Donations Tripled through December 3



When 12 year old Bobby's guardian had a stroke, it took 6 long days before someone realized Bobby was still at home all alone.

Bobby was overjoyed to finally be rescued, and was taken to a shelter where they fed him and kept him safe. Sadly, Bobby's guardian would not be going home, and there were no friends and no family to be contacted. Bobby may have been rescued from his own home, but at 12 years old he would not be a candidate for the shelter's adoption program. He needed help again. That's when the caseworker for Bobby's guardian reached out to Young at Heart.

We joyfully arranged for Bobby to join Young at Heart. Upon arrival, it was obvious just how loved he has been his whole life. He is sweet, happy, and so snuggly, and so happy to be around people. After a much needed bubble bath, Bobby went to one of our loving foster homes, where he finally realized he was safe. He spent the whole first night trying out all the laps in his foster home and snoozing soundly in each one.

Bobby was definitely loved in his past life, but he has been lacking in veterinary care for quite some time. With your help, Bobby will get a complete geriatric veterinary work up, a full dental to address a mouth full of bad teeth, and any other medical care he may need to enjoy his golden years to the fullest.

Because of our generous supporters like you, we were able to help 12 year old Bobby and give him the chance he deserves to enjoy his golden years.

Between now and Giving Tuesday on December 3rd, your gift to Young at Heart will be tripled thanks to a matching gift grant by the Sequoia Foundation, until we raise $150,000.

We need your help to reach our matching grant goal of $150,000 so that we can continue to care for Bobby and the 55 other senior pets in our care, and the senior pets that will need rescue in the near future. We're off to a great start, but we have a long way to go to make it to that goal.
