Everyday we wake up and give thanks to all the amazing people who have joined Old Dog Haven in our mission to help old dogs. Because of our caring supporters 300+ dogs have safe and loving homes. Over 280,000 people follow us on Facebook and help spread the word about senior dogs in need and the work we do. Generous contributions are received from people all over the world.

We have some wonderful ways for you to show your love for old dogs this holiday season and every penny received helps us care for over 300 dogs in our care, and enables us to move forward with our mission.



Sponsor a Final Refuge Dog

There are hundreds of Final Refuge dogs waiting for loving and caring sponsors. Final Refuge dogs stay in one of our permanent foster homes for the rest of their lives and your sponsorship goes toward their care. Please consider giving the gift of a sponsorship to your friends, family or yourself this holiday season.  See all the dogs waiting for a new friend here.

Make a Gift to the Maranda Fund

Sometimes we take in a dog that needs an extensive and expensive medical procedure. The Maranda Fund was created to set aside funds to pay for these procedures. The number of dogs helped with the Maranda Fund has grown exponentially the last few years and in 2017 the fund has helped 33 dogs!
