The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow the Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO) to provide diagnostic and medical care for hospice dogs living in foster homes. Funding will also be used to provide screening and medical care for senior dogs who are up for adoption, ensuring their new families have a clear understanding of their health needs. This grant helps dogs like Squidward who arrived at the Humane Society of Central Oregon as a stray with no known history. While at HSCO, he was diagnosed with dental disease, painful hips, and a small growth that needed removal. After receiving the care he needed, a local veterinarian saw him and fell in love. Squidward (now Charlie) is enjoying his forever home with his two human and feline siblings!
