Senior Sunday – Vintage Paws Sanctuary

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.

Seniors have a lot to offer, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)

Note: Please share this post on your social media so that others can learn about these wonderful senior dogs. It’s the only way to spread the word about these seniors who need homes.
