Welcome to Twilight ~ the retirement home for dogs

La Maison de retraite pour les chiens



The Twilight Puddings with Mum and Dad, Leeanne and Mike, thank you for visiting our website. Established over ten years ago, the Twilight Retirement Home for Dogs has seen more than 300 dogs pass through its gates and has inspired many people to welcome an old or disabled dog into their life. Nestled in the verdant countryside of the French Perigord Vert, this family home is an oasis of love and tranquillity where the old, sick, lame and unwanted come to spend their final years, months or days, with all that a dog needs to make him or her as well and as comfortable as possible. It’s about having the best of life to the very moment of crossing the Rainbow Bridge.
