City of Elderly Love

The City of Elderly Love is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue dedicated to saving and enriching the lives of adoptable senior pets in the Philadelphia area. Utilizing volunteer foster homes, City of Elderly Love aims to rescue these animals from potential euthanasia at area animal shelters as well as prevent older animals from entering the shelter-system in the first place, when possible.

Through creative marketing and community events, City of Elderly Love works to place its adoptable pets into loving adoptive homes.

More on Philadelphia

Philadelphia - the City of Brotherly Love, or perhaps it should be renamed the "City of Doggy Love"? Philadelphians are a confident bunch with hometown pride that rings louder than the Liberty Bell. And when it comes to sentiment, canines certainly aren't exempt. Home to distinctively delicious local cuisine (cheese steak or pretzels, anyone?) as well as the largest landscaped urban park in the world, the possibilities for you and your dog are endless.

Philadelphians have a lot of love to give, especially when it comes to their pets. At Rover.com, we love your pets just as much as you do and are proud to list dog boarding, dog sitters, and dog walking services that take this love for dogs personally. By donating to local charities through Rover's "Sit a Dog, Save a Life" program, Philly dog lovers actively contribute to organizations such as PAWS Philadelphia. Because at Rover.com believe every dog deserves a loving home.
