Meet some of the dogs helped by The Grey Muzzle Organization. We provide grants and other funding to pay expenses, such as medical care, so the wonderful organizations that give these dogs a second chance can focus on their care.

To learn more about these organizations, see our Who We Help page. The dogs on this page are just a sample of the elder dogs that have benefited from our grants to these organizations.

An old dog. 
A beloved dog. 
Ranger lived his entire life with a devoted elderly couple in a rented home, but then the owner of the house died and his family wanted the house back. Faced with losing their home, another tragedy struck: the husband passed away from cancer leaving his wife, Gloria, to manage as best she could.
