Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoptions
Woodstock , IL 60098
Young at Heart’s mission is to provide senior dogs and cats with a safe haven to ensure they live with comfort, compassion, and companionship in their golden years.
We are Chicagoland’s first adoption center & sanctuary just for senior dogs and cats. This safe haven is our homestead; a place where more dogs and cats get a second chance at a loving home, a place where age is just a number, and a place where the care and comfort of those with greyer muzzles and stiffer joints than their younger counterparts come first and foremost. A place where all senior pets can find their happily ever after.
We are a non-profit 501c3 volunteer-based organization that operates with a small staff and an army of dedicated volunteers. We receive no federal or state funding, and rely solely on the generosity of pet-lovers, fundraisers, and grants to support our mission and our rescued animals.

I am also a Scuba Diving Instructor and a competitive skydiver, so training and coaching is an integral part of my hobbies
I work as the Animal Wellness Manager with Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoption Centre in Woodstock Illinois.
I’m responsible for the ongoing care, comfort, health and wellness for the senior dogs and cats in our care. Our small team take care of up to 50 seniors in a cage less facility, and as they are seniors, there’s usually a lot of ‘caring’ to do!
As part of our commitment to both animal care and to continuous improvement, the Animal Care Team requested Animal CPR training. We engaged Pet Tech and were encouraged to train a team member and have me train the team - so here I am!
We are excited to be able to offer this programme exclusively through Young at Heart to our compassionate staff, amazing volunteers, wonderful foster parents and our great adoptive pet parents
