Review for Sanctuary for Senior Dogs, Cleveland, OH, USA
Although I have no personal experience with the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs, I have followed them on social media for several years, share their postings, and many of their stories of adoptions, and their forever residents. As the former "mom" to a rescued Senior Black Lab, Bandit went to the Rainbow Bridge last year, I know the value of our senior pets. Bandit was unwanted, overweight, and abused when we rescued and adopted him. He had every right to shut down, be unsociable, and hold an attitude towards people. But that wasn't our Bandit. He went through therapy dog training with me, and we became a therapy dog team volunteering with seniors, veterans and children in reading programs. Bandit co-authored a published book with me, and despite the hardships he suffered, he was truly a wonderdog. This is what The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs recognizes in older, unwanted dogs. The Sanctuary allows them to live their lives in dignity, with care, and those who can be adopted, finds them forever homes. and promotes the benefits of seniors. Their donations are used for healthcare, providing food and comfort, and a clean, safe environment, as well as all the other costs incurred with rescues and adoption. They are located near my old hometown, and I would surely volunteer there, if I lived nearby. Instead I'm two thousand miles away. But I have so many friends and family in their area, that I share their story and adoption and rescue dogs on my social media. As I grow older, I will always love a puppy or young dog, but what I really want is the comfort of a senior dog who is content with a nice walk, staying warm and cared for at my side. Here is a photo of our treasured senior, Bandit!
