Millie Maple

You’d never know it to look at her shining coat today, but sweet senior Millie Maple arrived at St. Louis Senior Dog Project (STLSDP) with mange. 


Wiley was a stray who had been severely neglected. A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization, made possible by our wonderful donors, helped Safe Harbor Lab Rescue pay for the medical care needed to prepare him for adoption. And adopted he was! 


"Both vets are recommending surgery... and I don't know what to do. I'm sorry for reaching out and asking for help, but I'm scared, and I know I can't let my furbaby suffer. But I don't know what to do, as I have my own medical bills… I'm used to helping others and their fur babies, so it's a hard one for me to swallow."

As a veterinary technician, Lamiya had dedicated her life to helping pets heal. But when her own pup, Baylee, suffered a major medical issue, Lamiya didn't know where to turn for help.

"Our Grey Muzzle grant made it easy for us to quickly respond when one of our local shelters reached out about a senior Yorkie Terrier brought in as a stray. One of our volunteers hopped in the car and was on the way."
