Meet some of the senior dogs helped by The Grey Muzzle Organization. We provide grants to support lifesaving, innovative senior dog programs across the country. These are just a few of the senior dogs who got their second chance thanks to the work of our grantees and the generosity of our supporters.

To learn more about the organizations we fund, see our Grants Recipients page. The dogs featured here have found their forever homes, but you can find adoptable senior dogs on our Senior Spotlight page.

Medical Expense Grant

Pooky was one of 13 small senior dogs surrendered after their owner tragically passed away from Covid-19. Because of Grey Muzzle's continued investment in the senior "ISO" dog program, which focuses on helping dogs in Chicago's most heavily populated, open-admission shelters, One Tail at a Time was able to rescue all 13 seniors and place them in a loving foster home.

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Bristol is a happy-go-lucky, seven-year-old Golden Retriever who's just beginning her “golden years.” Her family thought she was “too old” to have puppies, so let her out in their yard unsupervised. Bristol is not spayed and apparently, had a visitor or two! Her owners were surprised by the arrival of unexpected puppies--they thought she was simply putting on some weight!

Keeping Senior Dogs in Homes

Elvis was Anderson Humane Society’s very first “client” to benefit from their Grey Muzzle grant! This adorable 13-year-old Lhasa Apso was picked up as a stray.

Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program Grant

Gannon, a small but mighty 12-year old Dachshund, has found himself in and out of Lollypop Farm over the last couple of years due to his sassiness. It seems that in his golden years, he is a bit grumpier and his previous families have had trouble managing and working with his bad manners.
