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.
Meet a few of our adoptable dogs
Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Angel Border Collie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Angel! This senior sweetheart would love sponsors in her honor. Angel is a 14-year-old, 47 pound Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix.

Angel came to us when her family could no longer care for her. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, dental cleaning and arthritis support. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Angel.
