Josh Billings was quoted as saying, “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than himself.” Yet every day, older and senior dogs that have lived their lives as Josh Billings described are turned over to shelters, or just left on the street. We believe in the dignity that all dogs deserve, especially those that have given so much and asked for so little. Sedona is a place for those dogs to turn to for help and a second chance. While the dogs in our program are predominantly German Shepherds (or mixes) we work with rescue organizations throughout the Northeast. At Sedona, we believe that world of rescue can work together for all dogs. A dog saved is what truly matters, not which organization saves the dog.
For us, there is no greater joy in rescue than being able to pull an older dog and find them a forever home. Older dogs teach us compassion, they teach us hope, and saving them helps us to believe to never give up. Next time you or someone you know is looking for companion, think of Sedona and all the wonderful adult and “senior” dogs that still have a lot of life and love to give. These dogs are ever faithful, waiting for us.
