Toni ODNT SpokesdogWelcome to all you dog lovers. I’m Toni, official spokesdog for Old Dogs New Tricks. We are a non-profit rescue for older dogs in Carmichael, CA.

Our mission is to rescue older dogs who are unwanted and abandoned and give them forever homes (that’s what I have). My guardian, Susan, rehabilitates the sick ones and helps the healthy ones get a better life. To let you know how very important this project is, I want to tell you a story about the life of Sam.
