The animals we rescue come from situations where they are in danger of being euthanized because of their age. Young at Heart's mission is to provide senior dogs and cats with a safe haven to ensure they live with comfort, compassion, and companionship in their golden years.

Each dog or cat that we rescue receives the best veterinary care, and we do not turn away animals that need a little extra medical attention. All of our pets are vaccinated, tested for infectious diseases, microchipped, spayed/neutered, receive a geriatric screening, and almost all receive a dental cleaning. We also provide other treatments to enhance any senior pet’s adoptability. We treat allergies, heartworm, thyroid ailments, etc. We do whatever it takes to help senior pets find their forever homes.

And if their medical needs prove to be too daunting to our adoption program, they are not euthanized at Young at Heart. They find their happily ever after in one of our licensed Sanctuary Homes, where they are loved and cared for like one of the family while we provide all their medical care.
