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.
