Who We Are

Young At Heart is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming senior dogs and cats that wouldn't have much of a chance in our local pounds and shelters because of their age. Mature dogs and cats give so much and expect so little. They know you've rescued them and they respond to a loving touch, soft voice and kind eyes just as we humans do. We rescue them and we find them new forever homes, and they are welcome to stay with us until we are able to find that special someone. Young At Heart Pet Rescue was founded in April of 2005. Our hope is to find a home for every single pet that walks through our door, to educate the public on the benefits of adopting a mature pet, and to decrease the euthanasia rate for older, adoptable pets in Illinois. Adopt a mature or older pet. You won't regret it!

Adopting a friend

All of our animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm or feline leukemia tested, and temperament tested. All dogs are placed on heartworm and flea/tick preventative while in our care. Dogs and cats 7+ years of age also have a geriatric blood panel performed to check for any age-related system ailments (kidney, liver, etc.), lumps are aspirated, and dentals are performed when needed. All adoptions are subject to an adoption application, references, and possibly a home check. ADOPTION FEES: DOGS: $175.00 CATS: $75.00.  FILL OUT OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION AT WWW.ADOPTASENIORPET.COM

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO REHOME A PET: WE DO NOT ACCEPT PETS FROM THE PUBLIC. 100% of our rescued pets come from municipal shelters with high euthanasia rates where a senior dog or cat has very little chance of making it out alive. All of our pets available for adoption were rescued from pounds where they were surrendered for various reasons or became a stray which no one was able to (or wanted to) find.
