Opening in Late 2023


Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary is excited to announce our newest branch of exceptional dog care: Happy Even After at Flo’s Front Porch. Fulfilling a need for those who wish to ensure their beloved dogs are cared for when they no longer can, Flo’s Front Porch is the first of its kind perPETual care community in the Southeast. This world-class neighborhood will feature eleven unique cottages with a true home layout and “pup”-scale amenities.


Each cottage will have three bedrooms with individual yards and indoor/outdoor access, a living room, covered porch, kitchen, and dedicated caretakers. Residents will be provided with high-quality vet care and food, on-site grooming, 24-hour supervision, and more. The community will have a trail for year-round outdoor exploration and a water feature for summer fun.


Upon enrollment, each resident will be given the option to live at Flo’s Front Porch for the remainder of their life or have the opportunity to be placed into a forever foster home while still receiving access to all amenities.


More information about Happy Even After at Flo’s Front Porch, including enrollment details, is forthcoming.


Florence arrived at Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary in 2017 after being displaced by Hurricane Irma. She is blind due to retinal atrophy, but it doesn't stop her from exploring and going on adventures! Florence lived happily at the sanctuary for four years, receiving lots of love and attention from our staff and volunteers, until one of those volunteers decided it was time to give Flo her own family. Flo's Front Porch is proudly named after this sweet girl who proves that you can still be happy, even after life's storms.

Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary is a Forever Foster Home based Sanctuary in beautiful Mount Juliet, Tennessee, generally housing approximately 120 senior dogs at the Sanctuary and others in temporary and Forever Foster Homes. While providing lifetime homes for senior dogs, OFSDS strives to raise awareness of the joys and challenges of living with older dogs. We are a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. We do not concern ourselves with the quantity of time that they have left, rather the quality of the life that we can provide them for that time.
