Since shelters need to focus much of their attention and efforts on providing food and shelter for animals in need, the shelter pets that are in transition are often left without the little “extras” that bring them comfort.
Additionally, senior dogs often have it the hardest. Many senior dogs end up being overlooked for younger dogs and might be in a shelter, rescue or foster home for longer then anticipated. Living in a shelter for an older pet can take a toll on the dog's body. Many senior pets need more warmth, special food and treats that are softer and easier to chew, and more vitamin assistance than younger dogs typically need. Shelters may also have trouble supplying vitamins and supplements that help with joint issues that are needed by older fur babies.
These senior dogs may have had comfort in their old lives, or may have been living on the streets - no matter where they are coming from, they need your help now.
With the purchase of one of these packages, you can improve a senior dog's life and make their stay at a shelter, rescue or foster home as comfortable and as restful as possible until they find their fur-ever home!
Silver Package includes a soft and comfy blanket. This package also includes two non-slip bowls so the dog can rest easy while they stay hydrated and eat their meals.
Gold Package includes a blanket for comfort and support and a bag of soft treats that are a healthier option for a senior dog's digestive system. These small treats are easier to chew and can aid in additional training for a senior dog, to help them get adopted sooner. This package also includes Riley's Multi Essentials Powder. This powder provides senior dogs with daily vitamins, organic minerals, antioxidants, and other nutritious ingredients including milk thistle and kelp. Mixed with food this Multi Essentials Powder ensures dogs are getting the nutrients they need.
Platinum Package contains a bag of soft treats, a large blanket for comfort, Multi Essentials Powder, two non-slip pet dishes, and joint supplements. The supplement is a soft chew that supports joint function, flexibility and healthy joint cartilage. As canines get older it can be harder and harder for them to get up and get moving as their joints don't work like they used to. Providing senior dogs with this chew gives these dogs a chance to feel a bit better and increase their mobility.

I work in a retirement community for seniors, so I see what a huge difference it makes in a person's life when a senior is given extra love, care and attention. Senior animals benefit hugely, too, and it does my heart good to help them. My husband and I adopted a 12 year old cat with health issues who was found on the streets, and even though we only had him for three years, he was the dearest, most appreciative, happy, affectionate and wonderful cat. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. Helping a senior animal is the best.
