Vintage Paws is a sanctuary where senior dogs, regardless of their health, can live out their lives. They generally accept dogs that are nine years and older, regardless of the breed. All dogs can be adopted but many are not due to advanced age and/or illness. The Sanctuary limits the intake based on space and financial constraints – we care until the end, no matter what.
A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps with their Hospice/Forever Foster Program. The goal with this program is to provide compassionate care to senior dogs with life-limiting illness or disease including, but not limited to: cancer, kidney failure, arthritis, diabetes, Cushing’s, heart disease, periodontal disease, blindness and incontinence. They provide: pain management, chemo/radiation, sub q fluids, supplemental nutrition, holistic meals, medical and dental surgery, medication, acupuncture, chiropractic, laser therapy, massage, radiographs and ultrasound, ER visits; and a loving and safe environment to live out their final days, months or years.
