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.
Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Hercules! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Hercules is an 11-year-old, 41 pound Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix.

Hercules came to us from Salinas Animal Shelter where he was found as a stray. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, dental, mass removals and a biopsy. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Hercules.
