Top Reasons to Adopt an Older Dog

We have three gorgeous dogs, Molly, Marco and Dora, who would make ideal companions. They aren't puppies but they have more to offer.
Molly Marco Dora

  1. Love and Loyalty!
    Chances are good that by adopting an older dog, you have rescued a wonderful, loving canine from an untimely, unfortunate and unwarranted death.
  2. Ease Of Transition
    Older dogs are mellow, relaxed and ready for a new home. They are past the puppy chewing and destruction stage and usually come with basic training.
  3. Doggie Wisdom
    Older canines have learned many of life's lessons. They know, for example, that shoes are for walking and bones are for chewing.
  4. Calmness
    Most senior dogs do not demand the time and attention that a younger dog does and are satisfied with casual walks and cuddling.

We Need Fosters!

"SOMEBODY needs to HELP that dog"! Somebody? That SOMEBODY is YOU!!

Imagine a world without strays or homeless dogs. We could accomplish that almost OVERNIGHT if every family would foster JUST ONE DOG. Just ONE DOG. Be just ONE dog's SOMEBODY....You won't regret it.

If you are interested in becoming a foster please apply here to become a foster.
