Saving Pets One at a Time

Funded from 2014 - 2016

How we help

The SPOT Old-Folks Sanctuary (SOS) Program is launching, in part, with the support of Grey Muzzle's grant funds. This select group of foster homes is dedicated to caring for unadoptable senior dogs with significant health issues or disabilities. Homes are screened carefully and SPOT will identify participating veterinarians and provide lifelong health care for each dog. SPOT will also provide food, treats, and maintenance supplies such as parasite treatments and supplements. This program will address the problem of homeless senior dogs by allowing SPOT to take in older animals that may have significant health issues.

About Saving Pets One at a Time

In the hopes of increasing the animal "adoption options" in Skagit County and beyond, a group of animal lovers got together in the Fall of 1999 and started a non profit alternative animal rescue and placement organization called Saving Pets One at a Time (SPOT). By increasing the options that people have, SPOT hopes that more companion animals will find loving and permanent homes. In addition, SPOT hopes to help reduce the number of homeless pets within Skagit County and beyond by insisting that all animals placed in their care are spayed or neutered.

Senior Dog Haven & Hospice

Funded from 2014 - 2015

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle helps to support their medical fund.  Sadly, many of the senior dogs they rescue have never received any kind of medical attention and now that they are elderly, unattended issues have amplified. The medical funds will cover spays, neuters, dental cleaning, surgeries, medical tests, medications, and office visits.

About Senior Dog Haven & Hospice

Senior Dog Haven and Hospice is a small, dedicated group of fosters and volunteers who have a special place in their hearts for senior dogs. We strive to improve the lives of senior dogs who find themselves without a family to care for them anymore. We do not have a facility – our dogs live in our homes as members of our families until they find their forever home or in the event of a hospice situation, until they cross the Rainbow Bridge. We provide care, comfort, companionship and, most of all, unconditional love.
