Gray Face Acres is an all Volunteer run Rescue.  No Board members receive salaries so all donations go directly to the rescue and the needs of the people and dogs we serve!

Our dog Shyla had a little pocket to sit in.  I wonder if she has dreams of being surrounded by food.

We all gathered at Debbe D.'s house on August 4, 2019, to say goodbye and give our best wishes to GFA's founder and our friend Debbie Gretz.  She made it to Idaho and is settling into her new home with her husband, Bob and seven doggies.  We will miss Debbie, she taught us so much about Senior dog care.  She also helped us understand that we should not be afraid of adopting/foster senior dogs who have been left in shelters or dumped by their previous owners because even though it will be hard when the that time comes it fills our heart to help a dog feel loved and care for until the very end.  The dog can cross the rainbow bridge feeling loved.


   Debbie will be expanding GFA to Idaho while we here in Virginia expand GFA into helping not only senior dogs but senior people.  


Our "coming out" will be Haymarket Day.  Come and see us!!!

Rescue Me West Virginia offered us dog food for our A Hand Up program.  My husband and I filled our van in Martinsburg, WV and headed for Debbie D's house.
