But some of those adopters go further, selecting pets from programs for dogs in need of hospice care, or what amounts to assisted living for very ill or very old dogs. These programs usually commit to covering the cost of a dog’s medical and dental care, which might otherwise be a major obstacle to finding them homes, said Lisa Lunghofer, executive director of the Maryland-based Grey Muzzle Organization. The donor-funded group gave $225,000 in grants last year to 38 senior dog programs nationwide, several of which now promote hospice adoptions.

Working towards the day when every pet has a loving home
HomeComings Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit, PACFA certified rescue based in Denver, Colorado. Our Mission is to work toward the no-kill solution by rescuing all breeds of dogs, providing homeless dogs with temporary care through our foster care program until we are able to adopt them into a safe and loving permanent home. We promote spaying and neutering to reduce pet overpopulation. We also promote healthy relationships between pets and their people through quality veterinary care, diet, training, patience and most of all, love.All of our adoptions are done at weekly adoption events. Events are first come, first serve and we do not put holds on dogs. All of our dogs are in foster homes since we do not have a facility so they will arrive at the event when their foster brings them. You can fill out an before the event or the day of the event. If you email your application to by noon the Friday before the event, we will process it before the event. You will receive a phone call when your application has been approved or denied. If you are interested in a particular dog or puppy, please get the event on time to increase your chances of getting the dog you want! You will take your new best friend home with you the day of the adoption!!
