Help Save a Senior!

These precious pups often arrive in bad shape and their medical rehabilitation is expensive. They deserve to live their remaining days being clean, fed, and loved. And when it is their time to go over the rainbow bridge, they will do so with dignity and knowing they mattered.

But we simply cannot do it without you. Any support you can provide makes a huge difference in their lives. We are extremely grateful for however you choose to support these darling souls and we are available to discuss charitable giving options that will help them spend their golden years being loved and cared for.

“My father’s passing from cancer created a situation that left his two middle-age small dogs in need of a new home. Lynn picked up both dogs and had them in a foster home awaiting vet visits. After their needs were handled, they were placed as a pair with their new family. I received updates and pictures as things progressed at their new home. I am certain my father is smiling wide at how well his pups have ended up. This was a great experience, and I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome in our family’s time of sorrow. Thank you so much!”
