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
Ginger Yorkie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Ginger! This sweet girl would love sponsors in her honor. Ginger is a 10-year-old, 7 pound Yorkshire Terrier mix.

Ginger came to us from Monterey County Animal Services. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, dental cleaning and double eye removal due to untreated chronic glaucoma. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Ginger.
