"We are that place in the country where old dogs come to retire."









Woody’s Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Greentown, Pa.  We rely solely on volunteers who share a common goal of providing a safe and loving forever home to abandoned *senior German Shepherds throughout their golden years.

  "We are that place in the country where old dogs come to retire".

Since our start in 2011, it has been our mission is to provide the best possible long term care for abandoned senior German Shepherds in and around the Pennsylvania area who are deemed unadoptable due to age and/or minor health issues.  We are open to taking senior German Shepherds in need outside of the PA area if and when we have space and funds.

It is our philosophy that it is of the utmost importance that these loving, and often overlooked abandoned senior German Shepherds have the opportunity to live the best possible life we can offer. They are just as deserving as their younger counterparts.

* Senior being 8 years and older.
