Advanced Canine Education

Funded in 2016

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps ACE to sustain and hopefully expand its Shelter Dog Swim program, an innovative, unique program that gives senior dogs, medical, specialized physical therapy, and fun swims while making organizations more effective. 

The Shelter Dog Swim program reduces expensive medical treatments/surgery (and is better for dogs), and it provides pre/post medical rehabilitation, at a greatly reduced cost.  Senior dogs are great candidates for dog swimming.   Warm water, indoors, with special ramps, and float coats are life saving for senior dogs, which cannot exercise or socialize like other dogs. 

About Advanced Canine Education

Advanced Canine Education supports dogs by giving services to dogs, and to those who serve them.  They help dog related charitable organizations, rescue groups, first responders, service dogs, therapy dogs, police k9 dogs, and provide training for the staff members of these groups.  They focus on:

1.    American Red Cross Canine First Aid & CPR training and certification, so the professionals and volunteers working for dog organizations can handle, emergency situations until appropriate veterinary assistance is available. 
2.    Dog swimming in a heated, indoor, specially equipped, saline pool for injured, recuperating, unadoptable, geriatric dogs referred by dog organizations and veterinarians.  
3.    Specialized training and educational opportunities for students, dog owners, and the public.

Arizona Beagle Rescue

Funded in 2016

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps Arizona Beagle Rescue provide more comprehensive medical care for more senior dogs.   When senior dogs have clean teeth and a full medical, potential adopters are informed with a thorough report on each dog’s health and condition.  

For some dogs with chronic but treatable ailments, the program provides adoptive families with financial support for medications/dog food as needed.  For dogs that are deemed unfit for adoption (whether it be medical issues or behavioral issues), their Forever Foster program allows senior beagles to live out their natural lives in a foster home, surrounded by the family that they are a part of.

Bob’s House for Dogs

Funded from 2015-2016

How we help

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help with their “The Chew on This” program. Senior dogs often arrive at shelters and rescues with severe dental issues.  As Bob’s House for Dogs receives these seniors to foster, the dental issues are evaluated and addressed which, in turn, makes the seniors more attractive to prospective adopters as possible costly medical procedures are eliminated.

The main goal at Bob’s House for Dogs is to make senior dogs more adoptable.  They provide foster care to senior and special-needs dogs in a kennel-free, home-like environment.  The dogs in their care receive loving attention, high-quality food and meticulous health care.  They provide end-of-life care to dogs with terminal illness or advanced age, making them comfortable as they pass on.  They give back to the community through a number of programs, reaching out to the elderly and children.
