North Yarmouth, ME -- Finally Home Senior Dog Rescue and Retirement Home announces the establishment of two funds available to the public to help provide care for senior dogs: the Sierra Fund and Teddy’s Friends.
The Sierra Fund, named for founder Laurie Dorr’s Australian Shepherd who passed away at 16, will help qualified Maine residents with older dogs pay for vet care, medications, follow-up visits and other expenses, allowing them to keep their dogs with them. Teddy’s Friends, honoring a senior dog who suffered from severe toxicity, seizures and a brain tumor, rescued from 10 years in an extreme hoarding situation and adopted in late 2022 by Finally Home where he passed away, will help financially challenged Maine seniors pay for end-of-life care for their dogs.
“We believe that if any dog deserves a fund in his honor, it is Teddy,” said Dorr. “His life was marked by unrelenting pain and suffering, and if we can help people avoid that for their dogs, we will do it.”
Finally Home Senior Dog Rescue and Retirement Home adopts and cares for needy senior dogs and networks to help other senior dogs find their “furever” homes.
Please help us celebrate the implementation of these two public funds with a celebration on Thursday, March 2, 6-8 p.m., at Trudy Bird’s Olbar, 424 Walnut Hill Road, North Yarmouth.
