LOVE DOESN'T THE YEARS
Many of us are not afforded the chance to age in our society. It is easier to discard, or replace with new. It is not any different with dogs. Dogs are a lifetime commitment. Unfortunately, plans are not made when the time comes or seniors are abandoned for many reasons. As dogs age, they need us more to help them through the transition.
Most of our community shelters do not have the provisions to help seniors. Most have difficulty adopting them out and they often die alone in the shelter. Many rural and smaller communities do not have publicly funded animal control or shelters. We assist our community when seniors are in need of rescue by filling this gap, and at the same time, easing the burden on services that do exist. Our general intake age is ten, but each senior and their circumstance is unique. For seniors we are unable to house at the sanctuary, when possible, we assist with placements and coordinate with care partners.
When a new member comes to the sanctuary, they receive:
Full Veterinary Care, Spay/ Neuter, Surgeries, Dentals,
Pain Management, Dying with Dignity, Most of all, LOVE
The sanctuary began out of a desire to honor our founder's father who passed from cancer. Upon his passing, he left behind a senior Doberman, highlighting the need for senior dog care.
Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary is a donation based non-profit. We are funded entirely through your generous contributions. 100% of your donation goes directly to our seniors. If you would like to make a direct donation, you can do so through Paypal. As a registered 501(c)(3) we can also provide you with an end of year tax receipt. In addition to monetary gifts, we also gladly accept gifts of tangible goods such, as food, toys, blankets, beds, etc.
