This Woman Opened A Retirement Home For Senior Dogs Who Have Been Abandoned Or Surrendered

July 2, 2015

House with a Heart, a nonprofit animal shelter located in Gaithersburg, MD, takes in senior dogs to help with end-of-life care.

Sher Polvinale started the shelter in 2006 after retiring from an over 30 year career with animal rescue.

House with a Heart has an army of 50 volunteers helping Sher run the large, two-acre property filled with various enclosures for the animals. Doggie doors at all major entrances allow the animals freedom that many family pets do not have.

Unlike other shelters, Sher does not attempt to adopt out the dogs she has rescued. She allows them to live out the rest of their lives in her care.
