Located in South Carolina, Carolina Poodle Rescue (CPR) has foster homes across the Carolinas, Georgia, Virginia, and Florida. This year, CPR celebrated 21 years of livesaving and helping more than 8,000 dogs find their forever families. Over the past 5 years, the number of senior dogs CPR serves has grown dramatically and now accounts for more than 45% of the total number of dogs they help annually. CPR helps local shelters with hoarding and abuse/neglect cases, partners with breeders seeking humane retirement of their dogs, and acts as a safety net when life circumstances force owners to surrender beloved pets. Their mantra is simple, “One by one, until there are none.”
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will enable Carolina Poodle Rescue (CPR) to continue to expand their "Save Our Seniors" program, which provides medical and rehabilitative care to senior dogs to get them ready for adoption. This year’s focus is all about being able say “Yes!” to senior dogs like Bailey, who need that extra bit of help to address their special needs. Ensuring senior dogs are healthy before going up for adoption greatly increases their chances of finding their forever home.
