The Connecticut Humane Society (CHS) is the leading resource in the state for companion animal welfare, enriching the lives of families and communities through adoption services, medical care, education, and prevention of cruelty.
Grey Muzzle’s grant will help provide veterinary care to senior dogs in animal control, as well as senior pets in the care of private animal shelters and rescues as resources allow.
As New England pet demographics evolve, CHS is seeing less of a prevalence of shelter euthanasia and overcrowding and a dramatic rise of pets in need of extra care such as dentistry, injury treatment, or other illnesses. Senior pets in particular tend to fall into this category of needing extra help. Once brought to full health, these pets make excellent companions.
