This NEW adoption program will enable seniors, that are low income or on a fixed income, to adopt a senior dog that still has so much love to give!

With this program, the senior will adopt a dog from Charming Pet Rescue, with a signed contract that states, if the adopter is no longer able to care for the dog, the dog will always have a place back with the rescue. If a family member wants to step in and adopt the dog at that time, that is an option as well!


How it works

The rescue will cover ALL COSTS the dog incurs, for its lifetime with the senior. Food, annual bloodwork and support of the dog if anything arises due to nature taking its course.


If the senior cannot drive, we will provide transport of the dog to and from the vet*. This means the total cost of the adoption of a senior dog to a senior heart is ZERO! Only their time and love!

*Our adoption with transportation is within a 10 mile radius of Charming Pet Rescue.  Any senior adopter outside that area must have transportation for the pet(s) to/from vet and other appointments. If, at any time, they do not have transportation available the pet(s) will be returned to Charming Pet Rescue.
