The Animal Foundation (TAF) is Las Vegas’ only open-admission animal shelter and one of the highest volume single-site shelters in the country. In 2018 alone, TAF admitted over 26,000 animals. As an open-admission shelter, they are committed to taking in every animal who comes to them in need, no matter their age, health, behavior, or species. They are also committed to Mission: Possible 2020, a five-year plan to become a shelter that saves all healthy and treatable animals entering their care by the end of 2020. Every day they work to reduce the overall number of animals who need services in the first place. Through focused outreach, creative programming, and affordable services, they are addressing the root causes of animal overpopulation and homelessness in the community.  

Funded in 2018, 2019, and 2021
How we help: 

This generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will provide training to the Veterinary Services team at The Animal Foundation (TAF), enabling them to treat dental trauma and disease in senior dogs in their care. Their program, The Veterinary Services Dental Health Initiative for Senior Dogs, aims to alleviate the dental issues and associated problems senior dogs endure, which will increase their quality of life and chance of being adopted. Grey Muzzle funds will help dogs like Diamond, a radiant seven-year-old lab/pit bull mix, who found herself in need of new home through no fault of her own. Having received the dental care she needed, she’s all smiles now and looking forward to finding her forever family.
