The Jacksonville Humane Society provides care, comfort, and compassion to animals in need while engaging the hearts, hands, and minds of their community to end the killing of abandoned and orphaned shelter animals.

Funded from 2019 to 2023

A Grey Muzzle grant will support the adoption of senior pets in Jacksonville Humane’s Adoption, Education and Pet Help Center. Grant funds will help ensure senior pets are healthy, happy, and ready to head to their new homes. Also, it will help JHS highlight one special senior dog every month to help find their new, loving family. This gift will support dogs like eight-year-old Vonna, who was found in the backyard of an abandoned home with two puppies. After her puppies were adopted, Vonna was spayed (no more puppies for this old girl!), treated for heartworms and adopted by her new best friend, all thanks to Grey Muzzle!
