Steal a Heart, Save a Life!

Who stole your heart? If your heart was stolen by a senior dog, you know how lucky you are. Sadly, many older dogs aren't so fortunate.

Plus, every $ you donate will be matched up to $10,000 by 4 generous dog-loving supporters.

Gloria stole Staycee’s heart 

Gloria’s journey to freedom, love and a new life began on Independence Day. That’s when fireworks cause many dogs to bolt and shelters to be overwhelmed with lost pets. It’s also the worst time of year for senior dogs like Gloria, who have been at the shelter the longest and are at the highest risk for euthanasia.

Fortunately, the 16-year-old Chihuahua was among 82 dogs pulled from Southern California shelters last July as part of Live Love Animal Rescue’s #FosterThe4th initiative. Thanks to a Grey Muzzle grant that you made possible, Live Love’s team knew they had the resources to provide Gloria and other senior dogs they rescued with desperately needed veterinary care. 

Sweet, tiny Gloria quickly became a favorite with all the volunteers, who showered her with attention. Everyone fell in love with this adorable little girl and knew she would make a perfect companion for the right person.

A few weeks after Gloria was rescued, the local shelter director, Staycee, reached out to Live Love and said, "I haven’t been able to get Gloria out of my mind!"

Gloria stole Staycee’s heart, but Staycee said she could keep it. And now, they live happily ever after together. Your support helps senior dogs find their perfect match. Please make a gift today!
