Senior Dogs Cherished Treasures
WELCOME Senior Dogs lovers!
Founded in 2005 SDR aimed, and managed, to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs taken from death row in NSW pounds.
Years have passed and we are now full of seniors who, due to complicated health issues, have retired to become 'Cherished Treasures' and we have no vacancies left to care for any more older dogs.
SDR is now focused solely on the Treasures and will not be able to take in any rescues for the foreseeable future.
All of the Treasures receive the best of care, vet care, food, medication, supplements and therapy in loving private homes.
If you would like to assist with the cost of the ongoing care for the Cherished Treasures please follow this link:

Please do not contact me regarding surrenders or dogs that are in dire need in pounds - we have NO spots available and it is difficult to constantly say - sorry no we can't.
Merry Christmas to all from the SSR critters......
Old dogs, like our shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well.
Dedicated to the Rescuers
One by one, they file past my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way
Way past his time, he can't run and play
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems I am not wanted anymore
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong
I got in their way; my attitude was wrong
Whatever excuse they made in their head
Can't justify how they left me for dead
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day
The younger dogs all get adopted away
When I had almost come to the end of my rope
You saw my face, and I finally had hope
You saw through the grey and the legs bent with age
And felt that I still had life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head
We snuggle and play and you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, you want me to know
I may have lived most of my life with another
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger
And I promise to return all the love I can give
To you, my dear person, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week or for years
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
And when I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all that will hear
Of the person who made my last days oh so beautiful
