Many older dogs are abandoned when they need us most. Those that end up in shelters often require dental work or other medical care, which may be too expensive for shelters to provide. Their sad condition discourages adopters. Others are simply too ill or fragile to ever be placed for adoption. Many spend their final days without ever getting treatment for their pain or knowing again the comfort of a home.
The Grey Muzzle Organization's mission is to create a world in which no old dog dies alone and afraid. We improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to nonprofit animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries and other nonprofit groups nationwide.
Grey Muzzle funds are granted for a variety of programs designed to improve the health of homeless senior dogs, increase their chances of being adopted, keep them out of shelters and in their own homes, and enable them to live out their final days with comfort and dignity.
Our grants for medical care are used to diagnose medical conditions in senior dogs and provide necessary treatment, including surgery and medication. These grants help adoptable senior dogs, dogs in hospice or permanent foster care, and dogs whose caregivers could otherwise not afford veterinary services.
We have a rigorous application process for our grantees.
Please join us in our mission to provide funding and resources to animal shelters and rescue groups that are committed to providing medical care for senior dogs in need.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible.
