Senior Program Dog Locations

As of Monday, July 2nd, the red dots indicate where our beautiful 9 seniors in our Senior Program are residing.  With your help we will continue to add more to this program.


We are so fortunate to have people that believe in this sanctuary program for our beloved older chows that would have perished if not for this program.

If you would like to be loved on by a gray muzzle please complete the foster application at

Support Our Seniors


 We Now Have A Senior Fund!

Over Three  years have gone by since our dear friend, mentor and fellow Chow Chow  advocate Dianne Watson was tapped by God and left us.  As most of you  know, HCCC was formed in honor of Dianne for her many years of service  and her passion for helping the breed she loved so much.

At the 3 year mark of Dianne's passing, we rescued and adopted 3 senior chows in a span of 3 weeks. Meanwhile, a canvas bag honoring Dianne’s passion for rescue was lovingly being crafted by one of our volunteers as a surprise.  When we saw the finished bag we were in awe and humbled. At the same time we wondered about providing this bag to others for a dual  purpose; provide a beautiful creation for others to enjoy and proudly  display their chow love and secondly, to dedicate the proceeds from the  purchase of the bag to assist those in adopting older chows.

So  we asked ourselves, "Can we do this? Can we encourage chow lovers to  adopt a senior shelter chow with no adoption fee if we provide funds to  assist with senior care such as providing initial vetting and  medication?" And we decided, heck YES! Dianne would love this idea and  we have nothing to lose - but our senior shelter chows sure do.  Therefore, the Senior Chow Fund was born and the proceeds from each canvas bag fund the account.

In 2018, we launched a new logo & created a new logo tote/beach bag to continue to support our senior chows in need.  Each bag has our new logo embroidered.  The bag is available with either a black border or red / navy border.  Bag is 19" wide by 14" high with a 10" handle drop.

Please help us honor Dianne and directly help Senior Chows by purchasing your bag.
