Help the Next 50 Senior Pets and Win!


Mr. B came to us recently after his elderly guardian passed away. After 14 loyal years of staying by his dad's side, he needed a gentle transition to the new way he was going to enjoy his golden years. And so we welcomed Mr. B to Young at Heart. With lots of love and care, plus a dental and a mass removal from his foot, Mr. B is now happy and content in his foster home. This boy is so grateful to be able to enjoy the next chapter of his story, and it's our supporters who make that possible!

With the opening of our adoption center on Sept 29th, we are really looking forward to being able to help so many more senior pets like Mr. B. get the chance to enjoy their golden years. However, this is also the time of year that our medical fund runs dangerously low - and we are still a couple months out from Silver Paws, our biggest fundraiser of the year. We want to be sure that we are fully prepared to help as many senior pets as possible, so we are asking for your support in helping us prepare for all the senior pets like Mr. B about to come our way!

We spend an average of $1000 getting each senior pet ready for adoption. We take care of dentals, x-rays, bloodwork, ultrasounds and more, and that's in addition to the veterinary basics like vaccines, spay/neuter, deworming, heartworm/feline leukemia testing and microchip. Our goal is lofty, but we want to be prepared to help the next 50 pets that need us!

Every size donation makes such a big impact at Young at Heart, so to help us reach our goal, every donation will be entered into a raffle for a gift bag full of new release Young at Heart swag! AND If you create a Facebook fundraiser, for every $100 you raise, you will be entered into a raffle to win a pizza party at the new adoption center for 6 people, complete with Young at Heart swag for everyone in your party!

Please help us get ready to help the next 50 senior pets that need us at the new adoption center!
