Senior Sunday – Monkey’s House Senior Sanctuary

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on Monkey’s House in Burlington County, New Jersey.

From the Monkey’s House website

Monkey’s House is a sanctuary providing hospice care to senior dogs who, through no fault of their own, are homeless in their senior years. We differ from other rescues because our primary mission is not to adopt out dogs, but to provide all the care and love they need for however long they have.

Our 6-acre farm in Burlington County, NJ houses the facilities which the Monkey’s House dogs call home.  Providing a loving home environment for these animals is a critical component of their care, and something we take pride in here at Monkey’s House.
