Help Homeless Shelter Dogs
When senior dogs enter shelters, their future is uncertain. The adoption rate for senior dogs (7 years or older) is lower than that of all other ages combined: Just over 50% find new homes. The Grey Muzzle Organization is one of the only national organizations dedicated specifically to advancing lifesaving efforts on behalf of senior dogs. We provide funding and resources to animal shelters and rescues groups nationwide.
Your love for senior dogs makes Grey Muzzle's work possible. Because of your generosity, in 2021 more than 3000 senior dogs got the second chance they all deserve. Please help us serve even more senior dogs in 2022! Get involved by making a gift today, volunteering, or helping to spread the word.
Coming Soon: Senior Dogs Rock! Auction

Legends of Comedy Share Love for Old Dogs
In a new Public Service Announcement (PSA), Carol Burnett, Bob Newhart, Carl Reiner and Lily Tomlin talk about what growing older means for senior people and senior dogs in candid, funny and poignant comments.

“Many older dogs are surrendered to shelters because their owners passed away or can’t afford their care,” Carol Burnett explains in the PSA.
“And for some of them, there are no more options,” adds Bob Newhart, highlighting Grey Muzzle’s vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.” Read more...
The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other non-profit groups nationwide.
We are not a shelter or rescue group. Rather, Grey Muzzle funds programs such as hospice care, senior dog adoption, medical screening, and other special programs to help old dogs at animal welfare organizations across the country.
