No Old Dog Deserves to Die Alone: This amazing organization is saving senior shelter dogs
Of all the dogs languishing in shelters, the ones that really break our hearts are the oldies—the sweet seniors found as strays or dropped off at animal control when their care becomes too burdensome or costly. Their grey faces and clouded eyes seem to beseech: what have I done to deserve this? Facing reduced adoption prospects, many simply don’t make it out.
Stepping in to change this is The Grey Muzzle Organization, a registered non-profit that believes no old dog deserves to die alone and afraid. The Grey Muzzle team is dedicated to creating a world in which every senior dog is cherished.
“Although they have so much love and companionship to give, senior dogs are among the first to be euthanized and last to be adopted,” says Lisa Lunghofer, Executive Director of The Grey Muzzle Organization.
