Senior dogs are often overlooked in shelters. Rural Dog Rescue takes these seniors and gives them a new lease on life! We find them forever families to live out their golden years.
When a senior dog becomes a member of the Rural Dog Rescue pack, they get a full exam from one of our veterinarians. Some will require heartworm treatment, a dental cleaning and extractions, biopsies on growth or tumors, and x-rays or medication for arthritis.
Senior dogs are a great fit for those looking for a calm, sweet dog who likes to curl up on the couch together. If you cannot adopt or foster, please consider making a donation so that we can continue to save senior dogs from spending the last days of their lives in a shelter.
