Founded in 1888, the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County (HSTPC) is Washington state’s largest open admission animal welfare agency. Each year, HSTPC cares for around 10,000 dogs, cats, and small animals from rural Pierce County to the city of Tacoma. HSTPC strives to ensure they give every animal that comes through their doors a chance at finding happiness. Their spay/neuter assistance program, Pet Food Pantry, and Pet Support program empower thousands of people to keep and care for their pets.
The Grey Muzzle Organization’s generous grant will provide dental care for senior dogs at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County (HSTPC), improving their quality of life and preventing other serious health issues. Funding will help senior dogs like nine-year-old Tilly, who came to HSTPC as a stray suffering from hair loss, fleas, tapeworms, and severe dental disease. With compassionate care from the HSTPC veterinary team, Tilly had surgery to extract nine teeth and was placed in a loving foster home. With Grey Muzzle’s support, more senior dogs like Tilly will receive comprehensive medical treatment and find new forever homes.
