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.

I'm a sweet old pittie just looking for some snacks and some love. I was a transfer from IACS so not much is known about my past but the staff does know I'm a love bug. I haven't had a chance to meet any pups here yet but if you have one at home, we could do an intro here to see if we're a good fit.
