It’s not just people that need a little extra tender loving care as they get older. Man’s best friends do too. And since 2015, abandonned senior canines in New Jersey have a place to grow old gracefully, ensuring that they enjoy the years they have left and that they get the medical attention they need to do so.
Marty’s Place Senior Dog Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that helps care for dogs ages 7 and older that need a forever home. The pooches come from shelters, rescues, or owners who can no longer care for them due to the owner’s illness or death, financial hardship, or relocation to an assisted living facility or elsewhere.
With an 8,000-square-foot facility on 25 acres and space for up to 40 dogs, Marty’s Place sees dogs of all activity levels on its grounds – from the very active to those nearing hospice care. They even have an in-ground saltwater pool for the residents who can swim!
But mostly, the pooches end up living out their days doing what they love best – whether that’s walking the grounds, lounging on a couch, or cuddling up next to their caretakers.
