In 2006, Joe and Sher Polvinale turned their home in Gaithersburg, Maryland, into a pet sanctuary. Joe has since passed away, but Sher continues to run House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary, a retirement home for elderly and special needs dogs.
These dogs have a permanent and loving home for the rest of their lives. With the help of volunteers, every one gets individual care and lots of affection. -via Metafilter
