Founded in 1955, Woods Humane Society is a privately funded, non‐profit, animal sheltering and welfare organization that annually places up to 3,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. All animals in their adoption program are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before being placed for adoption. In addition, Woods serves more than 6,000 animals annually through lifesaving and life-enhancing programs, including adoption, low-cost spay and neuter, pet pantry resources, and affordable dog training classes.
Support from Grey Muzzle will allow Woods Humane Society to provide needed veterinary care and find loving forever homes for more senior dogs. Funds will cover the cost of a spay or neuter surgery, a health exam, vaccinations, a microchip, and any needed treatments, such as dental procedures, for 18 senior dogs in Woods Humane Society’s adoption program. With Grey Muzzle’s support, more dogs like Holly, an adorable 13-year-old Bichon Frisé who came to the shelter with stage two kidney disease and significant dental disease, will receive the loving care they deserve. Woods started Holly on a prescription diet to stabilize her kidneys, performed a dental cleaning, and extracted nine painful teeth before helping her find a loving home where she could live out her golden years in comfort and love.
