This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on the Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

Senior dogs, especially those with medical problems or disabilities, face a much greater chance of euthanasia at shelters than younger dogs because it is difficult to find adopters for them due to their shorter additional life expectancy and unknown veterinary costs. Most of these wonderful senior dogs will be able to live happily with a good quality of life if given a chance.
They make wonderful companions because they are mature, calm and loving. It is more difficult for them to settle in, and once they do, it is difficult for them to move again. For this reason we strive to find them forever foster homes where they can live out their retirement years as a loved family member.
- To provide a loving home, good food, high quality vet care, compassion and comfort to senior dogs for the remainder of their lives.
- To build a Forever Foster Home network to enable us to place more senior dogs in loving, home settings for the duration of their lives.
- To provide education on the joys and challenges of caring for aging dogs.
- To work with other dog rescue groups to promote the adoption of senior dogs.
Seniors have a lot to offer, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)
