Young at Heart believes that Love Has No Age Limit™, and just because a dog or cat has some medical issues, doesn't mean that they can't enjoy the twilight of their lives. Young at Heart's Sanctuary Program allows senior pets with medical issues that are too complex for traditional adoption to enjoy the love of a family while Young at Heart pays for all the medical expenses for the Sanctuary Pet. These dogs and cats will receive all the medical care, love, and attention they need for the rest of their lives, cared for by their Sanctuary Homes, and financially supported by Young At Heart. 

The dogs and cats in our sanctuary program have been rescued from pounds and shelters with the intention of being adopted to loving families, but medical issues have prevented them from becoming fully adoptable. Our Sanctuary Pets are not available for adoption. If you are interested in becoming a Sanctuary Home for a special needs senior pet, please fill out a foster home application.

Sanctuary Pets may be sponsored by making a donation and then dedicating the donation to the Sanctuary Pet of your choice. Your donation helps us provide a lifetime of care for one of these special dogs or cats.
