Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) is pleased to announce the debut of a new Senior Care Program!

As many already know, senior dogs are often overlooked due to actual or anticipated medical costs.  As a result, these wonderful dogs may spend their golden years languishing in a shelter environment, which is truly heartbreaking.  Via a pilot Senior Care Program, FOHA is encouraging the adoption of senior dogs, defined as dogs eight years or older, through various incentives.  Specifically, FOHA will waive the adoption fee for senior dogs and reimburse up to $1,500 in qualifying medical expenses or up to $1,500 in pet insurance premiums.  Funding for this program is obtained through the generous support of donors, committed to saving senior dogs, who have specifically earmarked monies to support this wonderful cause.  If you would like to make a donation to help support this program, please contact Rob Mock at

We are so excited to launch this pilot program.  To that end, if you are able to welcome a senior dog into your home, please consider taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity.  Any questions can be directed to Rob Mock at

Yoko, Hopper, Bella, Cyra, and the other eligible graying muzzles, appreciate your support.




We love senior pups!  Why you ask?  Because they are past the destruction stage, but fully into the loving, patient and grateful stage.  They are still active, but they no longer care so much about climbing Mt Everest, a nice sunset viewing from the base of the mountain will do.  We have adopted several senior pups from FOHA over the years and while people say they aren't with you as many years as a pup we can tell you that the years they are with you are the most rewarding and fulfilling years you will ever experience with them by your side.  You can also think of their time with you in dog years!  If you haven't adopted a senior pup, please consider doing so.  If you have adopted a senior pup and are thinking of adding a member to your family, please give a FOHA senior pup his or her forever home.  Trust us, you will be forever grateful that you did.

There is nothing more endearing than a dog with a graying muzzle.  When you look into their soulful eyes, you know they are so grateful to have a home.  Over the years, we have adopted several senior dogs of varying sizes and temperaments.  All were a perfect addition to our family.  At the end of a hectic day, they are a calming influence – which is often exactly what we need.  Even if their time with us is limited, we are, nonetheless, blessed with cherished memories that we would not trade for anything.  Quality of time trumps quantity of time.  So, via this testimonial, we make a plea for others to adopt a senior dog.  Give them the chance to spend their golden years enjoying the comforts of loving home.
