The Auburn Valley Humane Society enriches the lives of companion animals and people through animal sheltering, programs, services and community engagement.
A grant from Grey Muzzle supports Auburn Valley Humane Society's Dental Program, which will assist AVHS to increase senior dog intake and provide much needed dental care to senior dogs. AVHS will have the capacity to care for additional dogs from collaborating shelters and rescues, many of which are senior dogs with medical and dental needs who may not receive needed dental care because of the cost, or they are at high risk of euthanasia.
Providing quality dental care for senior dogs enriches their lives and increases their adoptability. This program aims to lessen the length of stay for senior dogs and increase adoption capacity to accommodate even more dogs to provide them with needed medical care.
