About Us

Welcome to the official blog of IUP for Old Friends, a student run charitable campaign aiming to raise money for Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary.

I am partnering with IUP Sociology club and Just Paws therapy dogs to bring you a brief sigh of relief during your busy day.

On Wednesday, October 31st (Yes, Halloween!), from 12:30PM-2PM in the first floor lobby of the Humanities and Social Sciences building (behind the library) the Just Paws therapy dogs will be making an appearance. This is free of charge and open to anyone who wants to come- and some of the dogs will be dressed in costumes for the occasion.

Although, as stated, this is free of charge, we are encouraging everyone who comes to visit to leave a donation to Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary. OFSDS is a registered charitable organization based in Tennessee who strives to give elderly dogs a comfortable and loving place to live out the remainder of their days. With over 100 dogs on their premise, all needing to eat, live in a clean environment, and have the occasional surgery (as elder dogs do) Old Friends needs your help. Cash donations and PayPal donations would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you prefer to know exactly where your money is going, Old Friends has an Amazon wish list I will be handing out URL’s for.

Be sure to tell your friends that you know where to go when you need a break, and that there will be dogs in costumes waiting for you, as well as elderly dogs hoping you can help them.
