This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on the Vintage Paws Sanctuary in Sarasota, Florida.
From the Vintage Paws Sanctuary website
The vision of Vintage Paws Sanctuary is to provide a home-like setting for senior dogs to live out their natural lives instead of dying by premature euthanasia. Our goal is to raise enough money to build a “retirement home” where senior dogs can live comfortably surrounded by love and getting the veterinary care they need.
The reasons dogs are prematurely euthanized:
- Complexity of care.
- Cost of care.
- The death or incapacitation of their owner.
- The dog is “too old.”
- The dog was relinquished to a high-kill shelter where many seniors are not adopted.
