Old Dog Haven

Lisa Smith-Putnam on Pet Life Radio

Your Pets My Dogs along with our Host Lisa Smith-Putnam welcomes Judith Piper. Judith along with her husband Lee is the Founder and Executive Director of a fabulous organization called Old Dog Haven! If GOD could only make a few more Judith's in the world, what a life it would be for ALL dogs/fur babies that need care in their senior age. Bless her and her organization for what they do! Many great dogs are awaiting a new home with just the right family.

Could you care for a homeless senior dog for up to 4 months? This would involve giving gentle attention to a dog who might have special needs and might at first be confused or frightened, taking the dog to the vet and caring for medical needs, and helping us select the right adopter. Could you provide long-term care to one of the oldest dogs? If you could provide the TLC to the end of the dog's life Old Dog Haven covers the veterinary expenses. We think you could!

There is such reward in giving comfort and love to an old creature who really needs it. Old Dog Haven is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization. They do what they do out of LOVE and rely on donations and fund-raising activities for its income. They do not receive any state or federal funds. We here at Your Pets My Dogs salute Old Dog Haven for doing what they do! Woof to you!

Every senior pet and animal should have the opportunity to be loved and have love till the end of their days...if this makes sense to you, then you don't want to miss this show. Our Host Lisa Smith-Putnam explores all the reasons why someone might surrender their senior pet(s) with Ms. Judith Piper and believe you me, it or not as Lisa found out, the reasons that you might be thinking. Enjoy the show!


Old Dog Haven is a network of private homes helping homeless senior dogs age 8 and over, who have been abandoned or will become homeless at this stage of their lives. This may include: Taking the older dogs into our homes and caring for them as members of the family as long as they have good quality of life, with preference to the oldest dogs including hospice situations; Taking dogs with a reasonable life expectancy into temporary foster homes and placing them in a permanent home with people who will devote themselves to the dog; Assisting owners in placing their senior dog into an appropriate new home, without asking for compensation.

The goal is to  keep these dogs as healthy and comfortable as possible by providing excellent veterinary care, without heroic measures intended only to extend life.

Old Dog Haven is committed to help these dogs find peace in their last years, regardless of our judgment of the humans who have left them.
