"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. Since our start in 2011, it has been our mission to provide the best possible long term care for displaced *senior German Shepherds.  

* Senior being 8 years and older.

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