“Love is ageless.”

 Your donations will go directly to finishing our Safe Space for Seniors House which enables us to rescue old and abandoned dogs.  So many are “thrown away” when they need a little bit of extra care or their person is going into a hospital/nursing home because no family member will step up and take in the formerly beloved pet. 

Paws Unlimited's mission is to save and care for these abandoned dogs. The Senior House needs to install heating in cool weather, air conditioning in warm weather.  We already have large fenced area which we want to build dog door access directly to the fencedyard which gives the seniors ability  to the outdoors whenever they please. 

The space is a large, open and homey area where all the Elders can hang out and snooze orthopedic beds, Veterinary care, food, supplements are provided for each and every dog, plus cuddles and treats. 

Your donations help heal broken hearts and spirits for the elderly (both dogs and people).
Please help our “No Limit on Love” program.

Paws Unlimited is asking for assistance to help continue this lifesaving mission. Please open your heart and donate any amount, great or small. Every dollar goes directly to the final steps of our Senior building. We are so close and with your help we can realize this project.

Springtime is when we would like to begin the work.

Paws Unlimited is a recognized 501(c)3 charity

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Shari & the Seniors

P.S. Contact me if you or anyone you know would like to take home a gift that never stops loving (foster a senior).

We think it will be possible to begin insulating the building in three weeks. This is the first step, new windows are most likely the second step.
We will continue our appeal and (with your help) hope to begin working on interior space soon. The heating/cooling system will be one of the largest and most expensive budget items. We ask that you share this quest. Thank you.
I will begin posting progress photos as work begins.

Why we do this:

Dear Friends,
We received a gift a last year.
Brown, old and wrinkled-it is one of the best presents we could ask for.
Her name is Mabel. She is an old Sharpei, blind and quite deaf. Some kind person pulled her out of a swamp where she was stuck-no one claimed her and she became a Paws Unlimited beloved senior. She is quite the spoiled gal now...the Queen of the office (she decided this would be her room) all her comfy beds and pillows are artfully arranged and rearranged as Mabel sees fit. She sleeps as late as she likes and will allow you to disturb her rest for food and walks.
She recognizes Shari's touch and though she cannot see or hear, she senses the presence of the person she has grown to trust. The knowledge that Mabel can trust and love and wag her slightly bent tail is the very best gift.
We are devoting our resources and energy to give comfort to abandoned older dogs.
To give them a soft and warm place to lay their weary heads for this latter part of their lives. Knowing that they will not starve or freeze nor die alone is what we are here for.
The tragedy of a life that lived to love and serve it's family and then to be tossed aside because they now need extra care or have an occasional accident in the house is heartbreaking. Paws Unlimited exists to care for them, to bring a little joy and comfort and to make sure their "golden years" are golden. They are the most special gifts and we are so lucky to look into the eyes of a senior and see peace and love.
Mabel is only one of the treasures we have been blessed to know.
Paws Unlimited has loving seniors for adoption. We affectionately call them our "Elders"...wise, loving and calm. They are a great addition to a quiet household, particularly for a senior person who would like a companion to lay gently by their side.
We would love to find loving homes for Seniors and till then we want to build a safe and comfortable place for
all of them.
Paws Unlimited is asking for assistance to help continue this lifesaving mission. We sincerely appreciate any amount your heart and wallet can donate.
Warm Regards,

Shari & the Seniors
