Senior pets that find themselves on death row at traditional shelters deserve that same love, and at Young at Heart, we work every day to save as many senior dogs and cats as we can. And you can make a difference simply by putting on your walking shoes!

Whether you want to join our 7th Mutt Mosey fundraiser walk in person or participate from afar, we invite you to take the first step toward saving more senior pets in shelters by registering and creating a fundraising page. Together, we can all make a BIG difference! Our goal is a big one - $30,000- but that will save SO many lives when we reach it!!


All registrants are invited to join us after the Mutt Mosey for a lunch celebration. Additional guests who are not registered for the Mosey may purchase tickets on site for $15 each.

Raffles, auction items, pet-related vendors, bake sale and more! Don't miss out on this fun day that celebrates and saves the lives of senior pets!


Top 3 Individual Fundraisers Prize: You will get to experience being a "Senior Pet Rescuer for a Day!" You will spend the day with the director and assistant director of Young at Heart and be a part of an actual in-the-field rescue of a senior dog or cat from a shelter. Don't worry, we'll only let you experience the heartwarming part of rescue, and believe us, your heart will melt when that sweet senior pet that you had a hand in saving looks up at you with those grateful eyes! Ride along in the rescue van to a local open-admission shelter where you will assist in all aspects of saving a senior dog and cat in need. The adventure will continue with a behind-the-scenes look at the vetting that goes into all of our seniors along side our veterinarian. Once our newly rescued pet is tucked in safe and sound after a vet exam, we'll take you to lunch! Top the day off with a Young at Heart shirt and hoodie to take home, and lots of photos to remember your adventure! We'll document the entire day on both our Facebook page and our enewsletter, and you'll be rescue superstars! As an added bonus, the 1st place Individual Fundraiser will get to name the newly rescued pet! This is an experience you won't want to miss!

Prizes also offered for the top fundraising Family/Team!

Can't join us on May 24th? You can still create a fundraising team and help save the lives of older pets in shelters! Create a page, recruit your pet-loving friends, and help build a brighter future for those grey muzzled dogs and chubby senior kitties that need us. They need YOU to make a difference for their future!

Thank you for believing that senior pets deserve a second chance at a happily ever after!
