The award-winning Grouchy Puppy® dog blog was founded over five years ago by Sharon Castellanos. Sharon writes, "Grouchy Puppy is about showing how the positive influence of the human-animal bond is demonstrated by dogs and those who love them. It's purpose is to elevate the conversation about dog adoption and senior dogs, and to influence, and change tired, antiquated beliefs." In this piece, Sharon shares her powerful and touching experience volunteering for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, one of our Grey Muzzle grantees.
Project Unconditional is photographer Jane Sobel Klonsky's tribute to the love we share with our older dogs. The poignant joy of her photos reminds us that the work Grey Muzzle grantees do on behalf of abandoned dogs results in dogs that find care, a home, and someone who loves them unconditionally.
Nancy LeVine's photo series Senior Dogs Across America documents senior dogs in all their variety and beauty. Earlier this year, she visited and photographed dogs at Animal Haven in New York City. We asked Animal Haven to tell us about their senior dog program and the dogs Nancy met and photographed.
