We Provide In-Need Senior Dogs A Lifetime of Love
and we created Pepper's Senior Dog Sanctuary to be:
An Animal Sanctuary and Hands-On Community Partner
Along with serving as a safe haven and retirement home for senior dogs who can’t find homes, we are a valuable community resource. Our dogs still have so much love to give and we partner with service organizations to pair them up with human friends. To date, we’ve brought our senior dogs to events sponsored by awareness organizations focusing on autism, sobriety, veteran’s needs, and senior citizens groups. When individuals have the chance to interact with our senior dogs, it’s truly therapeutic for everyone.
The Ultimate Retirement Community
We offer senior dogs a home for life—and it’s a beautiful place to call home. Unlike some other senior dog rescues, our dogs are not for adoption. We are a true sanctuary and we only accept senior dogs from shelters, rescue groups, and dedicated dog care facilities. Once they’re on our spacious 50-acre property in beautiful Roxborough, Colorado, they live out their days with superior care, love, comfort, and tail-wagging
A Mission-Driven Organization Welcoming Volunteers & Donations
While the sanctuary is supported financially in part by our founders, we are powered by individual donations, gifts, and volunteers. More money = more mission, meaning that the more people who support the sanctuary, the more seniors we can get out of local shelters, leaving space for other dogs in need and ultimately lowering euthanasia of dogs who deserve a second ‘leash on life’ in our community.
We Embrace the Sweetness, Sass, and Everything In Between
Our cast of characters continues to grow. Meet some of our beloved and
boundlessly happy senior dogs:
