Pawmetto Lifeline

Funded from 2017 to 2020

How we help

The Grey Muzzle grant funding goes to Pawmetto Lifeline’s medical fund which helps dogs with medical needs, many of which are considered senior dogs for their respective breeds. The grant is applied to specific medical care and treatment of older dogs belonging to owners with limited financial ability to provide the needed care essential for the well-being of their beloved companions.  The in-house Wellness Clinic at Pawmetto Lifeline provides the majority of these medical – and dental – services. Grey Muzzle funds are also directed to cover medical needs of senior dogs that they rescue from municipal shelters and prepare them for our adoption program. 

About Pawmetto Lifeline

Pawmetto Lifeline is a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal rescue organization with a plan to end pet overpopulation in the Midlands through education, legislation, spay/neuter programs, and responsible pet adoptions. Its long-term goal is to transform the Midlands into a no-kill community, meaning no healthy and adoptable pet is euthanized simply because it is homeless.  The organization also works to  solve companion pet homelessness  through its pet retention programs. Pawmetto Lifeline’s Pet Retention Program  was established in 2015 to assist people and their pets with medical services so their pet can stay with the family.  This program combines services that have already been in place, and further expands its offering of programs and services to provide a full range of resources that help individuals with limited financial ability to keep their pets and avoid surrendering animals to municipal shelters.

About Paws Humane Society

Paws Humane Society is the largest companion animal welfare organization in the region. Paws’ mission is to enrich the lives of both animals and people as a solution-based community resource for animal welfare by providing high-volume and high quality spay/neuter, rescue and adoption services, volunteer opportunities, outreach and education.

Founded in 2009, Paws has been saving the lives of animals in need for over 10 years. Although Paws has only been in existence for a decade, its roots date back to 1969 when Colonel Syd Sacerdote established the first animal shelter in Muscogee County called the Muscogee County Humane Society. Then, in 1999, a group of animal welfare advocates who were dedicated to helping save even more animals created and started PAWS Columbus. By the year 2009, these two groups decided to merge together to form Paws Humane Society as it is known today.

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

Funded in 2014

How we help

One of Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s (PAGO) major goals is to help senior companion animals live long, healthy and happy lives with their human families.  Grant funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps to support their Pet Food Xpress program (PFX) that provides thousands of nourishing meals each year to senior companion dogs living with homebound elderly families in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. Once a month, free of charge, volunteers deliver dog food that has been packaged by PAGO staff and volunteers to the seniors and their pets. All of these seniors are on a fixed income. Through this program, the seniors are able to keep their dogs in their homes while providing them with proper nutrition. PFX volunteers often visit with the seniors, giving them much needed company. During these visits, volunteers are able to identify specific needs of the pets that are then followed up on by PAGO staff.
