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!

Courtesy share from Tri-County Animal Shelter:

Wiggles is a 12 year old Hound that has already been spayed. She is a victim of Hurricane Florence. She weighs about 58 lbs. She is a friendly old girl that needs to find a nice home to retire in. She is current on her rabies shot and is heartworm negative!

Please share, and if you have space for her in your family, please visit TCAS today! Thanks:)
