Two by Two serves abandoned, abused, stray, and distressed animals without regard to age, breed, color, or medical condition, and aims to keep pets in their homes by offering relief to people in crisis. One of the nonprofit’s main goals is to improve lifesaving throughout Alabama, a state with one of the highest euthanasia rates in the country. Two by Two provides animals in need with necessary medical care, a loving foster home, and a loving forever home when possible. They are proud to report a lifesaving rate of 96% and to have increased the number of dogs they serve from 200 in 2016 to over 1,200 in 2021, 217 of which were senior dogs.
Two by Two is committed to saving as many senior dogs as possible in Birmingham, AL. Mr. Grumplestein’s Legacy is named after a senior Chihuahua whose deformed leg, advanced age, and lack of teeth put him at risk in the local shelter. The program in his honor will give senior dogs the second chance they deserve by providing comprehensive medical care, including vaccinations, blood work, and any needed medication. The Grey Muzzle grant will enable Two by Two to save more than 220 older dogs during the grant period.
