KC Pet Project

Funded in 2016

How we help

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization purchased equipment to enable the KC Pet Project to provide senior dogs with in-house dental care, supplementing the lifesaving services provided to approximately 1,000 senior dogs per year.  Dental and/or periodontal disease is common to senior dogs and can be very painful for the dog and very expensive for a new adopter!  When faced with the adoption of a dog that is going to immediately need dental care and treatment, many potential adopters turn towards a puppy or younger dog.

About KC Pet Project

KC Pet Project is a 501c3, nonprofit charitable organization operating the Kansas City, Missouri Animal Shelter. They care for nearly 10,000 animals a year and work collaboratively with Animal Control and other animal welfare organizations to increase the number of homeless pets adopted, and focus on lifesaving programs promoting pet retention, identification, lost pet reunions, and pet ownership education throughout the community.

Kitty and K-9 Connection

Funded in 2016

How we help

Funding from a Grey Muzzle grant helps Kitty and K-9 Connection to provide dental care for senior dogs.  Approximately 98% of their rescued senior dogs require dentals and, because dental costs are expensive, we anticipate this funding will allow them to rescue additional senior dogs from the local shelter.

About Kitty and K-9 Connection

Funded from 2015 - 2016

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps with their “Knox PAWS program” of the Knoxville-Knox County CAC Office on Aging that has partnered with local shelters and rescue groups to match adoptable pets with low-income seniors who need a companion and can provide loving homes.
 
Pets adopted by Knox PAWS’ participants are given an initial medical exam, vaccinated, given a microchip, are spayed or neutered, and are provided with six months of heartworm and flea prevention medication.

About Knoxville-Knox County Council on Aging

The CAC Office on Aging is a public nonprofit agency. It has the major responsibility in Knoxville and Knox County of planning for services for senior citizens; assessing needs of older citizens and developing resources to meet those needs; coordinating services for the elderly to minimize duplication and avoid overlap–whether provided by public, nonprofit, or for-profit organizations; providing information about services and programs to older citizens and their families and connecting them to those services; and advocating on behalf of older citizens.
 
The Knox PAWS Program has two goals:
 
·         To reduce loneliness and stress as well as improve the physical and mental health of seniors by matching them with a pet that is in need of a loving home.

Lionel's Legacy

Funded from 2014 - 2016

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle is helping to launch a vital program to help seniors on fixed incomes keep their pets in their home by providing financial support for food and medical, or in the event that seniors are no longer able to care for their pets we would be able to take them under our wing and care for their pets needs.  Many elderly people have to let go of their senior pets, sometimes their only companions, and that is hard enough but knowing they can turn to an organization that will support them with resources or a new home for their senior dog will be of great help to senior dogs, our community and keep these loving dogs out of shelters.

About Lionel's Legacy

Lionel's Legacy is a 501c3 non-profit San Diego-based senior dog rescue and humane education program for elementary school children inspired by a senior pit mix named Lionel. It is their goal to save and advocate for ONE senior furbaby at a time, and support anyone who is willing to do the same.

The second component to Lionel’s Legacy is the message shared with children - through their humane education program they are working to provide an educational program to students who have a passion for animals. The goal is for students to become compassionate, advocating, respectful, and educated animal lovers who can share their new found knowledge with their peers and leave a legacy that Lionel will remember!
