The concepts of eldercare and hospice are relatively new as applied to companion and domestic animals. Elderly animals are frequently neglected, abandoned or euthanized before their time. The attitude that animals are ‘disposable’ when they reach their senior years permeates much of American society. KSAS strives to create positive changes in attitude and behavior towards older animals by example here at the sanctuary, as well as through outreach programs to educate our community.

At Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary, we believe that animals are great teachers of unconditional love. Sanctuary educational programs provide a better understanding and appreciation of the aging process in our animal companions. KSAS also offers workshops in how to provide special care for senior companion animals.

The long-term mission of KSAS is to provide education and support to empower people to care for their elderly animal companions at home. Aging is a natural stage in the cycle of life. The development of positive attitudes and greater understanding of the aging process benefits not only our elderly animal population, but people, too.


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.
