HVARS is a dog and cat rescue that offers a low-cost wellness and surgical center and a wildlife rehabilitation center. HVARS also has a hospice and home care program so senior or terminally ill dogs can live out their remaining years in a quiet, loving, safe environment.
Hudson Valley Animal Rescue and Sanctuary (HVARS) will use the Grey Muzzle grant to fund medical care for senior dogs and keep them in their homes if possible. With the help of this grant, their clinic will provide services at one-third of the cost of private veterinary care. HVARS also will collaborate with other rescues by taking in senior dogs like Blondie and Darla when these shelters do not have the facilities to provide them with necessary medical care.
