What’s better than a sweet old Bluetick Coon Hound? Bosley is one fine man weighing in at 90lbs! He is a lover of people and other dogs. He might steal your toy but we will never fight him for it! His favorite toy here is his teddy bear. Bosley has blastomycosis, a fungal disease that will take about three months to cure. He is also heartworm positive and will take about six month to rid of them. Since this sweet old man has a slow course of action for both heartworm and fungal disease, he will need to go to a home with a foster who is willing to keep up his treatments. After he is given a clean bill of health he will be able to be neutered. Heartworm and Blastomycosis are rarely transfered to other pets in the home as long as they are on proper prevention. Who wouldn’t want a big hunk-o-love like Bosley to keep them warm at night?
By sponsoring one of our dogs living at the sanctuary you will help give them a comfortable retirement, provide medical care and food! You will be recognized on the sponsored dog’s page for your one year sponsorship. All of our dogs receive a thorough veterinary exam, blood work, possible teeth cleaning and extractions, vaccines, and microchips. Some of the dogs also need laser therapy for arthritis, chemotherapy, hip surgery and many other specialty services. With your sponsorship you can help provide quality vet care!
You are able to choose to sponsor food for 1 year for $500, medical care for 1 year for $1,000 or all expenses for 1 year for $2,500.
If the dog you are sponsoring passes away during your time of sponsorship your donation will be used to provide quality vet care to another senior dog in our program.

Hi Forever Foster Parent(s)!
Our primary goal at OFSDS is to find lifelong placements for senior dogs where they can live the remainder of their lives as a part of a family. Most of our Old Friends that you see at the Sanctuary are available through our forever foster program.
Through sponsorships, donations and grants we will provide medical care and basic needs to the dogs living in our foster homes.
Fostering for OFSDS is different than fostering for other rescues in that we hope that our fosters will be “forever” homes for the remainder of their Old Friend’s life. Although adoption is not expected, we will sometimes allow our fosters to adopt dogs from us, however, all adoptions must start as Foster Families. Foster homes must be within 100 miles of Mount Juliet, TN.
Because our main goal is to place senior and un-adoptable dogs in safe, lifetime placements, we do not charge any fees.
