A local canine non profit is gearing up to open a new permanent home dedicated to caring for senior dogs.
“Living Grace Canine Ranch is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to providing a permanent home for senior canines of all breeds that are sheltered adoptive-disadvantaged or re-homed due to a loving parent’s inability to provide care,” according to the organization. “We open our hearts and home so old dogs will only experience love and safety throughout their golden years.”
The Georgetown-based organization is building a facility where their dogs can live out their best lives and they will open the bunkhouse doors to twenty senior residents on December 12, 2020.
“This represents a second chance for a group of senior dogs in need and a final prayer for many given the sad outcome many older dogs face living in rural Texas shelters,” Rhonda Minardi, Founder of Living Grace Canine Ranch, said.
November is also National Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month, which encourages people to be aware of and adopt older animals.
“Seniors dogs are often considered unadoptable due to age-related conditions and medical issues,” according to Living Grace Canine Ranch. “Just five U.S. states account for 50% of the shelter animals killed by euthanasia across the country with Texas topping the list with the highest number of shelter pets euthanized each year – the most at risk for euthanasia being senior canines.”
