#ThankYou, from Our Founder & Director


If I could wrap up my birthday thanks in just six words, they would be: Thank you for being totally awesome! 

Yesterday was my 40th birthday, and my big wish was to find 40 friends to become Constant Companion donors to Young at Heart so that we can help more senior pets. I thought it was a pretty big wish, but there would be no greater gift than knowing we could save more lives. You made my birthday amazing! I tell people all the time that Young at Heart's village is incredible. In just 24 hours, 37 friends have signed up to become Constant Companions, and I hope we can find just three more by the end of the day today! This was the best birthday EVER!

I cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am for this amazing gift! Your monthly donation reduces the time we spend fundraising, helps us plan our operations, and - most important - allows us to rescue senior pets like the four pictured here that we just welcomed into Young at Heart today, thanks to you! Knowing that we have your ongoing support means that we can confidently say yes to helping many more loving, amazing old souls that just need a second chance. 

Welcome Scooby (age 9), Koqueta (age 10), Baby Girl (age 14), and Pistachio (age 7) to the Good Life at Young at Heart! These sweet old souls will get a full work up at our vet and, once we get to know them, will be looking for families to love them for the rest of their lives.

So, thank you to the 37 new Constant Companion monthly donors from the bottom of my heart! And I know that these four newly rescued seniors that will now get a second chance to enjoy their golden years are saying thank you, too!
