Grant recipients include:

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

Funded in 2016

How we help

Grant funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps Brother Wolf with major medical expenses associated with taking in and adopting out senior dogs.  Senior dogs become more "adoptable" to the general public when their medical needs are addressed.  

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is a No Kill organization based in Asheville, North Carolina and was founded in 2007 to provide the resources and life-saving programs to build a No Kill community.

As a grassroots organization, BWAR operates a one-of-a-kind adoption center that is open to the public 365 days a year making it easy to adopt, volunteer, and become involved.

Brown County Humane Society

Funded in 2016

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps to supplement medical costs for their “Seniors for Seniors” adoption program.  Even though the cost of Seniors for Seniors adoption is a third of the regular fee, the potential owners may not have the financial ability to absorb additional costs of vet care. By helping with those costs, adoptions will increase. 

About Brown County Humane Society

The mission of the BCHS is to promote the welfare, compassionate care and protection of animals, taking all domestic animals brought to us, finding suitable homes for adoptable animals, providing information, raising public awareness of animal issues, and promoting responsible pet ownership.

Canine Adoption and Rescue League

Funded in 2016

How we help

Grey Muzzle grant monies were used to restart “Sam’s Senior Dog Program” whose purpose is to rescue senior dogs from the local county shelter and rehome them through the following infrastructure:
 • The local county shelter notifies C.A.R.L. of all dogs they take in aged 10 or older. 
• C.A.R.L. provides medical assistance as needed, foster homes where possible, and indoor pens at C.A.R.L.’s Pet Care Center when foster homes are not available. 
• The dogs are cared for and adopted out using existing volunteer programs or entered into their sanctuary foster program for terminal dogs to be fostered indefinitely, with no expectation that they are ever adopted out.  

About Canine Adoption and Rescue League

Canine Adoption and Rescue League’s mission is to advocate for animal welfare, seeking to end the needless deaths of companion animals through their adoption, education, and outreach programs.

Connecticut Humane Society

Funded in 2016

How we help

Grey Muzzle’s grant will help provide veterinary care to senior dogs in animal control, as well as senior pets in the care of private animal shelters and rescues as resources allow.

As New England pet demographics evolve, CHS is seeing less of a prevalence of shelter euthanasia and overcrowding and a dramatic rise of pets in need of extra care such as dentistry, injury treatment, or other illnesses. Senior pets in particular tend to fall into this category of needing extra help. Once brought to full health, these pets make excellent companions. 

About Connecticut Humane Society

The Connecticut Humane Society (CHS) is the leading resource in the state for companion animal welfare, enriching the lives of families and communities through adoption services, medical care, education, and prevention of cruelty.
