πŸŒˆβ€οΈπŸΎπŸ™πŸ» As part of our weekend remembering Pirate’s angel day.. we picked up a bunch of toys, which in the three videos you can see the boys loved sniffing through (can you find the carrots in the photo?), and we took them a senior dog sanctuary here in Missouri. Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary was one of the most remarkable places I have ever been to. The spirit there was everything and the founder spoke words like I feel in my heart. Their mission is to give senior dogs their last and final home, full of dignity and love, before their time comes to cross the rainbow bridge. Whispering Willows ( @whisperingwillows_sds ) has only been running as a sanctuary for about 3 years and what they have been able to do with the sanctuary in that time is absolutely extraordinary. They currently have about 67 dogs who are mainly hospice or senior dogs and has so far helped almost 300 babies on their final journey home, showing them profound love before their time comes. The only type of β€œkennel” area has little sections of what she calls suites where some of the more independent dogs sleep at night that are completely open on top and she plays white noise sounds and displays twinkling lights on the ceiling for them. The dogs that need 24 hour care stay in her home during the night and during the day all dogs are allowed to roam the home, small buildings, and entire 3 acre property which completely lights up at night anytime they would like as she has screens on all doors that allow them to move about anywhere as they please. Just from donations alone she has been able to staff about 17 people around the clock and that is incredible. Just as I never knew an old, unwanted dog would steal my heart.. I never knew a senior dog sanctuary would become one of my favorite places on earth! I’ll be sharing some more photos of their beautiful babies in a second post.. I know Pirate is happy to see places like this πŸŒˆβ€οΈπŸΎπŸ™πŸ»

  1. I love this so much! Having taken care of a few senior dogs over the years, I know how hard it is. What a blessing! Thank you for sharing the good news that this place exists and that people care enough to make it happen. ❀
