The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs is an organization that is extraordinarily honest, smart, well run, and overwhelmingly caring and loving. They care for the dogs physical, mental, and emotional well being in their careful placements from fosters to forever homes. I have had the privilege to work with them in positively training their dogs. The mere fact that they do train speaks volumes. And the love I have seen is incredible! The other thing I love about Sanctuary for Senior Dogs is they show the same respect and care for people!! Truly unique, truly worthwhile. We need more rescues like them.

The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs is just that. It is a place where abandon senior dogs get a second chance to find a loving home and people to care for them, love them, and cherish them. The volunteers, staff and board have undying devotion to seeing that each dogs needs are met be it medical, emotional, or training needs. The adoption process structured to ensure appropriate placement in loving homes. The foster families provide temporary or long term / permanent care to seniors while they wait for the right home or grow old and reach the end of their lives. The Sanctuary is a wonderful organization, filled with wonderful people and wonderful senior dogs who have so much to offer. Those resiliant seniors are the heart of this organization and the best friends anyone can ever hope for. My last four dogs have been from the Sanctuary and two of them are going strong. Hopefully I have brought them the joy they have brought me.
