Providing Old Friends with a Loving Home for Life

Marty’s Place Senior Dog Sanctuary offers senior dogs physical comfort, emotional care and enrichment in a safe, loving and protected environment.

Our dogs are older – age 7 or beyond - and with us because their long time owners can no longer care for them.

At Marty’s Place, they find a home for life.

Senior Dog Sanctuary...

We think of Marty’s Place as the canine equivalent of an active adult-living facility or horse retirement farm. Our sanctuary building, which can accommodate up to 40 senior dogs in individual living spaces, blends home-like qualities with features specific to housing dogs.
