FLPS works with local animal rescues and shelters to identify senior dogs in need. Unfortunately, euthanizing senior animals at county shelters is common due to lack of space and a focus on younger, “more adoptable” dogs. We provide a variety of services:
Before we make them available for adoption, every senior dog with Forever Loved receives:
- Spay or neuter surgery (if needed)
- Medical examination
- Lots of daily love and care!
For various reasons — including moving, a new baby, divorce, or medical expenses — dogs become "disposable" and end up at local shelters.
Once there, finding a senior dog a new home has been difficult historically, because most people want younger dogs, puppies, or purebred dogs from breeders (according to the American Pet Products Association, 34% of American families still obtain their dogs through breeders).
Our goal at Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary is to educate the public on why this is an unfortunate trend, and show people why senior dogs deserve a second chance.
