I enjoy nothing better than a comfy bed and am a champion snuggle bug. I came to Young at Heart after being … Read More


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". And really, I was very very scared. Of everything. People, my shadow, noises, you name it. I just wasn't scare… Read More


Hi there! I'm Mr. Kitty, but my closest friends call me Mike. I'm a sanctuary kitty because after arriving at Young at Heart, I was diagnosed with lymphoma.

I'm 14-year-old Tootsie, and I came to Young at Heart from a shelter where I was supposed to be euthanized.

Hi there! I'm Jessie, a very sweet Calico kitty who also happens to have very high blood pressure. I was welcomed into Young at Heart's sanctuary program after waiting over a year for a home of my own, but because my condition requires daily medication and regular blood pressure monitoring, … Read More


I'm Olivia, and I am a silly and wonderful girl! When I was rescued, I drank a ton of water all of the time, so the rescue ran a bunch of tests on me. I was then misdiagnosed by a vet, and treated for a condition that I didn't have. I still drank a ton of water, so housebreaking was hard for… Read More
