Our Mission

We are a 501(c)(3) organization located in North Yarmouth, Maine, with a mission to provide a loving home to homeless senior dogs, pledging to provide these dogs with nutritious food, quality veterinary care, and anything else that these dogs could want or need to comfort them during the final days or years of their lives. Finally Home also pledges to help network for senior dogs who are homeless, as well as financially help to fund the care of senior animals so they can remain with their owners, in their home.

About Us

Founded in 2019 by Laurie Dorr, Finally Home Senior Dog Rescue and Retirement home takes in their resident dogs from shelters where they have been for a long period of time, belong to someone who has a medical issue who can no longer care for the dog, or come from senior or elderly citizens who unfortunately cannot bring them when moving to an assisted living or other such facilities.

Being available to help these dogs provides them with the love and care they so desperately need and deserve, and also gives their owners peace of mind, knowing where they are, and that they are being cared for the way they would care for their beloved pet themselves.

Finally Home works with other local nonprofit animal rescue organizations, in order to allow more senior dogs to be rescued, to find appropriate homes, and also strives to educate the public regarding the many joys and benefits of caring for our senior pets.
