Our Seniors for Seniors adoption program helps with the match of a perfect golden furry friend for seniors who want to enjoy and love a mature dog without all the energy and training involved with adopting a young active dog. Younger dogs and puppies require more physical daily activities (running/walking), dog/human socialization and much more daily training than a calm and wise senior dog. Golden dogs are more mellow, affectionate, and well behaved. Super sweeties! They will be your loyal best friend and loving companion!
Please have designated back up guardians to care for your dog in the event that you are no longer able to (i.e. extended medical care (hospital/out of home), becoming sick, etc.). Your loving furry best friend is counting on you to protect them for life!
If you do not have a back up guardian available for your senior dog, Furry Friends Rescue will be your back up and protection for the life of your senior dog:—If you face unexpected future health challenges that result in you being unable to care or keep your dog, Furry Friends Rescue will care for our rescue dogs, just like our own fur-kids, for life!
Please read our "Guardian for Life"
Please read the Benefit of Adopting a Mature Dog and How to Calculate Your Dog's Age articles. Small and toy breeds don't become "seniors" until around age 10 if they are provided healthy food and great care/exercise. Holistic/fresh foods, supplements, exercise, and limiting toxins are critical to keep all dogs healthy and living longer. Some of our dogs have lived 19-22 years!
