Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation

Funded in 2018

How we help

Funding from Grey Muzzle will help Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) increase the prospects for senior dog fosters and adoptions, as well as keep senior dogs in their homes. By providing additional support to those caring for older dogs with age-related medical conditions SASF expects to impact up to 150 senior dogs, like Cheddar, annually. Cheddar, a 9-year-old Korean Jindo, was pulled from an overcrowded municipal shelter. She arrived undernourished, dehydrated and with chemical burns to her face, obviously abused and neglected. She also suffered from numerous age-related conditions that had gone untreated. At SASF, she received care for dental issues, arthritis and an ulcerating eye, as well as removal of a mammary tumor. Thanks to the SASF team and programs, Cheddar is recovering in a loving foster-to-adopt home, and continues to receive ongoing medical care and support from the shelter.

SPCA Florida

Funded in 2019

How we help

The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow SPCA Florida to provide diagnostic and medical care for hospice dogs living in foster homes. Funding will also be used to provide screening and medical care for senior dogs who are up for adoption, ensuring their new families have a clear understanding of their health needs. This grant will help dogs like Blizzard, who arrived at SPCA Florida as a stray. Not much is known about him, but he is a cheerful older gentleman who loves sitting on laps. He’s around eight years old and has dental issues. Thanks to the support of The Grey Muzzle Organization, he will be able to go to his forever home and enjoy a good meal without pain.

SPCA of Texas

Funded in 2020

How we help

The grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will allow the SPCA of Texas to increase the number of senior dogs in their Fospice (Foster + Hospice) program. These dogs have a good quality of life, but the costs of their ongoing medical care are extensive, historically deterring adopters. In Fospice, the organization covers the cost of their medical care and foster volunteers take the dogs into their home, giving them loving care for the rest of their lives.

The SPCA of Texas operates two animal care and adoption centers, one animal rescue center, three low-cost care clinics and two mobile clinics to fulfill its mission of providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home.

Animal Cruelty Investigations investigates reports of animal cruelty and neglect in multiple North Texas counties.

How we help

The SPCA received a grant from Grey Muzzle for their Senior Wellness Program.

SpokAnimal C.A.R.E.

Funded in 2021 and 2022

How we help

In 2021, The Grey Muzzle Organization’s support helped SpokAnimal shelter pets like Froto receive dental care. In 2022, SpokAnimal C.A.R.E. is expanding the  partnership with SpokAnimal to help senior citizens in the Pacific Northwest obtain dental care for their senior dogs. Grant funding will remove the financial barrier to access high-quality care for senior dogs in need. At SpokAnimal’s clinic, senior pets will receive pre-procedure blood work, comprehensive dental x-rays, cleaning, and extractions. This care will not only restore oral health, it will help eliminate bad doggie breath.

About SpokAnimal C.A.R.E.

Last year, 3,478 pets found a home through SpokAnimal, including 52 senior dogs. Vibrant transport and foster programs fuel the organization’s success and have helped it become the largest humane society in eastern Washington. Last year, they launched a new Hearts and Paws program, working with seniors living in a skilled nursing facility to “timeshare” the foster care of senior dogs and facilitating the dogs’ placement into new homes–one dog at a time. They strive to support pets and pet owners by offering services such as a low-income vet clinic, the Guardian Angel temporary boarding program, and an emergency pet food bank.

St. Augustine Humane Society

Funded in 2022

How we help

The Grey Muzzle grant will offer a safety net to clients who need financial help  to pay for veterinary care. Grant funding will cover diagnostic, medical, dental, and preventative services for senior dogs like 15-year-old Kylie. Kylie’s gum disease was causing her pain and leading to other health complications, but the cost of dental work from a private veterinarian was simply more than her family could afford. The St. Augustine Humane Society performed lifesaving dental surgery, and now Kylie is enjoying her best life at home with her family.

About St. Augustine Humane Society
