The dogs shown on our website as Final Refuge (permanent foster) dogs are spending the last part of their lives as members of the family in one of our wonderful ODH homes, surrounded by people who love them, with excellent medical care. They have been deemed unadoptable due to health issues, too fragile to move again, or very close to the end of their lives. These dogs are being supported in their retirement homes by your donations. Thank you!
If you would like to honor a particular dog or dogs, please consider donating a sponsorship at $30 for 3 months or $100 for 1 year per dog. You can see all our Final Refuge dogs to pick the dog(s) you’d like to sponsor here!
Your donation will help with medical care and expenses for ALL of the dogs in our Final Refuge program, but your “special dog” will appreciate having a friend and you’ll receive a card with his picture. Sponsorships make wonderful gifts and memorials as well.
To Sponsor a Final Refuge dog:
A sponsorship listing on the website is followed by the expiration month of that sponsorship or a golden heart is displayed for ‘lifetime’ sponsorships. If the dog you are sponsoring dies we will move your sponsorship to another dog. If you would like to change your sponsorship to a different dog, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are renewing a sponsorship but not using a sponsor form, please note on your donation that it is to continue your sponsorship so we can properly identify it.
The costs involved in caring for our senior dogs include veterinary care and surgeries, medication, special diets and supplements, and euthanasia when quality of life has diminished.
We are an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization (TIN 65-1249528). Contributions are tax-deductible.
