#GivingTuesday 2021


Make a donation and help homeless senior pets this holiday season!

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™ is a 501c3 nonprofit rescue and safe haven for senior dogs & cats in Woodstock, IL founded in 2005. We are Northern Illinois' oldest rescue organization dedicated just to senior dogs and cats.

Young at Heart's cageless adoption center just for senior dogs and cats opened in Woodstock IL in September 2019. 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 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.

Because we are a cageless facility, adoptions are done by appointment only with an approved application for the safety and well-being of all of our senior pets. Buildings are not open to the public otherwise at this time.

Young at Heart™ believes that Love Has No Age Limit™.

Donate online at this link, or via snail mail to Young at Heart, 4301 S IL Route 47, Woodstock IL 60098. Every dollar makes a difference, and on Giving Tuesday, Nov 30th, Facebook is matching $8 million dollars in donations!
