Duncan Nevada SPCA

Nevada SPCA

Funded in 2022

A Grey Muzzle grant will help Nevada SPCA launch a new program to provide free veterinary services to owners of senior dogs that cannot afford veterinary care, including dental cleanings and extractions, diagnostic blood work, surgeries, medications, and vaccinations. This will be a critical first step in Nevada SPCA’s vision of providing services to southern Nevada’s owned pets.

Founded in 1982, Nevada SPCA is southern Nevada’s original lifesaving animal shelter. Nevada SPCA takes in over 2,500 dogs, cats, and small pets annually, giving them medical care and then finding them loving new homes. Sixty-five percent of Nevada SPCA’s intake is from owner-surrendered animals, with the remainder from transfers from other shelters and rescue groups. Nevada SPCA is a safety net for the community’s most vulnerable pets.

Hearts Alive Village

Funded in 2021 and 2022

Hearts Alive Village strives to provide a second chance to the old, the sick, and the broken. Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help the rescue provide medical care to senior dogs hoping to live out their golden years in a loving family. Every animal that comes through Hearts Alive Village receives a medical evaluation and any treatment necessary to get them happy, healthy, and comfortable… dogs like Jethro, a 13-year-old pit bull who was left at the shelter with a mouth full of rotted, infected teeth. He received “the works” including a full dental and is now living out his years with a wonderful daddy.  Seniors deserve love, and Hearts Alive Village makes sure they get it!

Hearts Alive Village Las Vegas (HAVLV) is a non-breed specific animal rescue whose mission is to nurture a compassionate society where animals are supported both in their homes and on their journey to find a home. The organization provides a variety of community support programs designed to keep pets with their families whenever possible. In 2020, Hearts Alive Village opened the first nonprofit, low-cost, full-service veterinary clinic in Nevada so pet parents could afford the veterinary care their pets need.

Taco The Animal Foundation

The Animal Foundation

Funded in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022

A generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will support high-quality food and medical care for senior dogs in the Keeping Every Person & Pet Together (KEPPT) program at The Animal Foundation. KEPPT will ensure cost is not a barrier to providing senior dogs special diets to keep them healthy. The program will offer pet parents, who could otherwise not afford it, options such as wet and dry food (with a variety of kibble sizes) to accommodate the needs and diets of their senior dogs. This grant will also help senior dogs in the community to get the medical care they need to remain healthy, happy, and at home with the people who love them.

The Animal Foundation is Las Vegas’ only open admission animal shelter and one of the highest volume single-site shelters in the country. In 2019 alone, The Animal Foundation admitted over 27,000 animals. As an open admission shelter, they are committed to taking in every animal who comes to them in need, no matter their age, health, behavior, or species. In 2020, they achieved their five-year Mission Possible: 2020 goal and now save all healthy and treatable animals that enter their care. Every day they work to reduce the overall number of animals who need services in the first place.

Nevada Humane Society

Funded from 2012 to 2015 and 2019

A Grey Muzzle grant will provide dental care to senior dogs in the care of Nevada Humane Society, ensuring they are healthy and happy and ready for a forever home.

Nevada Humane Society is a charitable, nonprofit organization that accepts all pets and makes every effort to save each and every one. They have been bringing people and pets together for nearly 90 years. Thanks to the tireless efforts of their employees, veterinarians, volunteers, supporters, donors, community partners and board of directors, they have been named one of the safest communities in the nation for homeless pets (Washoe County, NV).

The Shade Tree

Funded in 2016

Grey Muzzle funding helps with the medical/dental care for the senior pets at Noah's Animal House.  Noah’s is designed to house the pets of women and families who are fleeing abuse or escaping homelessness. For these fragile and distressed clients, the human and animal bond is a vital source of strength and the necessary motivation to make the difficult changes involved in crafting a new life. In domestic violence situations, a safe haven for pets is even more important. Abusers often injure these innocent animals as a means of control. Commonly, women will not leave an abuser until they are certain their pets will be safe.

The Shade Tree is a shelter for homeless and abused women and children in crisis. TST has been serving the needs of homeless and abused women and children in Southern Nevada since 1990. Noah's Animal House is a pet sanctuary on the campus of TST.
