Sponsor a senior dog
Just because a dog is of advanced age, it doesn't mean they are of no value. Many of these dogs have known hardship and neglect for most of their lives, living in puppy mills or hoarding situations. Many have lost hope. They deserve better.We want to provide them with the best possible care to live out their lives, but that takes money.
What does it cost to care for a senior dog . . . 60 cents a day, that’s just $18 a month to provide quality canned food (most of our seniors are toothless), medications, and flea / heartworm prevention. Just 60 cents a day to give these dogs of advanced age the care they need to enjoy the later years of their life.
