Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, NMDOG was established in 2010 and has saved thousands of dogs’ lives over its ten-year history. NMDOG reaches out across the state of New Mexico to the dogs who need help the most: the chained, the abandoned, the victims of the most horrific cases of cruelty, and lastly, the forgotten ones. NMDOG focuses their efforts on rescue, community outreach, education, rehabilitation, adoption and networking. When called upon, NMDOG works closely with Law Enforcement Agencies, shelters throughout New Mexico and rescues in surrounding states. They have also been integral in passing anti-tethering legislation. In recent years, NMDOG has developed a Home Sanctuary program for senior dogs who have lifetime and costly behavioral and/or medical needs, providing the loving home they deserve for the rest of their days.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow NMDOG to provide initial and ongoing medical care to the senior dogs who are Forever Fosters in the NMDOG Home Sanctuary Program. This program allows previously chained senior dogs like Sterling, who have special medical or behavioral needs, to live out their lives with a forever family. Funding will cover the costs of emergency services, diagnostics, medical care, supplements, and prescription medications for the senior dogs placed with Home Sanctuary providers.
