Meet some of the dogs helped by The Grey Muzzle Organization. We provide grants and other funding to pay expenses, such as medical care, so the wonderful organizations that give these dogs a second chance can focus on their care.

To learn more about these organizations, see our Who We Help page. The dogs on this page are just a sample of the elder dogs that have benefited from our grants to these organizations.

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

This 12-year-old gent was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter in southern California. He was emaciated, thinner than most of the dogs that enter The Thulani Program, but he didn’t let that get him down and he happily became a Thulani dog.

Kara

May 8, 2017

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Kara was only 8, but she fit the definition of a Thulani Dog – because their program helps the most vulnerable senior dogs and that is what she was. Kara T had the weight of the world on her, as well as a good-sized pendulant mammary tumor. Yet, she continued to share her happy-girl smile.

Puzon

May 1, 2017

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

This sweet, nine-year-old, long-haired Dachshund mix has had some drama in his life. In his younger years, Puzon was attacked by another dog who severed his esophagus, which has made it difficult for him to eat ever since. Then as a senior dog, the only family he’d ever known was moving and surrendered him to Anchorage Animal Care & Control instead of taking him along.

Coco

April 10, 2017

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

At 15 years old, Coco found himself without a family. His owners were an elderly couple - the wife passed away a few years ago and the husband developed dementia. A few months ago, the husband had to move into a facility that did not accept Coco and no family members were able to take him in. What’s a senior Dachshund to do?
