A helping hand for old hounds, SOS Foyers Chiens Agés
A new refuge for elderly dogs has opened on the road between Cabris and St-Vallier-de-Thiey. SOS Foyers Chiens Agés provides shelter for dogs of all shapes and sizes (sick, lame, blind, elderly) which other charities are not able or willing to accept. It also looks after dogs whose owners can no longer keep at home but do not want to give up.
The Old Dogs’ Home needs your support and anything you can give – blankets, washable duvets, sheets, small mattresses or even bags of light food for “old tums” – will be appreciated by the more than 50 current “residents”. And of course money is always very welcome. A building programme is underway to provide more shelter for the coming winter. SOS Foyers Chiens Agés is a registered charity (Association loi 1901), so you can also help by becoming a member.
Located about 12km from Grasse in St-Vallier-de Thiey (3 route de Cabris), the Old Dogs’ Home is open to the public Mon-Sat 10h-noon and 14h-17h. Visitors will be greeted enthusiastically by wagging tails.
