Who will care for your dog if you no longer can?
Our mission is to be a resource and advocate for senior dogs and senior people on California's Central Coast. We find loving homes for dogs whose guardians can no longer care for them and for senior dogs in shelters.

Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Buttercup! This little doll would love sponsors in her honor. Buttercup is a 14-year-old, 9 pound Chihuahua mix with a precious personality.

Buttercup came to us from the San Jose Animal Care Center after being picked up as a stray. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis and an extensive dental procedure. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Buttercup.
