Old Souls Animal Rescue and Retirement Home is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue founded to give geriatric, special needs, and hospice animals a dignified end of life surrounded by love. It’s hard to imagine, but many animals are abandoned in their old age because they require more intensive care and are no longer playful. At Old Souls, we seek out these animals, particularly those who are within weeks or months of going to the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes they live for only a few days, but other times, they surprise us and live well beyond their expected years. At Old Souls, animals spend their time resting on orthopedic beds, eating delicious healthy food, taking just enough medicine to keep them comfortable, and sharing their lives with other old animals. They truly become part of a loving family, many times for the first time in their lives. While rescuing these animals always results in tears, we believe that no old animal should have to die alone and scared in a shelter or on the streets, so we give them the dignified end of life they deserve, and in return they give us endless happiness and incredible memories of their loyal loving spirits.
