and Andy's and enjoy spending time giving and receiving love with residents. These lucky dogs enjoy a home, a beautiful and peaceful environment, comfort, excellent care and food and they procide unconditional love and a source of happines for anyone lucky enough to spend time with them. I wholeheartedly recommend volunteering with Frankie and Andy's Place...you will receive more than you give.
A dog is man's best friend and a man is a dog's best friend. Nowhere is this more evident than at Frankie and Andy's Place. The senior dogs in this center are rescued from shelters or other negative situations. They are given comfort, love, and security. In turn, they give those same things back to humans at senior centers and other situations where a little unconditional love and warmth is needed. The happiness on the dogs faces is undeniable and the love and dignity with which they are treated is amazing.
The Millers and their volunteers love dogs and are able to make the last days, weeks, or months of a dogs life a little piece of heaven in earth.
Beautiful atmosphere. Beautiful caregivers. Beautiful dogs.. We should all be so blessed to live our last good and bad days in such an environment surrounded with so much beauty and peace! Such an extraordinary mission of love.
Frankie and Andy's Place is a non-profit charity that answers prayers offered for many frosty-faced canines in need from all over the northeast GA area. It's a cabin nestled in the woods, offering rescued senior dogs a quiet place of repose--with love and nurturing from an all-volunteer staff as well as home cooked meals that meet the needs of each guest. As one of many volunteers and donors who enjoy spending time with our beloved seniors, I receive much more from them than I could ever give.
Great place for rescues! They help in a community where the local county animal shelter has to put down a lot of animals. They help these animals find a forever home instead.
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.
As a volunteer for Frankie and Andy's Place, I've seen first-hand the transformation that takes place in our senior dogs and the humans with whom they come in contact. It's nothing short of a gift from God. The dog residents were lost, forgotten or just plain given up on until they found new life and purpose at the little cabin in the woods. Everyone and everything wants to feel loved and needed. These dogs not only receive love, but give back in so many ways. Whether it's visiting our community's senior citizens every Wednesday, or just being there for therapy groups, they teach us all the importance of finding purpose in life. I'm sure everyone who visits, volunteers or benefit from their therapy has their own rewards. For me personally, it's about appreciating life in the moment and getting back up no matter how life may beat you down. I truly believe in the work being done here. I can't wait to see what's next around the corner. My heart is full and I'm just so very grateful that my path has led me to this place. It's a unique approach to care for those who might otherwise have been left behind.
I've volunteered at shelters in the past, but the people who give of their time here are simply the best; caring, generous of spirit and absolutely dedicated to providing the best environment and future for both man and man's best friends in their most desperate hours.
