Golden Retriever Acres Senior Sanctuary (GRASS)
Funded in 2019
Golden Retriever Acres Senior Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2012 serving primarily as a refuge for senior and special needs Goldens by providing a clean, safe and loving sanctuary in which to live out their golden years. They also facilitate foster and adoption placements for able residents. Their kennel-free facility is situated on a beautiful two acres in Texas. Their staff and board work with dozens of volunteers to provide for the needs of all residents and coordinate with multiple high school groups and Girl/Boy Scout troops to instill the joys of responsible dog ownership.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow Golden Retriever Acres Senior Sanctuary (GRASS) to provide comprehensive dental therapy for senior dogs in cases where it is medically warranted and feasible. This preventative measure can effectively slow or even halt advancement of periodontal disease allowing for a better quality of life for the dogs and potentially a significant decrease in medical maintenance costs over the rest of their lives. With Grey Muzzle's help, GRASS will be more effective in giving seniors more healthful enjoyment of their Golden years!
