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
Peanut Cookie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Peanut Cookie! This a sweet, playful dog would love sponsors in her honor. Peanut Cookie is a 9-year-old, 16 pound Terrier mix.

Peanut Cookie came to us from Salinas Animal Services after being picked up as a stray. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, a dental cleaning and the removal of multiple benign mammary masses. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Peanut Cookie.
