From the Promise 4 Paws Senior Dog Sanctuary website
Promise 4 Paws Senior Dog Sanctuary is just that…A sanctuary for senior dogs. Our mission is to provide a loving, home-like environment for senior dogs for the remainder of their lives. We continuously strive to keep the dogs’ lives as normal as possible and give them the love they deserve. The first step to achieve that? give them an actual home. when you come to the sanctuary, you won’t see dogs in kennels. you’ll see 20 or so dogs roaming the yard, napping on big, comfy dog beds, chewing on toys and doing everything your typical dog is doing at home.
Seniors have a lot to teach, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)
Here are a few of the many residents currently living at Promise 4 Paws Senior Dog Sanctuary.
Sara is an adorable little min-pin. Those ears crack me up every time I look her way.

This chucky boy is Ollie! He is one of several chihuahuas taking over the sanctuary. Ollie is younger, but suffers from heart failure. He is very shy at first, but is definitely warming up to his new life. He finally slept in bed with us the other night and was very cuddly. If you stop by the sanctuary, likely you’ll find Ollie hanging out in the kennel, like the picture above. He just likes to check out the action of everyone else. Love him!

Rile is a 15-year old border collie. She is so sweet. Riley is in the beginning stages of losing both her hearing an vision so she does get started when she’s unknowingly approached, but otherwise, this girl is a happy soul.

Toby is the newest member of the family and is currently staying in a temporary foster home until he is healthy enough to come to the sanctuary. Toby is estimated to be around 13-years old. This guy has lived all his life on a chain outdoors. He is very skinny and has a few health concerns we are monitoring, but overall he is a wonderful dog adapting to a new life.

Miss Shelby is a 12-year old cocker spaniel. Don’t be fooled, this face looks all sweet and innocent, but she loves food and will counter-surf with the best of them to reach your food. Other than this, Shelby is a true lover and is the best to lay with.
