"Love has no age-limit"
When you think about it, older pups are just vintage puppies, which is why we wanted to kick-off our Rescue RoastDonation Program with Young at Heart. As you may already know, each month 100% of the profits of our roast go towards a different rescue – and in our first month of the program, we were able to raise over $5,000 for the seniors over at YAH. We caught up with Dawn Kemper and Jen Porter at their senior pet sanctuary, which is still under construction, where our senior friends will await their forever home in comfort.
About Young At Heart Senior Pet Rescue
In April of 2005, the mission became clear for a small group of people who found that pups with handsome grey hair and cats who like to lounge more than most should be provided the comfort they deserve in their golden years.
Based in the Chicagoland area, Young at Heart has been working on the first ever Illinois adoption center and sanctuary for our senior friends, a place where age is just a number.
This incredible haven allows cats and dogs to not only roam in a cage-free environment but are provided the proper food and medical treatment necessary for relief. The devotion that YAH members, donors, and volunteers demonstrate, truly reminds us that love has no bounds. We couldn’t be more thrilled to support YAH and we appreciate all the work they are doing for our senior pals!

Every year on August 1st we celebrate Dogust! Dogust is a dedicated day where we celebrate all Rescue dog's birthdays. Many rescue owners don't know the exact birthday of their pups, and Dogust is a special day to send love to all rescues (those who are awaiting adoption and those who have found their forever homes). We stopped by Wags n Walks for the festivities, and there's nothing better than seeing the joy on the dog's faces as we helped them to celebrate!
