SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

When it comes time to adopt a pet, it seems like many people go for the puppies and kittens. But there is a whole population out there of senior animals who deserve our love as well.

That's what Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary is all about. The Scottsdale shelter rescues only senior pets, ages seven and older. The mission is to help the sweet seniors find their forever homes, since these dogs are often overlooked.

Forever Loved is holding a special "Breakfast for Dinner" fundraiser Wednesday, March 25 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Scramble in Scottsdale. Scramble is not typically open at night. So for this event, if people come by to have “breakfast for dinner,” the restaurant will donate part of the proceeds of meals sold to the shelter.

“My hope is to fill a void for the senior animals who have been discarded or lost their humans, the ones more difficult to place, the ones that aren't as adoptable and the simply forgotten souls,” says Forever Loved founder Luisa Chocron. “I feel they deserve to live out their last few years, months, weeks, and yes, sometimes even days with dignity knowing they are loved."

Since her childhood, Chocron had a soft spot in my heart for animals. Growing up, she took every opportunity to spend time with the animals that came to her home. Now, she has turned her passion into a refuge for older animals who need a home.

“My home is a busy one that I share with my husband, daughter, and our six furry family members,” says Chocron. “Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary is my offering.”

If you'd like to help out, stop by Scramble Wednesday evening and have some breakfast for dinner. A portion of the proceeds of the food sales from Scramble will go to Forever Loved Pets.

There will also be raffle baskets, filled with dog-themed items, sports tickets, restaurants and more! Donations are accepted by mail or through the website.
