Senior dogs used to sit in shelters for years with little hope for adoption. Well, not anymore! Innovators like Erin Stanton maximize social media for the greater good and helps to move older dogs out of shelters like Animal Haven and into loving homes across the country. Come to Animal Haven on June 17 at 6 PM and meet Erin Stanton and learn about her popular project, Susie’s Senior Dogs while enjoying a drink. This is the first “Learning & Libations” session and we hope you will join us as we share a toast to how Erin engages the animal welfare community to produce successful adoption and awareness results for senior pets.
