Beds For Senior Dogs

The Grey Muzzle Organization maintains a fund to provide orthopedic beds and cots to old dogs who are living in shelters.
The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County received a donation of beds from Grey Muzzle. Here is what they had to say:
"We just received the soft beds, and the dogs LOVE them.  Especially the old Rottweiler.  It took him a whole minute to raise himself off his blankets and make a beeline for the new bed.  I could almost hear the sigh he let out."

The bed fund is made possible through your donations. And because you are donating to the fund rather than purchasing the bed yourself, your donation is tax deductible. 

In the past six years, with your help, we have donated over $40,000 worth of orthopedic beds to more than 100 shelters around the country.
Your donation helps to expand this program to more shelters. Concrete floors in shelters are particularly uncomfortable for older dogs. Orthopedic beds can help old dogs get adopted. Old dogs lying on concrete floors or even just blankets on a hard floor may limp when they get up to greet people, which can make them less appealing to a potential adopter. 

Donate a bed

Donate a bed by selecting the Bed Fund option on our Donate Page. Grey Muzzle receives manufacturer discounts on all beds. Whenever possible, we save money by buying in volume or during sales and only buy beds that are durable, comfortable, and therapeutic for seniors.

Want to make your bed donation a gift in someone's honor? Just give us all the information on our Donate Page and we'll send out, either by email or by mail, a certificate to your recipient of choice letting them know.

Donations are secured by PayPal, with the option to donate with a credit card.
Grey Muzzle is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations to the Bed Fund are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Apply For Beds

We welcome your application to receive beds from The Grey Muzzle Organization, if you meet this criteria:
  • You are a registered non-profit or government-run animal shelter and beds will benefit dogs living in a kennel environment
  • You take in senior dogs and support senior dog rescues through your programs
  • You will use the bed(s) for your seniors and are willing to provide us with a picture of a senior dog using the bed and some info about the dog.

We believe that when seniors are comfortable, they show better in a shelter and potential adopters respond more positively to a dog curled up in a bed.

If your organization fits the criteria above, please complete this brief application form:

We would be happy to provide you with one to two beds, providing funds are available.
