Love, devotion and optimism shine through the faces of all the old dogs who took part in Grey Muzzle’s Senior Dog Prom. If you don’t already share your life with a senior dog, we hope that seeing so many incredibly sweet, beautiful and loving old dogs may inspire you to open your heart to a dog in need.

If you’re ready to bring a regal senior home, please consider adopting our 2017 Senior Dog Prom’s Cutest Couple, Ladi & Jed from Main Line Animal Rescue in Phoenixville, PA, or one of these adorable members of the Royal Court:  Archer from Dachshund Rescue of North America in Lexington, SC; Dwight from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, NC; Rusty from Bob’s House for Dogs in Eleva, WI; and Rupert from Pug Rescue of Austin, TX. 

Dozens of dogs who took part in our prom are cherished pets. To find out why so many people absolutely adore their senior dogs, read, “Why Adopt a Senior Dog?” by Sheri Franklin & Liz Brooking.
