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.

Grey faced Boxer Gordon

Gordon

April 28, 2019

Hospice Care

Though his time with NorCal Boxer Rescue was short, they will never forget Gordon. This sweet, gentle, senior boxer was abandoned by his family in his own backyard. He remained there alone for over two weeks before animal control was contacted and he was picked up. Because they had an open foster home willing to care for this beautiful senior boy, they were able to take Gordon in right away.
