Senior Dog Adoption Ambassador Program
Our Resident Ambassador Program selects one lucky senior dog from a local shelter and not only gives them a new forever home at the Sanctuary, but also gives them a chance to find a renewed sense of purpose in life as an Ambassador for Senior Dog Adoption.
Known as the 'Resident Ambassador', this confident and capable senior, with the help of the sanctuary's staff and volunteers, becomes an advocate for all of the seniors still waiting for that second chance at being part of the family. By demonstrating the best qualities a senior can offer their new pack, our Ambassadors change the hearts and minds of potential adopters and overcome the negative perceptions that discourage people from adopting seniors.
Where can you meet our Ambassadors?
Our Ambassadors are always on duty and we never miss a chance to share their amazing stories and our personal testimonies. In a more official capacity, you can find our Seniors at festivals, farmers markets, and other community events.
Pet Therapy Initiative
Sanctuary Residents of the appropriate disposition will be trained and certified as part of a Pet Therapy Team. Teams will consist of a certified sanctuary resident and one certified staff member or volunteer.
Satellite Sanctuary Initiative
There are thousands of wonderful senior dog companions waiting for homes in shelters across the country. We want to provide sanctuary to every senior and we are asking for your help.
