Chance, the Beagle Chance

Penny Angel's Beagle Rescue

Funded from 2014 - 2015

How we help

Many senior citizens would love a dog or struggle to keep their dogs but simply cannot afford the health care bills. Grey Muzzle's grant funding helps Penny's Angels Beagle Rescue with medical expenses for adoptable dogs, so that those who can most benefit from their companionship will have assistance in their care. This includes dentals, special food, heartworm tests, meds, arthritis maintenance, and senior blood panels. 

About Penny Angel's Beagle Rescue

Penny Angels Beagle Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to beagle rescue and community education of the breed. We provide rescue for beagles from New Jersey shelters, stray beagles and beagles from homes that can no longer keep their dog. We rescue purebred beagles and beagle mixes that are puppies, adults and senior beagles. We are based out of South Jersey & serve all of New Jersey and the tri-state area.

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

Funded in 2014

How we help

One of Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s (PAGO) major goals is to help senior companion animals live long, healthy and happy lives with their human families.  Grant funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps to support their Pet Food Xpress program (PFX) that provides thousands of nourishing meals each year to senior companion dogs living with homebound elderly families in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. Once a month, free of charge, volunteers deliver dog food that has been packaged by PAGO staff and volunteers to the seniors and their pets. All of these seniors are on a fixed income. Through this program, the seniors are able to keep their dogs in their homes while providing them with proper nutrition. PFX volunteers often visit with the seniors, giving them much needed company. During these visits, volunteers are able to identify specific needs of the pets that are then followed up on by PAGO staff. 

About Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

As the go-to pet experts across Central Florida, the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando does good things for dogs and cats and the people who love them.  Formerly the SPCA of Central Florida, our goal is to provide compassionate and knowledgeable services for pets and to be leaders in innovative animal care and veterinary medicine.  More than 10,000 homeless dogs and cats will turn to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for caring, compassion, and hope through our animal shelters this year.  Our highly skilled veterinarians will help and heal an additional 45,000 animals in our veterinary clinics.  Providing shelter for animals in crisis, disaster response efforts, and pet food pantry for dogs and cats in need, we will help thousands of additional animals this year.

Pet Animal Welfare Society

Funded in 2015

How we help

A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps with their “Mutticare” fund.  This innovative program seeks to facilitate the adoption of senior dogs by providing a financial “safety net” to pay for any medical issues that arise for older dogs post-adoption.  By removing the barrier of potentially high medical expenses, it is hoped that more seniors will find homes.  

About Pet Animal Welfare Society

PAWS is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in operation since 1962 by Westport, Connecticut resident Betty Long to rescue homeless dogs and place them in permanent homes. In the early 1980s, rescue efforts were expanded to include cats. PAWS rescues & rehomes approximately 115 dogs and 435 cats annually. Many of the dogs faced euthanasia at local pounds and most of the cats that we help are strays and abandoned cats that roam our streets. A portion of the pets that come to PAWS have been relinquished by their owners who are no longer able to care for them.

Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue

Funded in 2016

How we help

Funding from Grey Muzzle helps Proverbs 12:10 with medical expenses for senior dogs.  In addition, we help support their goal to recruit more fosters, adopters and funding for senior dogs so they can accept more senior dogs.

The issue of senior dog placement will be highlighted on their Facebook page, newsletter and in their foster recruitment program.  The program aims to target “active retirement communities” in the area by posting flyers on their bulletin boards, sending speakers to their clubs and walking dogs with “adopt me” scarves in their communities.    

About Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue

The mission of Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue is to provide shelter and loving care for animals that have been abused, abandoned, owner surrendered or otherwise destined to be euthanized due to over-crowded shelter conditions. Through the use of foster homes, Proverbs will provide loving care for our animals, to include veterinary care, food and any other necessities until responsible, loving homes can be found for all adoptable pets. All animals shall be spayed or neutered and we will make every effort to encourage those we encounter to do the same.
