Young At Heart

A rescue and safe haven for senior dogs & cats

In a perfect world, every senior pet would spend its twilight years surrounded by a loving family. But sadly, senior pets that end up in shelters often do not get that chance. Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoptions™ believes that Love Has No Age Limit™. Young at Heart's mission is to provide senior dogs and cats with a safe haven to ensure they live with comfort, compassion, and companionship in their golden years. We save the lives of homeless senior dogs and cats from situations where their age puts them first in line to be euthanized. We find loving homes for adoptable senior pets and offer a peaceful sanctuary life for those that are less adoptable. With your support, Young at Heart gives older dogs and cats another chance to enjoy the twilight of their lives through rescue, foster, adoption and sanctuary.

Young at Heart • 4301 S. IL Route 47 • Woodstock IL 60098 • 815-333-4001 
Adoptions are done by appointment once you have an approved adoption application.

ALL ADOPTIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT WITH AN APPROVED APPLICATION. SOCIAL DISTANCING AND OTHER COVID-19 PREVENTATIVE MEASURES WILL BE REQUIRED FOR EVERY ADOPTION.
