Most dogs that land in animal shelters are older. This is sad and often avoidable, but it’s real. The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide. Reality check: It’s often these older dogs, who have done nothing wrong, who are at risk of being euthanized.
Shelters and legit rescues need help, and the Grey Muzzle Organization exists to provide just that lending paw.
Guided by its vision—a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid—the Grey Muzzle Organization makes grants throughout the U.S. expressly for programs designed to improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs. Shelters, rescue groups, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit organizations, whose activities include helping senior dogs, are now invited to apply for these grant funds. Since 2008, Grey Muzzle has provided more than $1,000,000 in grants for senior dog programs to 108 nonprofit organizations in 32 states! Grants typically range from $2,500 to $7,500. Grey Muzzle Organization’s ability to make grants to help senior dogs depends entirely on the generosity and support of the public and other donors.
Here’s where you can apply for grants, or share this article with a friend or colleague who works or volunteers at a facility that has senior dogs in their care and is seeking to improve the life of those dogs. Help to spread the word about Grey Muzzle Organization grants. The more donors who give, the more grants will be available, and the more senior dogs will be helped. And shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries can’t possibly receive help if they don’t know it’s available.
