This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on Grand Paws Senior Sanctuary in Acton, CA.
From the Grand Paws Senior Sanctuary website
Grand-Paws mission is to rescue primarily large breed senior dogs who’ve been abandoned. We rescue from local high-kill shelters and let them live out their lives in our sanctuary or in one of our wonderful foster homes: happy, safe, and loved.
When appropriate, we attempt to find permanent, loving homes for them. However, we choose the large breed seniors because they are the least likely to be adopted from the shelters.
People don’t realize the joy you receive from rescuing a senior dog. Seeing an old dog renew some of their spunk when they’re given proper nutrition, exercise, and love is extraordinary. They may be a little slow, hard of hearing, have deteriorating eyesight, and a graying muzzle, but there’s still charm and dignity in these old dogs yet. Despite their condition they never feel sorry for themselves. Young or old, they all have so much to offer and so much love to give.
Grand-Paws is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization rescuing large breed senior dogs.
Seniors have a lot to teach, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)

Chico is the sweetest dog, who came from a sad situation. He was living on the streets of Tijuana, and he was going blind from malnutrition. Something we had never seen, a dog can lose his sight from a lack of certain vitamins and minerals. Chico‘s sight is completely back in his left eye and almost fully recovered in his right eye. He’s guessed to be about 8-years old.
Chico has lots of energy, love everyone he meets, his tail never stops. He gets along great with other dogs, but no cats. Chico sits for his treats before you even ask him to, still working on the leash training, he’s just so excited it takes him a lap to settle down and walk with you. Chico is a good boy and deserves to finally have a real home.
