Senior Dog Rescue & Forever Medical Coverage Program

Rescue a senior dog

Most of our senior dogs are rescued from private owners in crisis, or people unable or unwilling to care for their senior dogs. We also take in rescues from local shelters around the Greater Pittsburgh area, animal control, and other rescue groups.

Medical costs are one of the most common reasons people shy away from rescuing senior dogs, which is why every one of the dogs we place is eligible for medical financial support. Gray Paws provides that financial security so the dog can be loved and cared for until the end of life without financial burden to the family who decides to be a Forever Foster family. All of our work is done as a public service and there are no payments to anyone involved. There are no fees, ever.

If you’re interested in providing a loving home to an older dog, all of our available dogs are posted on our Gray Paws Sanctuary Facebook page. Find your perfect match with Gray Paws and enjoy the loving, loyal companionship of a senior dog today!


Age Requirements:

Large dogs (>40 pounds+) must be 10 or older
Small dogs (<40 pounds) must be 12 or older
