Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary- a name you might have heard if you are a fan of dogs! But what really is it?
Old Friends is an animal shelter based in Mount Juliet, Tennessee that specializes in giving senior dogs a home and the care that they need. They do not concern themselves with the quantity of time that the dogs have left, rather the quality of the life they can provide them for that time. They house approximately 100-120 dogs at the sanctuary, while supporting almost 200 others in temporary and Forever Foster Homes. Old Friends strives to raise awareness of the joys and challenges of living with older dogs.
Senior dogs face a much greater chance of euthanasia than younger dogs because it is difficult to find adopters for them due to their shorter additional life expectancy and unknown veterinary costs. However, senior dogs make wonderful additions to families due to being mature, calm, and loving! Old Friends strives to have their dogs live out their retirement years as a beloved member of a family.
They believe that a dog’s personality just gets sweeter with time, and that even though their dogs are growing old they certainly aren’t growing up.
