Text Box: Izzy's Place was founded in 2008 by Paul and Shereen Raucci.  They started the rescue because of their Senior Lab mix Izzy who they fell in love with. They started a sanctuary in foothills of Loveland for the hospice pups. Sadly Paul passed away in 2012 and after that Shereen decided to move back to New York to be with her Family. Nikki and Jodie kept the rescue running and got their PACFA license last year.  We are an all breed rescue. The only 2 requirements are the dogs be over 7 or specials needs. 
We are a foster home based rescue that relies solely on donations from the public.  Last year alone we were able to save 20 seniors in need and find them loving forever homes. As of this month we have adopted out nearly 60 dogs in our 10 years of existence.
After our pups are fully vetted by our awesome vet partners they go to their foster homes where they learn how to react in a "normal" environment. Our foster homes get to snuggle and love our seniors until they find their furever homes. Sometimes it only takes a few days, other times a few months.  

Our fosters are the most valuable part of our rescue. Without them we wouldn't be able to save more seniors. They open their hearts and homes to pups in need just to do it all over again once their foster pups are adopted. 
While it may seem hard to foster because you'll get "too attached", the truth is, you're saving 2 lives-the life of the pup you're fostering and the life of the dog that got to take the space at the shelter when we took a senior in need in. 

In short, it takes a village to save a dog and Izzy's Place is an amazing Village that has saved many pups in need.
