Bob’s House for Dogs

Funded from 2015-2016

How we help

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help with their “The Chew on This” program. Senior dogs often arrive at shelters and rescues with severe dental issues.  As Bob’s House for Dogs receives these seniors to foster, the dental issues are evaluated and addressed which, in turn, makes the seniors more attractive to prospective adopters as possible costly medical procedures are eliminated. 

About Bob’s House for Dogs

Bob’s House for Dogs:  From kennel to couch, where love doesn’t have an age limit.
The main goal at Bob’s House for Dogs is to make senior dogs more adoptable.  They provide foster care to senior and special-needs dogs in a kennel-free, home-like environment.  The dogs in their care receive loving attention, high-quality food and meticulous health care.  They provide end-of-life care to dogs with terminal illness or advanced age, making them comfortable as they pass on.  They give back to the community through a number of programs, reaching out to the elderly and children.

Funded in 2016

How we help

Funding from Grey Muzzle provides dog training sessions, pet food assistance, and veterinary care financial assistance.  The goal is to encourage pet owners not to relinquish their pet to the local animal shelter.

Boykin Spaniel Rescue

Funded in 2017

How we help

Funding from Grey Muzzle will help to support Boykin Spaniel Rescue's new program, "Behavior Therapy & Rehabilitation for Boykin Spaniel Sassy Seniors". BSR is experiencing more dogs with socialization and emotional problems, manifesting in behavioral issues that need to be addressed. With only a limited number of "experienced" fosters capable to take in a permanent charge, this program will specifically work to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these at-risk, purebred, Boykin Spaniels.

The Sassy Seniors program will provide educational support and advocacy for those who support senior dogs.These funds make sure that every Boykin Spaniel that needs medical or emotional assistance receives that help and then is placed in a forever home.

About Boykin Spaniel Rescue

Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. was founded in 2000. Since that time, the Organization has grown to over 300 volunteers in the US. They have one, part-time, administrator; all other aspects of BSR is done through our network of volunteers. Some foster, some transport, and some lend their talents-- either with the dogs or in various other ways.

Their mission is to raise the funds necessary to make sure that every Boykin Spaniel that needs medical or emotional assistance get that help, and then is placed in a forever home. Sometimes, that home is a Permanent Foster Care home, where that dog will remain for the rest of his/her life, with the support of BSR.

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

Funded in 2016, 2021 and 2022

How we help

Brother Wolf cares for senior dogs by collaborating with overburdened, municipal shelters that lack the resources to provide care to senior dogs. Through Brother Wolf’s relationships with over 20 municipal shelters, they’re able to identify senior dogs who need dental and medical care and who, without the help of Brother Wolf, would not have access to this specialized care. Thanks in part to funding from Grey Muzzle, Brother Wolf plans to take in 120 senior dogs over the next 12 months, provide them with dental and medical care, and place them in loving, adoptive homes. This lifesaving work helps dogs like Clyde who came to Brother Wolf with severe ear infections, flea and food allergies that caused painful skin sores, and untreated arthritis. With months of medical treatment and daily care from his loving foster mom, Clyde’s mobility, hearing, and skin conditions dramatically improved. He now enjoys playing with other dogs and carrying around his favorite toys. Best if all, he will soon be adopted into a loving home.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue betters the lives of companion animals and the people who love them. Through adoption and pet retention programs, a low-cost mobile spay and neuter clinic, lifesaving shelter transfer partnerships, and an extensive volunteer and foster networks, Brother Wolf impacts the lives of thousands of animals each year in western North Carolina. By working across county lines in one of the most impoverished areas of the country, Brother Wolf serves as a critical safety net for animals in the shelter system as well as animals whose families can no longer care for them. Brother Wolf envisions a community where all companion animals are valued, cared for and thriving, and where lives are enriched by the special bond between people and animals.

Brown County Humane Society

Funded in 2016

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps to supplement medical costs for their “Seniors for Seniors” adoption program.  Even though the cost of Seniors for Seniors adoption is a third of the regular fee, the potential owners may not have the financial ability to absorb additional costs of vet care. By helping with those costs, adoptions will increase. 

About Brown County Humane Society

The mission of the BCHS is to promote the welfare, compassionate care and protection of animals, taking all domestic animals brought to us, finding suitable homes for adoptable animals, providing information, raising public awareness of animal issues, and promoting responsible pet ownership.

• C.A.R.L. provides medical assistance as needed, foster homes where possible, and indoor pens at C.A.R.L.’s Pet Care Center when foster homes are not available. 
• The dogs are cared for and adopted out using existing volunteer programs or entered into their sanctuary foster program for terminal dogs to be fostered indefinitely, with no expectation that they are ever adopted out.
