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.

Medical Expense Grant

A message from National Mill Dog Rescue founder, Theresa Strader

As I reflect back on 2016, there are certain dogs that stand out for one reason or another-- seniors whose bodies are ravaged from years of overproduction and confinement, the most timid dogs that are terrified of our touch, dogs that are sick or dogs that were in such horrible condition they were unrecognizable as dogs. These are the dogs that touch and break our hearts the most.
