Our Mission

We provide senior dogs with a compassionate, forever home, at our family-operated, veterinarian supervised sanctuary. We care for our dogs for all the days of their lives, including hospice needs. We are the premier “dog retirement community” for canines who need us most - forever. We fill a unique need and space in senior dog sanctuaries. While you won’t find shuffleboard at our sanctuary, our seniors have other amenities and supports that make Pepper’s a well-deserved luxury for senior dogs. We provide small group and one-on-one care; enormous space to play, lounge, and sleep kiddie-pool-side; individual bedroom suites designed by Antonio Ballatore from Animal Cribs; professionally trained staff and volunteers; and dedicated physical therapy and medical care. Dogs who become part of the Pepper’s family win the retirement lottery.

We will officially open in 2022 after construction completion of our full-scale sanctuary. We have already welcomed some dogs who currently live with our leadership team and at the sanctuary, and are raising funds to complete our $5 million capital campaign.

Pepper’s only adopts dogs from area shelters and rescues, helping to ease the burden of overcrowding at shelters. The ASPCA estimates that approximately 670,000 dogs who enter U.S. shelters each year are euthanized. Sadly, many of these dogs who are considered seniors and special needs dogs are prematurely or unnecessarily euthanized due to age, special medical needs, testing heartworm positive, or having a disability. At Pepper’s, age and appearances don’t matter – we’re specially equipped to care for elderly and special needs dogs for their entire journey. We DO NOT accept dogs via owner surrenders or drop-offs.
