Transfer Application

Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary provides a loving, final home for senior dogs.

In support of that purpose, we typically only accept applications for dogs aged 12 and older. Any applications for a dog under 12 years of age must include details of a health diagnosis that indicates hospice/end-of-life care is needed.

If you are needing assistance with more than one dog, please fill out a form for each individual dog.

Behavioral Information

Whispering Willows is a cage free facility. We have a very unique set up, unlike most other rescues. To ensure all staff members and resident seniors remain in a safe environment a behavior profile is required before a final determination on intake can be made. Please answer the questions below with as little emotion as possible, but be descriptive (e.g. ears back, hiding beneath a chair, growling, stiff body posture etc.). Please note that undesirable behavior traits do not automatically disqualify a senior for placement with the sanctuary. Honest, detailed answers will help us to determine the best course of action for each senior and ensure our resident dogs and staff members remain as safe and happy as possible. Thank you for your cooperation!

Surrender and Transportation

Individuals seeking to surrender a dog will be subject to a surrender fee. This fee must be paid before or at the time of the surrender *NO EXCEPTIONS*
I understand that if my application is considered for intake of this dog, I will be contaced by a representative of Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary, and that I MUST submit a video to show the disposition of this dog interacting with another dog. I understand that if I do not submit a video upon request, consideration for acceptance of this dog will end.

Due to the high demand of rescue assistance, we are not able to take every senior. Also, every dog is not a candidate for the sanctuary.

Please understand that we review all requests, but may not be able to respond to your inquiry.

We receive high volumes of requests, so please do not submit multiple inquires (applications/email/phone/text/IM) for the same dog.

The only method for being placed on the waiting list is a complete application.

PLEASE NOTE: After placement of this dog with Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary, communication will be available ONLY in the form of viewing update posts on social media. We receive too many requests for updates about our pets to respond to them all.
