Contribute to a cozier stay

Have you heard about our awesome senior dog program? It’s a great initiative that gives senior dogs in shelters a cozy place to stay while we look for their new home.  We are always in need of help with thing like medical cost, specialized senior dog food, cozy blankets, and toys.  So if you happen to have a little extra cash lying around, why not donate to our Old Friends? It will put a smile on a dogs face, trust us; we’ve seen it first hand. Not to mention its just plain good karma, and who doesn’t love good karma? Come on, help us make a difference in these senior dogs life’s.

Our Adoption Process

We are located in Dutchess County, NY. The dogs in our care come from shelters and rescues across the country.

The dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. While we don’t charge adoption fees, we welcome donations to further help us achieve our goal of bringing dogs and people together to end discrimination.

We view all of our dogs and potential adopters as individuals. We make our matches on an adopter’s lifestyle and a dog’s needs and preferences.

We spend quality time with the dogs every day and put them in unique situations so that we can learn as much as possible about them. They get regular exercise, basic obedience training, and daily interactions with people and other animals. They enjoy outings where they experience real-life situations in public and sleepovers with AFF guests.

Shelter registration number: RR286

Our dogs are individuals

The majority of shelter dogs in the United States are mixed breed dogs of unknown parentage. Shelters typically use visual breed identification (based only on physical appearances) to assign a breed to the dogs in their care. Visual breed identification has been proven inaccurate and unreliable by science. Unless a dog comes with pedigree papers or is the known offspring of two registered purebred dogs, we don’t make guesses about what breed they are.

What a dog looks like tells us nothing about his behavior or personality, so it is much more appropriate to see each dog as an individual.
