As the only national organization focused specifically on senior dogs, Grey Muzzle offers a unique opportunity to reach a target audience that includes veterinarians, animal welfare organizations, and pet parents of older dogs. We strive to make our partnerships mutually beneficial. Here are some of our current partners:
Maddie's Fund® is a family foundation created in 1994 by Workday® co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $237.6 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter management leadership, shelter medicine education and foster care across the U.S. The Duffields named Maddie's Fund after their Miniature Schnauzer Maddie, who always made them laugh and gave them much joy. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl for ten years and continues to inspire them today. Maddie's Fund is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog, investing its resources to create a no-kill nation where every dog and cat is guaranteed a healthy home or habitat. #ThanksToMaddie.
dogIDs was founded in 2005 by Clint and Lori Howitz in the basement of their home with the sole purpose of improving the lives of their precious pooches. While they have now upgraded and relocated to an office and their team is a bit bigger, their primary goal is still the same: doing what is best for our four legged best friends. The inspiration for their hard work comes from family dogs like their spokesdog, River, who is also their product tester as well as greeter and morale booster.

Winemaker and owner Brenda Lynch didn't grow up dreaming to be a winemaker. She discovered her passion for winemaking when she, husband Chris and their 3 dogs moved to Sonoma County in 1994. Brenda started to work in cellars in the Russian River Valley and she credits these early years as cellar worker into cellar master with providing the foundation of her winemaking philosophy - harvest beautiful fruit, treat it gently in the winery and keep the winemaking as natural as possible. In 1995, Brenda decided to make her first professional wine, a Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, and Mutt Lynch Winery was born. Since her first vintage, Brenda has wanted to make exceptional wine and have fun sharing her wines with friends old and new.
