Senior Spotlight

We envision a world where every senior dog thrives, and no old dog dies alone and afraid. Ensuring senior dogs find loving, forever homes is central to that vision. There are many benefits and reasons to adopt a senior dog, and we hope to show the world what incredible companions they are.

Here are some adoptable senior dogs located across the country. Please check in with each organization to learn more about how to adopt a shelter or rescue dog.

Honey Bunny

My name's Honey Bunny, I'm ten years old and I was abandoned and left on the property to fend for myself. I won't go into the details of my past - I'd rather focus on my future. I'm staying positive and dream of being adopted by a loving family who appreciates a mature lady like me.


Recliner for one? Make it two. You can't help but giggle as Sheba "purrs" when you rub her soft tummy.  Belly rubs are her jam! Her little tail is always wagging, and she breaks into Ginger Rogers dance moves when you come home. Sheba is waiting to bless a family with all that she is!

Prince Henry

Prince Henry is 7.5 years old and has been with us since March with very little interest. He was actually adopted from IndyHumane in 2016 but returned to us this spring when his owner passed away ☹ Staff, volunteers, and his foster family love this sweet guy and we can't believe he is still here waiting for a family. Prince Henry's adoption fee has been sponsored.


Max comes with a big smile, big goofball energy, and a big love for toys that he can carry around in his mouth. This 12-year-old pooch is happy to get outside with you for a walk (with a toy, of course), or to lay down at your feet to relax. He’s 12 years old, but has the spirit of a younger pup...


Lola here! I'm an older lady with a lot of love to give. Grey Muzzle helped me heal from several mast cell tumors and I can't wait to find my forever home. I'd love a quiet home where I can relax on the couch or in the sunshine outside on a warm day. I am fine around other dogs big and small! I'...


An eight-year-old Chihuahua mix, this tempting little tidbit is Tuna. A new arrival, she is still finding her footing and developing her confidence, so she needs someone who will be patient with her progress, giving her time to adjust.  Beginning to trust in her future, she has been bravely...


Lulu is too much!  Too cute, too charming, and too precious! She is happy, independent, confident and asks very little of you.  Being adventurous, she adores casual strolls around the neighborhood, and exploring in the backyard at her own pace. After a good nap, she can be found trotting about...


      A twelve year old Beagle mix, this fine fellow is Felix. Part of Little Shelter’s Silver Paw Connection, he needs some help to navigate the world due to limited vision and hearing, although you’ll find that his sense of humor is still intact! Easygoing, with a gentle spirit, he’s the...


Samuel is a funny, sweet, engaging, and all-around well-behaved boy. He is the perfect walking companion, typically walking side-by-side with his foster parent, and is more than content waiting as they finish taking street photos. He is un-moved by dogs barking on the street but happily sniffs...
