Our 2020 Donation Drive


One of the things we are most grateful for in 2020 has been our ability to continue to care for senior pets in need. Despite how hard this year has been, the older dogs and cats in our care have enjoyed every single day, found loving homes, and received the comfort, compassion, and companionship they deserve. Because of your support, the homeless senior pets here get to enjoy their golden years filled with love and joy. We simply could not do it without the support of friends like you!

A very generous Angel Donor is matching every single donation until the end of the year, up to $100,000! This is a huge gift for the older dogs and cats that need our help, and we'd love to raise every single dollar to help even more. Please help us reach our goal! Every dollar makes an incredible difference. Thank you!


This is a huge deal for our senior pets, especially in a tough year full of so much uncertainty. We are so VERY grateful! If you’ve already donated, THANK YOU! If you’re able to donate, you can donate in several different ways! And if you are unable to donate this year, it means a lot if you would share this with your friends. Thank you!

Your year-end tax-deductible gift will give homeless senior pets the chance they deserve to live with comfort, compassion, and companionship in their golden years.

Every donation, no matter what the size, makes a HUGE difference for Young at Heart! And now through the end of the year, it will be MATCHED, making it go twice as far! Thank you for helping us reach our goal!
