Senior dogs, especially those with medical problems or disabilities, face a much greater chance of euthanasia at shelters than younger dogs because it is difficult to find adopters for them due to their shorter additional life expectancy and unknown veterinary costs.
Most of these wonderful senior dogs will be able to live happily with a good quality of life if given a chance. They make wonderful companions because they are mature, calm and loving.
The Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary in Tennessee does everything they can to help senior dogs live out their retirement years as a loved family member.
On the sanctuary’s Facebook page, they introduce you to all the old dogs living there. It’s probably going to be your new favorite rescue organization…
“Mildred found a seat on which to sit…. it’s Captain Ron’s dinner bowl”
“No introductions needed”
“Harley and Smiley taking an afternoon nap together”
“Even though it was really cold out this morning, everyone wanted to come outside for a little while”
“Bentley and Paris make such a cute little couple”
“Here’s Leo… in his element. He loves the snow!”
“Golden Guys Harley and Toby”
They even make awesome videos to help their old friends get noticed.
