We just were referred to this lovely sanctuary for these pups in need. From what we saw, these dogs are loved and cared for...what every dog deserves.
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. It breaks my heart. To have a place where some of these dogs can go to live out the rest of their lives is truly beautiful. What they are doing at Frankie and Andy’s is amazing and not just for the dogs. They truly care!
Penny Miller and her husband, Pete provide a loving and caring canine 'rest home' for ailing and aged dogs to live out whatever time they have left. This is truly God at work here on earth when it comes to helping our animal friends.
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. We are thankful that Pete, Penny & staff have taken this mission on, giving these valued family members a place to spend their golden years in luxury & being taken care of!!
My dog and I have a close understanding of Frankie and Andy’s Place and we are aware of the hearts, minds, and intent that went into its creation. Love is at the center of the motivation for everything about this compassionate nonprofit. It’s ALL for the senior dogs who are fortunate enough to be able to live out their lives at Frankie and Andy’s Place. It should be the model for senior care of all species!
This organization takes excellent care of senior dogs in need, giving them a loving home and environment that provides comfort and care for all their needs as they age. But they don’t stop there. They reach out to the community by providing an avenue for volunteers to serve and for senior citizens to feel the love of these special dogs. To me, that’s a win-win-win!
Frankie and Andy's Place deserves 10 stars. The volunteers and staff are truly amazing. The 24 hour care these dogs receive , from the home cooked meals, weekly outing to the Senior Centers , to the Veterinary attention , just to name a few, is superior . Visit Frankie and Andy's Place to see what a wonderful environment they are providing the senior dogs.
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.
They are kind, sincere & generous in finding dogs that need comfort in their older years. What a wonderful group of people to focus on those that get left behind.
Hearts of gold! The love & care they give to these animals as they are in their senior years is unimaginable! These dogs are blessed beyond measure for being cared for at Frankie & Andy’s Place. 5 stars is not enough stars!!
This unique organization is such an incredible gift to both the dogs and the humans it rescues. One only needs to spend a short time in the cabin with these wonderful beings to feel the love and positive energy that vibrates through it and through them. The transformation that takes place is absolutely indescribable. You really have to witness and become a part of it all to understand.
Frankie and Andy’s Place is not only necessary, but it is imperative to the surrounding communities that it embraces and graces.
There is no other place on earth like Frankie and Andy's Place! The feeling that you experience here will validate for you all that is truly right in this world. Peace, unconditional love, acceptance, purpose....... it all awaits you in this beautiful setting, wrapped in loving packages of sugar-dipped faces, fur and four paws!
Penny is absolutely amazing! The time and energy she puts into these dogs is incredible. Such an amazing place!
I just love this organization!! I love that it’s a second chance for those forgotten best friends, I love the dogs that are rescued and what they offer to the community and the volunteers and I love the people who organized this wonderful organization! It is a truely honest, we are what you see nonprofit, and what I see is beautiful people with huge hearts who just want the best for all senior dogs. Absolutely number one!!
Amazing place with amazing people! They work with animals when no one else will. Love the place and what they stand for.
What a happy place for senior dogs to comfortably live out their lives until it is their time to cross over rainbow bridge. This place is exceptional and all animals deserve the chance to grow old with dignity and be loved as they are here. Best charity around that serves mans best friend.
I went to volunteer with my daughter in law at Frankie and Andys Place twice. It's such a loving and caring place for these senior dogs who most likely would have been euthanized in shelters. Most people going to adopt don't want to take on a senior dog and the problems that advancing age bring. I can tell you that these dogs are genuinely loved and well cared for. God bless Penny Miller and her wonderful volunteers!
