Do you get repeat adopters?:  Yes

How often do you rescue seniors?:   As often as possible! At the moment, seniors make up about 50% of the dogs in our care

Are you finding it easier, the same or harder to adopt out senior animals now than when you first began in rescue?:

The same.

If faced with multiple seniors to rescue, how do you decide who to pull?

We try to decide who we can be of the most help to or who is most urgent.

If you’re senior specific, what made you choose rescuing seniors over younger animals?  If not senior specific, why did you decide to include seniors in your rescue program?

We love seniors – we know they are amazing dogs with lots of love left to give and that they can make wonderful pets for almost any
family.

What problems or difficulties have you had adopting out seniors?

We often have people who don’t want to adopt a dog over 2 or a dog that has health problems.

What sort of prejudices do you find held against senior animals?

There is definitely a stigma for older pets, especially seniors. Many adopters envision a lifetime of love with a new pet and don’t
want to cut that time short by adopting an older pet. We try to guide them to the best pet for them, regardless of age.

What special expenses have you found needed with seniors that you don’t generally have with younger dogs? (This is generalized and isn’t meant to include medical expenses for more catastrophic illnesses.)

Thyroid medication, heartworm treatment, prescription diets, extra lab work, etc.

Have you found something that helps get seniors adopted?

We just look for that special person who will open their heart to a senior pet.

Is there anything else that you’d like to share about your rescue group?

Simone, Simone is a petite 5 year old girl. She is spayed, heartworm negative, and already vaccinated. She is friendly with people and dogs and is quite a talker. She loves to be petted and rides well in the car. She was in and out of the shelter THREE times because she had ringworm and a presumed urinary tract infection. It turns out she actually had bladder stones! She had surgery to remove them and are going to ensure she finds a wonderful home and will never have to worry about the shelter again. She does not need any special medication or treatment for her urinary crystals other than a special food for the rest of her life to ensure no stones develop. Her ringworm has cleared up and she is ready to transition into her very last forever home! She is a cuddlebug and also loves to play with toys and other dogs. She is a spunky little girl and will bring joy to every single day for her family.

Lula, Lula is an 8 year old Bluetick female. She was a stray at the shelter but we can't imagine why! She is a lovely, friendly girl and she is sweet and affectionate. She is good with other dogs and loves people. She's a low-maintenance gal and would be a great fit for any household!

Lily, Lily is a 7 year old spayed female. She is housebroken and does fine in or out of a crate. She rarely barks or howls. She is not destructive at all: she does not chew or even jump on furniture. She's never tried to get out of the backyard and is not a digger. She gets along fine with dogs and cats. She is very calm, sweet, and low maintenance. She, like most Beagles, is obsessed with food and will need to be fed separately from other pets in the house. She loves bones and is working on letting people take them from her. She is VERY smart and sweet!

Khaki, Khaki is a 6 year old lemon Beagle. She is spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm negative. She was surrendered by her family because they couldn't spend enough time with her.

Gabbie and Tangie, Tangie and Gabbie - These sweet girls were surrendered to the shelter by their owner because the owner got a new job and "didn't have time for them." They are both 9 years old, and we believe they are sisters - though they may not be blood related. They are spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. They are housetrained and well behaved - they are not destructive and can be left out in the house with no issues. They love to go for rides in the car and are friendly with people and other dogs. Tangie appears to have had her teeth cleaned recently and Gabbie will have her teeth cleaned prior to adoption. They are all around great dogs and would be perfect for someone who wants to skip the puppy stage and settle in with a great pair. They will only be available for adoption together, but they do have a reduced adoption fee. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to meet these lovely ladies!
