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 Destiny! This sweet girl would love sponsors in her honor. Destiny is a 12-year-old Poodle mix.

Destiny came to us from Monterey County Animal Services after being picked up as a terribly matted stray. This photo was taken immediately after she was pulled from the shelter. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, dental cleaning and a hernia repair. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Destiny.
