Meet some of the senior dogs helped by The Grey Muzzle Organization. We provide grants to support lifesaving, innovative senior dog programs across the country. These are just a few of the senior dogs who got their second chance thanks to the work of our grantees and the generosity of our supporters.

To learn more about the organizations we fund, see our Grants Recipients page. The dogs featured here have found their forever homes, but you can find adoptable senior dogs on our Senior Spotlight page.

Medical Expense Grant

Ten-year-old Roxy was surrendered to the Sacramento SPCA simply for being “too old.” Life in the shelter was too stressful for her, so she was placed in a foster home where her doting foster mom noticed she had a cough. Chest x-rays revealed a terminal heart condition. With the help of a Grey Muzzle grant, Roxy’s condition is being managed and her quality of life maintained.

Medical Expense Grant

Fifteen-year-old Bella means everything to her dad. When she began exhibiting signs of pain and stopped eating, Dad knew she needed medical attention immediately. As a retired person, he worried about how he would cover the cost of her care. Thankfully, her vet referred them to the FACE Foundation.

Medical Expense Grant

Super senior, Shorty, an 18-year-old miniature schnauzer, was surrendered to Sacramento SPCA because his previous owner said he was “too old and sickly." Shorty was matched with a foster and, feeling better, his true personality came out! This “too old” super senior still had plenty of spunk and love to give.

Dental Expense Grant

Petri, a 9-year-old Pekingese/ Terrier mix, desperately needed a dental cleaning. On top of that, he had several teeth that needed to be removed, as well as a small mass in his mouth.
Thanks to a dental grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization, HPHS was able to contribute to the rest of the bill, and Petri was able to get the surgery needed right away, as recommended by his vet.

Dental Expense Grant

No one knew how Dolly's story began. When a Good Samaritan brought her to animal control, she was dirty, matted, covered in sores, and had a mouth full of loose and rotting teeth. Uncomfortable doesn't even begin to describe the way this senior pup felt.

How we helped

Dental Expense Grant

7-year-old Booker arrived as a stray at an Ohio shelter and his people, sadly, never came looking for him. The tough days wandering the streets alone had taken a toll on him. Radiographs disclosed that both bones in one leg were broken and healed misaligned, causing his wrist to roll outward.

How we helped

Dental Expense Grant

At 14-years-old, Corine was having a run of hard luck as a stray. That is until she wound up at Foothills Animal Shelter in Colorado. Corine had some evidence of being neglected. Her coat was so matted it was impossible to visualize any of her feet, and the mats were causing her discomfort.  In addition to the matting, several of her teeth were missing, and all the remaining teeth were severely diseased.

Keeping Senior Pets in Homes Grant

Daisy, a 14-year-old chihuahua mix, was found as a stray, rescued, and shared on Facebook.  Julie saw the post and agreed to take Daisy to help find her family. She contacted JHS and utilized the Home Stray Hold program. This innovative program allows “finders” to keep stray dogs in their homes and out of shelters while searching for their owners. For senior dogs like Daisy, the program can be a lifesaver.

Betsy and Britta

August 9, 2021

How we helped

Dental Expense Grant

After their person passed away, Betsy and her “sister” Britta, a bonded pair, were taken to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  A shelter can be stressful for senior dogs who have spent their lives in a quiet home. Fortunately, Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) was able to take in both dogs and give them the veterinary care they needed to be ready for a forever home.
