Grey Muzzle Grant Recipients

Grant recipients include:

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.

Cache Humane Society

Funded in 2012 and 2016

How we help

Grey Muzzle's grant will help Cache Humane Society with the Senior Dogs Dental Program - the goal of which is to have the at-risk senior dogs, who are otherwise in good condition, get a complete dental cleaning to make them more attractive to potential adopters.

About Cache Humane Society

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.

Companion Animal Rehabilitation Emergency Medical Fund

Funded in 2017

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle supports the Companion Animal Rehabilitation Emergency Medical Fund's Senior Animal Wellness Program to provide medical and dental care to senior pets. C.A.R.E. Medical Fund's mission is to bring otherwise unadoptable companion animals to an adoptable condition by providing emergency medical funding and assistance to local shelter pets.

Senior pets are often seen as unadoptable regardless of their health condition. We believe that the word "unadoptable" is a relative term and to label a dog unadoptable simply because of its age is wrong. We believe that we can give seniors an advantage to getting them adopted and out of the shelter quickly by providing this program to the shelter.
 

About Companion Animal Rehabilitation Emergency Medical Fund

Companion Animal Rehabilitation Emergency Medical Fund (C.A.R.E. Medical Fund) was founded in 2013 and brings otherwise unadoptable companion animals to an adoptable condition by providing emergency medical funding and assistance to local shelter pets.

Compassion Without Borders

Funded in 2017

How we help

Funding from Grey Muzzle helps Compassion Without Borders expand their rescue missions to include senior dogs, saving the lives of older dogs that would otherwise face certain euthanasia or hardship in overcrowded shelters. This program provides medical and dental care to senior dogs and works to move these animals out of shelters and into loving homes.

About Compassion Without Borders

Compassion without Borders brings brighter futures to animals in need on both sides of the border. They focus their efforts where the need is the greatest, but where animals are the very least likely to be helped due to financial, geographic, and cultural barriers.

Their programs include a dog rescue program from Mexico and the Central Valley, along with free veterinary wellness and spay/neuter clinics in underserved communities on both sides of the border. They also have a humane euthanasia program in Mexico, where They are actively working to stop electrocution, a common method of killing unwanted animals south of the border.

Connecticut Humane Society

Funded from 2016 - 2017

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.
