Watauga Humane Society

Funded from 2017 - 2018

How we help

Grey Muzzle funding will support Watauga Humane Society's Adoption Booster efforts by ensuring that they can provide necessary medical care and subsidize adoption fees for senior dogs rather than having to choose one or the other. Additionally, they will be testing a senior focused “play-date” event through their Dogs Playing for Life program. They will bring senior dogs in foster care to the adoption center so potential adopters can meet them. 

About Watauga Humane Society

Watauga Humane Society (WHS) is an open admission adoption center in rural western North Carolina. They serve about 2000 animals a year and because of their successful Adoption Boosters program more than 95% of them have a happy ending. About 100 senior dogs come to WHS annually and they provide specialized wellness exams, dental care, appropriate diets, and training to increase their adoption potential.

Watermelon Mountain Ranch Inc.

Funded in 2018

How we help

Grant funds from Grey Muzzle will allow Watermelon Mountain Ranch Animal Center (WMRAC) to develop a senior to senior adoption program. This program will expand the number of senior animal transfers that they are able to do and also connect the senior citizens in their community with senior animals that deserve a home in their golden years.  

About Watermelon Mountain Ranch Inc.

Watermelon Mountain Ranch Animal Center (WMRAC) was founded in 2002 with the mindset that "All Who Enter Will Find Love." This motto not only applies to the animals that come through their gates but also to the humans that enter looking to find a companion. WMRAC works diligently to foster the animal-human bond, and to that end, Molly's Mercy Missions were established in 2016 to save some of the most vulnerable lives in at risk municipal shelters across the Southwest. These missions specifically pull and transfer animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Many of the animals saved are seniors that have lost their homes due to no fault of their own.

West Valley Humane Society

Funded in 2018

How we help

The senior dogs that come into the West Valley Humane Society have been neglected and most have not had regular veterinary care. The Grey Muzzle grant will provide funding to do blood work on our senior dogs and also support dental procedures, as needed. The blood work will allow us to identify underlying conditions and provide medication and treatment. We will also be able to provide this information to prospective adopters so that they are prepared to meet their new family member’s health needs.

About West Valley Humane Society

West Valley Humane Society's mission is to provide professional and compassionate animal services through shelter, adoption, educational programs, population control and health care services while remaining fiscally responsible. We are the only nonprofit, open admission animal shelter in Canyon County, serving a population of 211,698. In 2017 we saw 7,779 animals come through our doors from our own community, as well as out of state transfers into our facility. We welcomed 348 senior dogs into our care, many of whom required dental work before being adopted to loving families.
