While some of us are still putting away holiday decorations, our elected representatives and a myriad of advocates - including AARP – are preparing for January 14, when the 105-day state legislative session begins.

Let’s recruit loving families that are willing and able to care for elder canines over 8 years old AND we’ll start a non-profit, Old Dog Haven, to raise money to help pay for any medical costs that might be needed.
