Older Dogs Need Homes Too. Did you know that More than 99% of the applications we receive are for young dogs? Puppies get multiple applications. Have you considered an older dog? They are generally more mellow, don’t chew up your furniture, easier to potty train if not already, don’t need as much attention and do better in a home with younger children or older human being. This is rescue. Not all the dogs that come into rescues are young. Older dogs need homes too. Right now no one wants them, and they get killed in a shelter. Would you consider opening up your heart and home to save their lives? You can choose to foster them or adopt them. To do so please fill out our application here and mention you are interested in helping an older dog.
