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.

Young at Heart Pet Rescue is dedicated to the following goals:

  • Rescuing stray and relinquished senior animals from animal shelters that have not been adopted and are scheduled to be euthanized. Young at Heart takes the animals that are considered “too old” for traditional shelters and rescues and provides them with a chance at a forever home, either with a new loving family, or through our Sanctuary Program.
  • Opening an adoption center and sanctuary where rescued senior pets can be safely sheltered without the threat of euthanization until adoptive families are found for them, or where they may live out their days surrounded by the best care and love at our sanctuary. OPENED SEPTEMBER 29, 2019!
  • Providing medical care to neglected, abused and injured senior animals.
  • Rehabilitating hard-to-adopt senior animals and finding them loving homes.
  • Promoting the benefit of adopting older pets, and educating the public on the care of senior dogs and cats.
  • Educating children and adults alike on responsible pet guardianship.
  • Creating an alliance with local shelters and animal rescues to improve the adoption rate of senior pets.

Young at Heart is a nonprofit, "no kill" organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of senior dogs and cats. We are a 501(c) non-profit. Our Tax ID is 20-2476194.
