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.

Keeping Senior Dogs in Homes

Elvis was Anderson Humane Society’s very first “client” to benefit from their Grey Muzzle grant! This adorable 13-year-old Lhasa Apso was picked up as a stray. Anderson Humane was able to identify Elvis' owner, but sadly, the elderly gentleman could not afford any veterinary care for his beloved dog and was physically unable to keep him out of the road.

Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program Grant

Gannon, a small but mighty 12-year old Dachshund, has found himself in and out of Lollypop Farm over the last couple of years due to his sassiness. It seems that in his golden years, he is a bit grumpier and his previous families have had trouble managing and working with his bad manners.

Medical Expense Grant

Love is blind and Penelope would agree. This sweet, 15-year-old Shih Tzu found herself at a shelter in New York because her family could no longer care for her. She needed both of her eyes removed due to untreated issues, and the cost of treatment and time to heal were both too much for the shelter to handle.
