About Loving Companions Animal Rescue, Inc.

Loving Companions Animal Rescue, Incorporated is an organization designed to save from destruction those usually older pets that have become hard to place because of their age or disabilities. These once great pets and friends are no longer wanted by the general population. We strive to give them a warm, comfortable home and try to place them with a new family that will have the ability and desire to care for such an animal. We will strive to maintain comfortable surroundings for those animals that cannot be placed to insure they are able to live out their natural life.

Main Line Animal Rescue

Funded from 2016 - 2017

How we help

A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps MLAR with their medical expenses for senior dogs, both in their rescue and in their Medical Foster program.

MLAR is fortunate that they have an onsite veterinarian and a well-equipped clinic to perform most of what is needed for these special animals in-house, such as dental exams and extractions, biopsies, mass removals and orthopedic meds and blood/lab work. Female dogs that come to them from the puppy mills all need to be spayed and require additional care because of the deterioration of their organs because of countless pregnancies.

About Main Line Animal Rescue

Main Line Animal Rescue specializes in the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals. MLAR works to raise the public’s awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. Animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.

Main Line Animal Rescue is nationally recognized as a leader in the fight against puppy mill abuse. Their 2008 billboard in Chicago led to Oprah Winfrey’s award winning expose on puppy mills and featured their undercover investigation with acclaimed journalist Lisa Ling. Their efforts with Newsweek led to Whole Foods Markets issuing a directive to all their suppliers: they would no longer source any products from farmers also operating puppy mills.

Mastiff Rescue of Florida

Funded from 2014 - 2015

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps with the "Oldies but Goodies" program to provide medical care for adoptable dogs.  Senior dogs can arrive into their rescue as owner surrenders, abandonment, abuse, puppy mill seizures, shelter drops, etc. and all require medical work up and heartworm prevention - many require medical treatments.

All rescued senior dogs live in a safe loving environment with MRF dedicated fosters. One volunteer states all dogs should “die in the arms of love with fried chicken on their breath.”

About Mastiff Rescue of Florida

Mastiff Rescue of Florida, Inc.(MRF) was formed to help provide needy mastiffs with a second chance for a home and family.  MRF strives to prevent cruelty to Mastiffs and to place cruelty cases, stray or abandoned Mastiffs in adoptive homes which will provide a high level of care. We may also assist Mastiff owners who can no longer provide a home for their dog. We are an all volunteer rescue that works to find forever homes and to educate the public about these gentle giants.

Monroe County Friends of Animals

Funded in 2015

How we help

A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps to fund the “Second Chance Pals” program.  This program seeks to find foster or other temporary care for senior dogs until a forever home can be found.  All illnesses and injuries are treated except for the medically untreatable.  The program’s future goals are to provide educational material for the community about the benefits of adopting an adult pet and to provide assistance to existing pet owners to help find solutions to keeping their family pet in their home.  

About Monroe County Friends of Animals

Monroe County Friends of Animals (MCFA) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization located in Monroe County, Tennessee. This group was created in 2004 by concerned citizens who recognized a dire need existing throughout the county for animal welfare. They consulted with the County's governing body and entered into negotiations with the Monroe County government. This led to the formation of a county-run animal shelter, which was approved by a narrow commission vote at the end of 2004. The main thrust of MCFA's mission is to support the Monroe County Animal Shelter both monetarily in animal rescue efforts and with hands-on assistance in the shelter. In addition MCFA provides other community services through its volunteers' network.

Norfolk Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Norfolk SPCA)

Funded in 2018

How we help

Thanks to the support of The Grey Muzzle Organization, the Norfolk SPCA’s Senior Dog Dental Program will provide dental exams and cleaning for senior dogs awaiting adoption. Potential adopters often overlook senior dogs and prefer to adopt young puppies because of perceived high healthcare costs and medical needs. These senior dogs still have a lot of love and companionship to give. The Norfolk SPCA will use Grey Muzzle’s $5,000 in grant funding to provide dental services to 50 senior pets and help increase their likelihood of finding their forever family.

About Norfolk Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Norfolk SPCA)

The SPCA shelters, treats, rehabilitates, and rehomes household companion animals from throughout the Norfolk-Virginia Beach region and gives them the extra time and care needed to find a forever home.
