Mission Statement

Helping our old friends find new homes where they can live out their days happily ever after!

Description

Our story begins with our own personal senior dogs, Tobie and Marjye. Marjye fell ill in the fall of 2012 and sadly Tobie died a day before her, very suddenly and unexpectedly. The void that was left, was too much to bear. We decided to fill that void by bringing another dog into our lives.

Because rescue was all we knew, it only seemed appropriate to adopt a dog from a shelter. We found Norman through Facebook, in Mansfield OH. We rescued him and had never known the kind of love we experienced until meeting him. Norman led our hearts to want to save another senior dog. We rescued Murphy from a very high kill shelter the day he was to be euthanized. We felt our family was complete, until Kirby’s picture was posted on Facebook. After having saved 4 dogs to replace the 2 we lost, we realized something was happening here.

Lucky was also posted on Facebook and was deemed difficult to adopt because he had shown aggression. We networked him for weeks and weeks and finally broke down and drove 254 miles, one way to Mansfield, OH to meet him and take him home. At that point we had already decided to make our move to open a rescue.Bluegrass Senior Dog Rescue was founded March 23, 2013, with the vision of saving unwanted senior dogs from mostly high kill shelters.
