Old Dogs New Digs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, comprised of volunteers, dedicated to helping homeless and displaced senior dogs. We partner closely with shelters and rescues, who have ownership of the dog, to assist with getting the dog into a loving foster or forever home. 100% of the funds we raise support the health and well-being of these dogs.
We are a network of volunteers who have made connections with animal shelters and dog rescues – mostly in Maine, Colorado, New Mexico, and Costa Rica. When we learn of a senior dog in need, whether it’s help with placement in a foster or forever home, financial assistance with vet care, or to help offset the cost of special food or medications, we spring into action! We also can assist a family who has fallen on hard times, unable to afford quality food and medical care for their aging dog, so the dog doesn’t have to leave the home.
Old Dogs New Digs is not a shelter – we aim to keep senior dogs out of the shelter environment. So, we assist shelters and rescues with finding short- and long- term foster homes, as well as hospice homes for dogs who are at the end of their lives. We always welcome new foster home families to join the network so that each dog’s unique needs are more likely to be met. If you are interested in providing foster or hospice care to an old dog, please complete the Foster Survey. Once approved, you can let us know when you are interested in fostering a certain dog (our Facebook page is great place to look for opportunities!). Then, we’ll connect you with the shelter or rescue, and continue to offer assistance once the dog is in your home.
