Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue

Funded from 2020 to 2022

How we help

Thanks to the grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization, Mostly Mutts will be able to provide dental cleanings to all senior dogs, who can now go to their forever homes with shiny healthy teeth. Grant funding will also help pay for heartworm treatments for those seniors that need it.

About Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue

Since 2004, Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue & Adoptions has been working to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters in metro Atlanta. They work closely with animal control officers to save adoptable dogs that are moments away from being put to sleep. Often, these dogs are sick and injured and require rehabilitation. Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training and physical and emotional care to them until they can be placed in a new home.

Funded from 2008 to 2016 and 2019 to 2022

How we help

Every one of the more than 1,000 senior dogs that Muttville rescues each year needs medical care to prepare them for a successful and comfortable new beginning. The Grey Muzzle Organization's funding will increase Muttville's in-house veterinary program capacity, which will reduce pain and suffering by providing care more quickly, lower costs, and minimize the amount of time between intake and adoption. This support helps dogs like Polka and Dottie, a bonded pair who both desperately needed dental care to alleviate their pain and help them be adopted into a loving home. Grey Muzzle grants have supported hundreds of senior dogs through Muttville’s programs, including Seniors for Seniors and hospice.

About Muttville

Muttville is based in San Francisco, California and is dedicated to creating better lives for senior dogs (age seven and older) through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education, and advocacy. Founded in 2007, Muttville was one of the first organizations in the country dedicated to saving senior dogs. Today, Muttville operates a cage-free facility with an in-house veterinary clinic, and saves over 1,000 senior dogs each year.

Naperville Area Humane Society

Funded in 2021

How we help

The Naperville Area Humane Society is grateful for a generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to support the Lucky 7 Fund, which provides diagnostic and medical treatment to all senior dogs in their care. This grant will ensure 20 senior dogs receive medical, dental, and preventative services that will not only make them feel better but also help them find forever homes more quickly.

Nate's Honor Animal Rescue

Funded in 2021

How we help

Nate's Honor Animal Rescue (NHAR) provides a loving haven for rescued dogs and cats on their way to finding their forever homes. NHAR saves lives and works to create a supportive, family-friendly environment that inspires a bond between animals and those who love them. In the past 10 years, NHAR has worked collaboratively with local agencies to increase adoption rates from 500 animals a year, to more than 2000. 

About Nate's Honor Animal Rescue

With support from Grey Muzzle, Nate's Honor Animal Rescue is able to provide post-adoption support to adopters of senior pets with special needs. Typically, it takes 90 days for adopters to fully bond with their new pet, and medical expenses during that time often mean a return to the shelter. By providing three months of medication or follow-up treatment for a medical or behavioral issue, adopters have time to bond with their senior pet without worrying about unforeseen costs.

Funded from 2018 to 2022

How we help

The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow NMDOG to provide initial and ongoing medical care to the senior dogs who are Forever Fosters in the NMDOG Home Sanctuary Program. This program allows previously chained senior dogs like Sterling, who have special medical or behavioral needs, to live out their lives with a forever family. Funding will cover the costs of emergency services, diagnostics, medical care, supplements, and prescription medications for the senior dogs placed with Home Sanctuary providers. 


Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, NMDOG was established in 2010 and has saved thousands of dogs’ lives over its ten-year history. NMDOG reaches out across the state of New Mexico to the dogs who need help the most: the chained, the abandoned, the victims of the most horrific cases of cruelty, and lastly, the forgotten ones. NMDOG focuses their efforts on rescue, community outreach, education, rehabilitation, adoption and networking. When called upon, NMDOG works closely with Law Enforcement Agencies, shelters throughout New Mexico and rescues in surrounding states. They have also been integral in passing anti-tethering legislation. In recent years, NMDOG has developed a Home Sanctuary program for senior dogs who have lifetime and costly behavioral and/or medical needs, providing the loving home they deserve for the rest of their days.
