Grey Face Rescue & Retirement is expanding to provide a safe haven for senior animals whose owners are unable to care for them, who are abandoned or abused or who face euthanasia.


Shortly after launching Grey Face Rescue, we learned quickly about the huge need for a senior-only dog rescue in Minnesota. With multiple inquiries about dogs daily, we continue to face struggles that, in return, risk the lives of homeless seniors and urgent cases.

With your help, we hope to expand our resources in the community so that we can say YES! to more urgent senior dogs in need.

We no longer want to deny a life due to the lack of a foster home. Foster homes are essential to our mission, but the most fitting foster home doesn’t always appear when needed. In the future, we hope to expand our facility to add short-term boarding options so we can provide safety to more seniors awaiting a temporary safe haven. 

We are also planning to introduce multiple programs that will decrease the number of homeless senior dogs in Minnesota by providing low-cost veterinary care and training services. Many times, families surrender senior dogs to shelters because they are unable to provide veterinary care or because a dog might display specific behaviors that become unappealing or unmanageable. 

You can make a difference for these dogs today. Your support will change a life and help even more seniors throughout Minnesota get the love and care they so desperately deserve and need.


Our New Home

Our facility has a 2,000-square-foot heated warehouse with 1,000+ square feet of office space available. It has a partially fenced-in outdoor space and is conveniently located in the St. Cloud area. The facility is the first step toward providing a range of services that will help to decrease the number of homeless animals in Minnesota.
