Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. (TSGSR) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing very old or terminally ill German Shepherd Dogs and mixed breed dogs from life-threatening situations. They accept shelter dogs and owner-surrender dogs from all of California, providing foster homes and medical treatment the dogs may have been lacking. Their efforts are critically needed as many shelters do not have the resources to provide in-depth care for large senior dogs, most of whom face uncertain futures as a result.
Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue's Grey Muzzle grant will fund health care for senior dogs. Most of their dogs come from shelters and have unmet medical needs, and some are simply in need of basic geriatric care, such as relief from arthritis pain and updates on vaccinations. Others have more serious health issues, many of which are treatable and, once addressed, greatly improve the dog’s quality of life. Their program is unique in that they provide free adoptions and medical care for life, all you need to add is love.
This grant was made possible thanks to the generosity of Sydney C., in memory of her beloved Shepherds Roman and Dakota.
