Old or ill dogs are being offered a new home in Maryland, USA.

"House with a Heart" helps dogs who are unwell or who have special needs.

It's run by Sher Polinvale who opened up her house to unwanted dogs in 2006.

She now has 31 animals in her house.

Harriette Sackler who helps run the sanctuary said:

"They give us so much love and devotion. They are, every pup here, is different."

"It's just the most astounding experience to be here with them."

See the dogs having fun at the sanctuary.
