Tours of GrandPaw's Gardens and our Old Friends living there are now available, but must be reserved in advance. Because we are a sanctuary, and visitors are quite stressful to our Old Friends, touring opportunities are limited. Each tour will start with a short presentation on safety and information about Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary, will tour the dog areas and will allow for some time to sit with the dogs. Each tour will last about 30 minutes with a question and answer period afterwards.
Some of the Old Friends that you are familiar with, including Leo, Mildred and Captain Ron, do not live at GrandPaw's Gardens so you will not see them on the tour.
Reservations are $10 per person, are non-refundable and are required so that we can be sure to have staff or volunteers on hand to accompany you. The maximum size per tour is six people.
Visitors must wear closed toe shoes. We also recommend long pants.
We are sorry, however, no one under 13 years old will be allowed on the tour.
Our gift shop and information center is open from 10-5 Monday-Friday and 10-4 on Saturday.
