About Us

Sugar Faces Senior Dog Rescue was founded in July 2014 as Southern Maryland's first organization focused exclusively to rescue senior dogs. Sugar Faces' mission is to match abandoned senior dogs in Southern Maryland to loving families while providing a lifetime of encouragement and support.

We have listened to pet owners, animal lovers and rescuers. We hear the same message over and over - "I would love open my home to an old dog, but due to the costs of care, I don't think I can afford it." Sugar Faces works to break down barriers to saving seniors and builds bridges between dogs in need and loving families. We feel that no senior dog should be denied a great home simply due to a family's limited financial resources. Through our Forever Foster Program, animals are placed in safe, loving homes and their medical care is covered through donations to Sugar Faces.

Terminally ill seniors are placed in our Hospice Program. These dogs are treated in a non-invasive manner that provides them the greatest possible level of comfort for their remaining days.

We truly believe that ALL seniors deserve to live a life of quality and dignity, and our work builds the bridges to make this important difference in the lives of those we are able to save.

To date, 31 seniors have been saved by Sugar Faces volunteers, fosters and supporters. None of our dogs has needed a surgery, medication or vet care that we were not able to provide - THANK YOU for helping us to help them!

Sweet Kashi is searching for a new home. Kashi has until this Sunday August 12 to find a new home or she will be taken to the animal shelter. Kashi is a female miniature Poodle, between 10-11yea old. Kashi is currently spending the majority of her time crated and has had a few accidents in the house. Kashi is not yet spayed. The current owners state that she is sweet but they do not have enough time for her with a new baby. Kashi is very matted and grooming services have been offered free of charge for her first groom. If you or anyone you know is interested in giving this little lady a forever retirement home please let me know ASAP. Kashi would only deteriorate in a kennel and deserves to spend her golden years in someone’s lap ♥️

Wilbur got upgraded to a room with a balcony view! Found out today he has some intestinal parasites so he will be getting some meds. He is such a sweet boy. 💜🐾

Wilbur went to the vet this morning and in addition to the rotten teeth and the neuter that needs to be done, the poor boy also has a tumor on his testicle. Thankfully he was HW negative and had no tick borne illnesses. He has a very slight heart murmur and has about 50% of his vision due to cataracts. Jury is still out on whether or not he is deaf but he hasn’t reacted to any loud noises. His surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday. His stinky (mouth and ears) self spent the day at work with me. Thank goodness I have a lavender Scentsy in my office - sir Pepe le Pew!!

Wilbur is such a sweet old man. He loves to nap! He had a good night and has been eating and drinking just fine though his teeth are so bad he gets blood in his water. Vet visit coming up Tuesday. He will need at least a dental and neutering. If you’d like to donate to his care, please visit sugarfacesrescue.org and click the donate button. You can designate your gift for Wilbur. Thank you on behalf of the seniors.
