In 2006, Sher Polvinale and her late husband, Joe, created a senior pet sanctuary in their home. Sanctuary residents are dogs and cats who have lost their families and homes through no fault of their own. Because of their advanced age and various medical conditions, they have little chance of being adopted.
Currently, nearly two-dozen dogs are spending their golden years at House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary. Sher and a team of volunteers spare no expense and care for the dogs’ every need—from washing and feeding to medications and vet visits.
