To save senior animals who are often overlooked by providing them the opportunity to thrive in a safe and caring environment.
Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is the only senior-only animal rescues in Maricopa County, Arizona. Formed in 2012 as a non-profit 501[c] organization, the focus of FLPS is to save promote the rescue, adoption, and well-being of senior animals. FLPS also provides public education regarding the value of adopting a senior pet. FLPS serves a public need by offering housing and lots of love to senior pets until they are adopted.
This safe haven, takes the burden of temporary care and housing of senior animals off of local shelters. Inevitably, local shelters resort to euthanizing these abandoned, senior animals at an alarming rate. FLPS works with local shelters, rescues, and the community to identify the senior animals in need and provide a streamlined process for people who wish to adopt.
