Hi there! I'm Opie, the World's Cutest Dog, and I am a permanent resident of Young at Heart. I am in end stage renal failure, but am comfortable and happy with medical support.

Hi there! I'm Ginger, and I am a super sweet little girl. I'm great with other dogs and am very tolerant, which is a good thing because I do have some special needs. You see, after Young at Heart rescued me, they found out during their head-to-toe senior intake exam that I have diabetes. I a… Read More


Hi there! I'm Loni, and I am an adorable chihuahua mix. I came to Young at Heart from an "open admission" shelter, where I was scheduled to be euthanized because I was "too scared".

My name is Hero, and I am the sweetest little guy ever. My family dumped me at an open admission shelter with my buddy, Cafe, and we were both in awful shape. Young at Heart rescued us both, and took us straight to the vet. Sadly, Cafe had so many complex medical conditions going on that he … Read More


Hi! I'm Bernie, and I'm a special little guy with a lot of special needs. I'm very medically complex, so I was ever so happy to hear that despite those needs, I was going to remain safe and sound in Young at Heart's care. I love my four-legged siblings, and love love love my Sanctuary Mom. I… Read More


Hi there! I'm Jessie, a very sweet Calico kitty who also happens to have very high blood pressure.
