The holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year—a time for celebration with friends and family. For many of us, this means including our furry companions in our festivities as well. If there is a pet in your home, particularly a senior pet, it is extremely important to keep safety in mind with all of the new sights, sounds, visitors, and excitement the holidays bring. The following tips will keep this time of year jolly, happy, and stress-free for you and your furry senior companion.
According to PetFinder.com, the typical pet spends about 12 weeks on their site before finding a home, but senior pets remain there nearly four times as long, with some being euthanized before they can be adopted.
Hospice for pets—the privilege of providing compassionate care for our animal friends as they approach the ends of their lives—is one that may help save senior dogs.
The Grey Muzzle Organization is collecting photos of children (of any age) and their senior dogs. During the month of November we will feature these photos to share the special attachment between children and senior dogs with the public. A picture is worth a thousand words, and we believe that these photos will open many minds to the joys of welcoming a senior dog into families of all shapes and sizes.
Since 2008, The Grey Muzzle Organization has granted $230,000 to help homeless and at-risk senior dogs across the country. Meet Lollie (pictured), and others who have benefitted from the grants, and learn how nonprofit organizations are putting the funds to work to save senior dog lives!
Energy healing is ideal for senior dogs as it is non-invasive, effective, non-toxic and economical. Jenny Kachnic of the Grey Muzzle Advisory Board shares some insights about this complementary healing technique.
In the past 4 years, with your help, we have donated over $32,000 worth of orthopedic beds to more than 50 shelters around the country to help dogs like Booty (below) get off the concrete floors.
