GHSDR a small, nonprofit Ohio based senior dog rescue and sanctuary. They take in as many hospice dogs as they responsibly can, and offer them complete medical to ensure a remaining good quality of life, and safe indoor sanctuary and most of all, love. This mission is a financially costly one. Most of the rescues have cancer, in renal failure, are heart worm positive, are immobile, incontinent, and are in the last stages of their life.
