APPLY TO ADOPT
Interested in adopting one of our senior dogs?

It's easy! First, make note of the dog's name and then move on to the
online adoption application.


After your application is approved, we will coordinate a time for a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.


If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.


After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!


Our dear little Cookie. This little girl has not had a very good life but we are determined to change it all around for her. She was neglected to the point where her body severely suffered but she's made significant progress in her foster home. She will never be all okay physically and will always need meds to manage possible pain - but she is a charming girl who deserves to live out her life surrounded by love for as long as she has quality of life. We are hopeful and believe this will be a very long time!!
Cookie will need a special home where she can move at her own pace, physically and emotionally. It will take her time to settle in and trust her new parent(s), but she will. She has been to a canine rehab center and we've just started her on water therapy (in the bathtub with a life vest). It should help her mobility, at least is worth a good try.
She is about 11 years old and weighs 9 lbs. So quite light and easy to carry around! She gets along with other dogs and probably cats, too.

Cookie has recently discovered toys and loves to go pick out her favorite from the box and play in her bed with it. There is almost nothing sweeter than seeing this little girl be so happy.

We are looking for a special forever home where Cookie can continue to receive the TLC she's been provided with by her foster momma. She is the kind of dog who just really, really needs a person who will give her a chance. The reward is golden.
