Vintage Paws, a non-profit 501(c)(3) senior dog sanctuary, was started in 2012 by Jennifer Hummel, a long-time animal lover and owner of ACE Pet Resort. Jennifer experienced first-hand the devastating plight of senior dogs when their owners can no longer care for them. When Jennifer was 16, her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her mother knew that when she passed, her teenage daughters would be unable to afford care for their three senior dogs, let alone care for themselves. When the end was near, Jennifer’s mother made the difficult decision to bring the dogs to a local animal shelter. Due to their age and health conditions, they were almost certainly euthanized.
Fast forward to 2004, when ACE Pet Resort opened its doors. From its inception, ACE provided a home for wayward senior dogs. Some live out the remainder of their lives here, being given the medical attention they need and the love they deserve. Others have been placed in their own forever homes.
Due to the coronavirus, not only is ACE's ability to provide a space for our senior dogs being threatened, but we have amassed a substantial bill at our veterinarian's office, whose own small business is being affected. We need to be able to provide veterinary care for the 40 plus senior dogs in our care.
Please help us continue helping them. #olddogsrock
