Dharma Rescue for Cats and Dogs rescues dogs and cats, especially those who are elderly and disabled, from high-kill shelters and provides them with the best quality of life. At Dharma Rescue, animals are provided with with shelter, spay/neuter surgery, medical care and rehabilitation. If they need assistance to walk, they are fitted for a specialized wheelchair as part of the D.A.W.G.S. program (Disabled Animals Who Generously Serve), which also certifies them as therapy animals. Through this program, Dharma dogs have provided comfort to the elderly, veterans, college students and children with disabilities.
A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will fund both routine and emergency medical procedures for senior dogs, including ongoing bloodwork, urinalysis and teeth cleaning.
