Review for Lily's Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary, Petaluma, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Some people don't understand my love for dogs, and so I just work in the background helping them; supporting them through my donations and for the last several months as a volunteer at Lily's.
In 2012, I attended an event at Dairydell Canine and met two senior dogs and a couple of volunteers from Lily's Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary and my heart went out to them! It was very touching to meet them, and my heart melted right there on the spot! Because I had a two year old Lab, having another dog wasn't an option for me. So I donated dollars to them every chance I could, and kept my dream of volunteering in the back of my mind.
When I retired from my part time job, I decided to find out just what I had to do to become a volunteer for Lily's. I filled out the "volunteer" application and then came the orientation meeting! This was my dream come true! Lily's is located in a beautiful country area that contributes to the serenity these dogs need in their lives, and I have been a "Cuddle" volunteer that has given me a special place to get my "dog fix" on a regular basis!
Lily's is volunteer run, and it is amazing to see everyone giving their time for this special place! And the best part for me is seeing "my" dogs each time I am at Lily's, both the dogs I sponsor with donations and those coming to find their new home.
Lily's is truly a sanctuary for senior dogs.
