    Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida
    Funded from 2019 to 2024

    Poodle and Pooch Rescue (PPR) of Florida rescues dogs in need, focusing on seniors and those with special needs. The PPR mission is to save as many “leftover” dogs as possible. These are dogs that adopters and other rescue groups passed over, many of whom have particular medical needs or are older or fearful due to past abuse or neglect.


    The Grey Muzzle grant allows PPR to expand the Saving Seniors Program, take in more senior dogs, and provide the required medical care to prepare them for adoption. Funding helps dogs like Crew, who came to PPR from a local shelter and needed lots of medical care and surgery. This 12-year-old boy is now loving life in his adopted home, lounging by (and going in) the pool, sitting in the grass staring across the pond at the neighbor’s dog, going on walks, and being a co-pilot in the car.
