Muttville

Muttville is based in San Francisco, California and since their founding in 2007, they have rescued over 8,000 senior dogs (and counting!). Wonderful dogs with loving personalities are euthanized at shelters at staggeringly high rates, simply because of their age. Muttville's mission is to create better lives for senior dogs (age seven and older) through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education and advocacy.  

Saving Pets One at a Time

In the hopes of increasing the animal "adoption options" in Skagit County and beyond, a group of animal lovers got together in the Fall of 1999 and started a non profit alternative animal rescue and placement organization called Saving Pets One at a Time (SPOT). By increasing the options that people have, SPOT hopes that more companion animals will find loving and permanent homes. In addition, SPOT hopes to help reduce the number of homeless pets within Skagit County and beyond by insisting that all animals placed in their care are spayed or neutered.

Lionel's Legacy

Lionel's Legacy is a 501c3 non-profit San Diego-based senior dog rescue and humane education program for elementary school children inspired by a senior pit mix named Lionel. It is their goal to save and advocate for ONE senior furbaby at a time, and support anyone who is willing to do the same.

Knoxville-Knox County Council on Aging (Knox PAWS)

KnoxPAWS is a program of the Knoxville Knox County CAC/Office on Aging in Knoxville, Tennessee. Since 2004 KnoxPAWS has been matching eligible seniors with adoptable older pets. Companionship is crucial for older adults to help prevent isolation and depression.  Research indicates that pets improve seniors’ physical, emotional, and mental health.  The Knox PAWS does not house animals, but rather works with area animal shelters to match older pets with qualified senior citizens.

Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue

Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. (TSGSR) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing very old or terminally ill German Shepherd Dogs and mixed breed dogs from life-threatening situations. They accept shelter dogs and owner-surrender dogs from all of California, providing foster homes and medical treatment the dogs may have been lacking. Their efforts are critically needed as many shelters do not have the resources to provide in-depth care for large senior dogs, most of whom face uncertain futures as a result.

Fairy Tail Endings, Inc.

Fairy Tail Endings, Inc. (FTE) is dedicated to helping financially struggling families in Sarasota and Manatee counties (FL) keep their pets and provide proper care through financial aid, product and service donations, education and outreach. Pet parents already struggling to afford routine veterinary care, often feel forced to choose between surrender, euthanasia and neglect when faced with the escalating costs associated with senior and special-needs pets. In short, our mission is to keep WANTED pets healthy, happy and home with the families that love them!
