st paddys 5k charity

Young at Heart Senior Pet Rescue is the only organization in the state of Illinois that is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming senior dogs and cats of all breeds. At age 7 years or older, the homeless animals we bring into our adoption program are from shelters where they are going to be euthanized simply due to their age. We provide the senior dogs and cats in our care with all the medical, emotional, and physical care that they need, for as long as they need it, until they find a family that recognizes that Love Has No Age Limit (TM).
