Unless you have been living under a rock for the entirety of your existence, you are probably well aware of the existence of the retirement home. They provide a safe sanctuary for seniors during their golden years, allowing them to age gracefully and receive the help that they need on site. But did you know that retirement homes are not just for seniors anymore? In fact, there are now rest home for our furry friends who are in need of tender, loving care as they reach old age. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this clip from a dog retirement home in Gaithersburg, Maryland. They are truly dedicated to ensuring a restful stay for all of their clients.
This doggy retirement home provides a place to stay for at least two dozen elderly dogs. A team of volunteers is on hand to make sure that all of these dogs’ needs are met and it is truly heartwarming to see such selfless people taking the time to ensure that these dogs’ twilight years are spent in total comfort and safety. How many times have you been out and about, only to see an old, sad dog who clearly no longer has a home or people to love them? If you’re anything like us, it breaks your heart every single time that you catch a glimpse of it, without fail.
That is why it is so great to see clips these, where people are allowing themselves to make a true difference in the lifespan of an animal, in a manner that is completely selfless. These workers are volunteering their time out of the goodness of their heart, not for fifteen minutes of fame or monetary gains of some kind.
No matter what these dogs need, they are attended to, in a manner that is not only professional, but also loving. Older dogs require more help to get through each day than their younger counterparts and having a staff on hand that recognizes this reality makes a world of difference.
