$10,000 was awarded to Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida for senior dog medical care. This grant is made possible by the generosity of Bill L. in memory of his beloved Carlos. Bill says about Carlos, "He was the light of my life and comforted me in tough times. I am a better person for being a daddy to this special dog. Everyone who met him loved him and he loved everyone he met."

The second annual Susan Piskorski Grant was awarded to Second City Canine Rescue of the Chicago area. They received $12,450 to provide much-needed dental exams and periodontal treatments for senior dogs. The Piskorski family’s generosity honors their love for their precious dogs Josie, Abbee, Ski and Barree. Sue says, "Every dog should have the opportunity to live with dignity, surrounded by love, care, and compassion, especially in their later years. The Grey Muzzle Organization is all about that. That is why we support it and always will."

Long-time grantee, Live Love Animal Rescue, received $10,000 in memory of ‘Mr. Sunshine’, Larry. Larry’s daughter, Stephanie, donated in her dad’s memory, and said, “If [we] could aid in helping pups live out their lives happy and comfortable, that would be Larry’s ultimate goal.” LLAR will use their grant for senior dog medical care, including preventative exams that help keep dogs in their homes.
