There are a ton of unwanted old dogs out there. Through no fault of their own, they find themselves at local shelters, dumped in parking lots, or posted “free to good home” on that yard sale site. We believe that old dogs deserve better.

Old Dog Home rescues old dogs (aged 7+) from Atlanta-area animal shelters and cares for all of their physical, emotional, and medical needs until we can find their “forever families”. We also work to educate the public about caring for their old dogs, in order to keep those dogs safe, happy, and out of the shelter.

Old dogs for everyone!

No matter what kind of old dog you’re looking for, we probably have your perfect match. We have old dogs that love to play, and old dogs that just want to sleep. We have old dogs that need a little extra TLC, and old dogs that still have the body of their youth. We have old dogs that love kids, and old dogs that love (to chase) cats.

Let us help you find the right old dog for you. Click on a photo below for more info.
