What is the Classic Canines organization? We are an organization of shelter volunteers and advocates who have been promoting opportunities for senior dogs since Oct 2012. There are no paid positions and all funds raised are used directly for dogs over the age of 7 in Austin animal shelters. Donations go towards paying for medical needs of our seniors and many other goodies. Classic Canines also have waived adoption fees!
Our Mission: To reduce shelter stay times for senior dogs within public and private shelter systems, Classic Canines locates foster, adoption and rescue opportunities for these dogs while educating the public about the many benefits of adopting senior dogs and removing barriers to adopting such dogs enabling senior dogs to move quickly into well matched homes, thereby saving public funds by freeing up kennel space, reducing deaths in this vulnerable population due to shelter space overcrowding, and promoting animal protection and animal welfare.
Why Adopt a Senior Dog? In one word – simple – really, they are! You get the benefit of a dog that knows the ropes, is house trained, knows a few commands, and may have easier energy demands than their young counterparts. What about those puppy mayhem days? Well those days are best left in the past! We like to say the Classics have “adjustable energy”, active when you want, for excursions, and ready to chill out for movie night when you want to slow down. Many can self-manage at home alone for a full work day. In today’s world where life changes will come more frequently, committing to a new pup for 10-15 years may not be a good fit for your particular lifestyle but having a fur friend for 1-5 years may be a great choice. A shelter pet never forget who rescued him/her! They’re so grateful! Do your heart good by helping a senior dog in need.
