BBS Rescue Spotlight: The Old Dog House, Jacksonville, FL
A couple of weeks ago, Best Bully Sticks held a one day contest where our fans could nominate their favorite rescue or charity to win 30 cases of treats from BBS. We had almost 1000 people vote over an eight-hour period and fans clearly wanted The Old Dog House in Jacksonville, Florida to win. In honor of their win, we thought we would share with our fans a little more about this admirable charity.
As their name suggests, this rescue in Northern Florida’s sole mission is to place older dogs with families. Most individuals or families looking to adopt a dog, really only look at puppies, but The Old Dog House chooses to educate the public of the joys of adding an older or senior dog to their lives.
Our intent is to “rehome” the older and senior dogs we rescue and rehabilitate. Sometimes, “rehoming” is not an option due to medical, behavioral, or physical issues. In these cases, the dog will remain a resident of The Old Dog House for the remainder of their life. We call these dogs 'Permanent Residents'.
Every dog at The Old Dog House is viewed and treated as part of the family. We do not have kennels, runs, or cages, rather they live in a true home environment with all of the comforts of home.”
