Joey's Home Senior Dog Rescue is a small, independent rescue dedicated to the rescue/placement of senior/special needs dogs. All efforts are made to adopt our seniors to loving, responsible homes if possible, or to effect a transfer to another rescue organization. If our dogs are unable to be placed, they will live out the rest of their retirement in a foster home, receiving any hospice care required. We believe no senior's life should end alone in an animal shelter or pound.
Before a potential adopter can meet our rescues, an application must be filled out. We require personal and veterinary references, as well as a home visit. When possible, we will bring the pet to your home for the home visit to meet your family and pets.
We do require an adoption fee for our pets. The fees vary, depending on the health and age of the animal. The cost of veterinary care, especially for seniors, is very high. Most of our dogs come in with no previous vetting, and the adoption fees we charge help defray the cost of getting them ready for a new home. Our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative, and microchipped.
PLEASE NOTE: We do offer discounts on the adoption fees for senior adopters (ages 65 and up) and for multiple adoptions. Ask for details!
