There are many places around the country where senior dogs get to live out the rest of their lives in peace and loving homes. However, some dogs never do get adopted especially older ones. More families are looking for younger dogs to grow with their children. I have heard of programs where senior retirement facilities get paired with senior dogs and they get to live happily ever after in some cases. But in most cases, the dogs are stuck in shelters.

There is a place in Colorado Springs called "The Old Mutt" this is where senior dogs get to go and live happily. They are always looking for volunteers so if you would like to help out or know someone in Colorado Springs that absolutely loves dogs and maybe they would like to help out. You can call them 719-287-0030 or on Facebook at "The Old Mutt Hut".
