Two by Two gives life to all abandoned, abused, stray, and distressed animals without regard to age, breed, color, or medical condition, and keeps pets in their homes by offering relief to people in crisis. One of the nonprofit’s main goals is to reduce euthanasia and improve lifesaving rates throughout Alabama, a state with a 36.5% kill rate. Two by Two is proud of their success saving 96% of the animals they take in. They provide necessary medical care, a loving foster home, and a loving forever home, whenever possible. Two by Two has steadily increased the number of dogs they serve from 200 in 2016 to 950 in 2020, more than 150 of which were senior dogs.
Two by Two is committed to saving as many senior dogs as possible in Birmingham, AL. Mr. Grumplestein’s Legacy is named in honor of a senior Chihuahua whose deformed leg, advanced age, and lack of teeth put him at risk in the local shelter. This is a new program that will give senior dogs like Mr. Grumplestein the second chance they deserve. The program will provide comprehensive medical care, including vaccinations, blood work, and any needed medication. The Grey Muzzle grant will enable Two by Two to save more than 150 older dogs during the grant period.
