About Mr. Jojo's Rescue

Our Mission

Our mission is to rescue senior dogs from shelters whose chances of being adopted are highly unlikely due to their advanced age, medical conditions or disabilities. Each of our residents will live out the remainder of their life receiving exceptional veterinary care, specialized diets, daily exercise, plus lots of love, fun and belly rubs in a comfortable home environment. This is our impassioned commitment to them until it is time to say goodbye and cross over the rainbow bridge.

What We Believe

Senior dogs rock

Having fun never gets old

Quality is better than quantity

Love is better than hate

Exercise is good for people and dogs

Old dogs can learn new tricks

Pee pee pads are the greatest invention…ever!

What We Do

We are a small group (me, myself, and I with an occasional helping hand) doing a lot of work, and loving every minute of it! If we are lucky, our day starts around 5:00 AM unless we hear the dreaded “I’m going to throw up on your bed” sound or one of our babies with dementia starts barking at 3:00 AM. We get everyone up and out, followed by medication, breakfast, clean-up, playtime, walks, pick up poop, clean any messes from overnight, pick up more poop, and somewhere in there we desperately try to gulp down a cup of coffee or two.

Mogwai - 15 Years Old

Mogwai (if you have seen the 1984 movie Gremlins, you may know why we gave her this name) isn't supposed to be here. She was confiscated from a backyard after years of neglect and abuse. She ended up at a county shelter where she was on schedule to be euthanized due to her age and severe

Mr. Coffee Bean - 12 1/2 Years Old

Mr. Coffee Bean was picked up as a stray from animal care and control. Although he was already fixed and microchipped (the phone number was not in service) nobody came to claim him. He started out with three strikes… He was a senior at 12 years old, he was deaf, and he had horrible

Nana Banana was a hot mess when she first arrived at Mr. Jojo’s! Animal care and control contacted us to say they had a little dog who was owner surrender, 15 years old, bad skin, arthritis, blind… You know, typical senior dog issues. Honestly, the first thing we did was get her to the

Asa (Poopsie) - 16 Years Old

Poopsie has the distinction of being our first blind resident. She is another girl we took in before Mr. Jojo’s was an official nonprofit. She is around the ripe old age of 15, but has the heart of a puppy. She found her way around almost instantly… Knowing exactly what to run into before she

Butter Bean - 14 Years Old

Mr. Butter Bean was the first guy we pulled from animal care and control. He was around 13 at the time, and was a sweet little blind boy. As with many seniors who have been neglected, he had severe dental issues, and a few physical issues.  Nothing we can’t handle here at Jojo’s. Even though

Gigi, or as we like to call her, Gigi Parcheesi, is pretty young for Mr. Jojo's Rescue at only 10 years old. Let us explain... She is part of our bigger picture. Our goal is to move into the therapy dog area so we can help those in Hospice or the hospital. We needed a dog that would be a good

 “I was 18 years old when I came to Mr. Jojo’s. Since I came here they took care of my nasty teeth! In other words, they pulled all of them but one. Trust me, it was worth the risk because I was in so much pain. I am almost 19 years old now, and going strong. I still love to go on walks, and I will try to escape out the door to run around the neighborhood as much as possible. My only complaint is that I go to a lot of Dr. appointments! The cardiologist, the eye doctor, the regular doctor… I always going to some appointment. Walks, treats, no more mouth pain, lots of love…..what else can an old man ask for! ” Chili Bean 18 Years Old

"I was around 13 years old when the nice lady from Mr. Jojo’s came to animal care and control to pick me up. She told me that even though her sanctuary was not “official” yet, because the paperwork was still at the IRS, she still needed to save me. I was so happy to hear that. Even though I could not see her (I’m totally blind!) she smelled really good! I love all the yummy food and treats we get…I love the food so much I ask for it ALL of the time. Not sure why I can’t eat 24/7, but I can deal with that as long as I know I am safe and sound at Mr. Jojo’s." Butter Bean 14 Years Old

My new mom at Mr. Jojo’s calls me Nana Banana and sings to me all of the time. I love when she sings my name because I am blind, and since I can’t see her I love to hear her. Well, let me re-phrase that…my new mommy can’t sing at all! Actually she is terrible, but I still love to hear her voice sing my name. I’m 15 years old and my other family could not keep me so Mr. Jojo’s stepped in. I’m having so much fun here! I love hanging out and getting belly rubs. I also get to go to laser therapy for my arthritis. I feel so much better with new medication, food, and visiting my nice doctor. Nana Banana 15 1/2 Years Old
