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

Love is blind and Penelope would agree. This sweet, 15-year-old Shih Tzu found herself at a shelter in New York because her family could no longer care for her. She needed both of her eyes removed due to untreated issues, and the cost of treatment and time to heal were both too much for the shelter to handle.
