Who We Are

White Whiskers Senior Dog Sanctuary

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 venture opening a unique dog shelter in Western New York.  White Whiskers Senior Dog Sanctuary is located in Akron, NY, just 40 minutes Northeast of Buffalo.  We are presently under construction with an opening date of late 2023/early 2024. Our goal is to create a space to ease the stress that senior dogs experience when they lose their homes and families by providing a compassionate option to live out their years in safety, comfort, and peace. While we continue fundraising and look to the future, we remain active in the community by partnering with individuals and shelters to find homes for senior dogs.  Since the start of 2020, we have helped find forever homes for over 200+ dogs throughout Western New York. So please, follow along, donate, or volunteer to help us realize these dreams.

Furever Loved

Celebrate the life of your beloved pet by bringing joy and comfort to dogs in need. Our sanctuary offers a chance for you to give back, creating a legacy that honors your precious memories together.

Help Our Cause

Your time and contributions have enabled us to purchase a property and begin renovations! However, there is still much work to be done and we need your help.
