My name is Cheryl Gustafson and I am a strong advocate for our senior dogs. At this current time i have three rescued seniors who will live out their last days with me in their home. I am hoping to start up a hospice center for dogs in my hometown of Red Wing, MN but am still in the "dream stages". However, I have a Cause on FB (inspired by my dog while caring for her at home) called Hospice Care for Old and Dying dogs. We now have 26,000 members who feel the same way I do.
I always love to read posts about our seniors and want to thank you for yours.
