Donation Day: Young at Heart Senior Rescue

May 13, 2019 2 min read

 "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!

How to Support Young at Heart All Year Long

To continue supporting YAH, please use code “youngatheart15” at check out to receive 15% off your entire order and a portion of your purchase will be donated to this amazing rescue.

From the entire Grounds & Hounds team, we want to extend sincere thanks to every single person who has supported our mission and our rescue friends. And thank you to  Young at Heart for allowing us to play a small part in your big dream!
