Meet some of the senior dogs helped by The Grey Muzzle Organization. We provide grants to support lifesaving, innovative senior dog programs across the country. These are just a few of the senior dogs who got their second chance thanks to the work of our grantees and the generosity of our supporters.

To learn more about the organizations we fund, see our Grants Recipients page. The dogs featured here have found their forever homes, but you can find adoptable senior dogs on our Senior Spotlight page.

Other: Post Adoption Support

Margot, estimated to be 12-years-old, came under the care of Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue when she was completely bald and with a fractured shoulder. She was placed in a foster home, where she started treatments to clear up her skin and fur, and had an x-ray of her shoulder sent to specialists. A grant from the Grey Muzzle Organization, funded by your generosity, helped to cover these costs so that Margot could begin to heal.
