Review for Frankie and Andy's Place , Winder, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Frankie and Andy’s Place is a little slice of Heaven in the North Georgia woods! Two cabins filled with the most amazing senior dogs, volunteers and staff imaginable. I have had the good fortune of being a volunteer there since the beginning four years ago. We take in the cast-offs, lost, most needy senior dogs who would not likely be rescued or adopted by anyone else. Each dog receives the best vet care from our partners at Gwinnett Animal Hospital. They are treated for any medical conditions and receive follow-up care on a regular basis. They are fed the best food... mostly home cooked at the cabins. They sleep on soft beds or furniture just like most family pets. They get to wander around the yards, and when the weather gets warm they get to visit the swimming pool at the adjacent boarding facility. They love to swim, and it’s so good for their old joints! They also work in the community spreading joy at several local Adult Senior Centers and schools, where we hope to educate the children on the importance of proper care for their family pets. It’s very difficult when we have to say good-bye to one of our senior dogs, but we do so knowing that they lived the best life during their time at Frankie and Andy’s Place.

I could write a book about how wonderful this place is, and how it has profoundly changed my life. I have been a volunteer here for almost three years. If I didn’t live 50+ miles away I would be here every day. Penny and Peter Miller had a dream to create a sanctuary for senior dogs, they surrounded themselves with an incredible group of people and made it happen. It is amazing to see these incredible dogs, most who have been cast off after a lifetime of service to their people, come into the cabin and become part of this family. They are given love by a huge group of volunteers, fed the best food, sleep on soft comfy beds, and receive the best medical attention by Gwinnett Animal Hospital. It is heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye, but the tears quickly go away and become smiles because we know they lived their best days here at Frankie and Andy’s Place.

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.
