THE STORY:

A few grey hairs shouldn’t be the end of the world, but for an older pet in a traditional animal shelter, it often is. In a traditional shelter environment, the older the animal, the less chance it has to make it out of the shelter alive. Often these dogs and cats are just what people are looking for when they consider adopting a new pet; housebroken, calmer, good with kids and other animals, and already trained. They are great family pets and great for senior citizens. They have had years to perfect the art of loving a human unconditionally, and most do not get a second chance to find a new home. It’s time to provide a safe haven for senior pets that have nowhere left to go.

A no-kill, home-like shelter designed just for dogs and cats over the age of 7 years is needed to provide a safe haven and a second chance for older pets in need of new homes. Over the past 10 years, Young at Heart has rescued and found new homes for over 800 senior dogs and cats (with an average age of 10.2 years old!) through a small network of foster homes. But it's time to do more. It's time that senior pets had a home of their own.

Join Young at Heart and help build the first adoption center and sanctuary in Illinois for senior dogs and cats. Your gift will help build a 3400 square foot home-like environment where they can enjoy stretching out in a patch of sunshine, a romp in a lush green yard or a leash walk on the 8 serene acres, a nap in the lap of a volunteer, bird-watching out the many windows available to them – and the peace of mind knowing that they are safe and loved.

Change the future for homeless senior pets. Make a donation today to build a shelter and safe haven for older dogs and cats!
