Old Dog Haven is Front Page News!

Judith Piper, an Old Dog Haven founder, comforts a homeless blind senior dog.

What a delight it was for me to pull my newspaper out of the box yesterday morning and see that Old Dog Haven, one of the first rescues to sign up with Art Helping Animals, was featured on the front page!

Old Dog Haven is a rescue devoted exclusively to finding homes or providing hospice care to homeless senior dogs. Since their start in 2004, Lee and Judith Piper (Old Dog Haven founders), have created a network of almost 50 foster homes in Washington State. The number of dogs this group has helped is truly amazing. In 2006 alone they helped over 300 abandoned seniors into new homes, foster care or final refuge homes. Their service in the community is making a huge difference in the lives of older dogs that often find themselves in animals shelters being passed over for the puppies and younger dogs.
