Grey Muzzle Grant Recipients

Grant recipients include:

Kitty and K-9 Connection

Funded in 2016

How we help

Funding from a Grey Muzzle grant helps Kitty and K-9 Connection to provide dental care for senior dogs.  Approximately 98% of their rescued senior dogs require dentals and, because dental costs are expensive, we anticipate this funding will allow them to rescue additional senior dogs from the local shelter.

About Kitty and K-9 Connection

Kitty and K-9 Connection is devoted to saving the lives of homeless and abandoned cats and dogs, finding them loving and life­time homes, advocating for spay and neuter of all pets, promoting responsible pet ownership and providing pet ownership education.

Knoxville-Knox County Council on Aging (Knox PAWS)

Funded from 2015 to 2019 and 2021

How we help

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will allow KnoxPAWS to provide at least 12 new senior pet placements this year, completely covering the costs of the adoption and veterinary visits for our participants, including much needed dental work, laboratory diagnostics, and preventative care. The grant will also allow many of these senior pets to be professionally groomed several times throughout the year. Human senior participants will not have to worry about providing anything but love to their senior furry friends.

About Knoxville-Knox County Council on Aging (Knox PAWS)

KnoxPAWS is a program of the Knoxville Knox County CAC/Office on Aging in Knoxville, Tennessee. Since 2004 KnoxPAWS has been matching eligible seniors with adoptable older pets. Companionship is crucial for older adults to help prevent isolation and depression.  Research indicates that pets improve seniors’ physical, emotional, and mental health.  The Knox PAWS does not house animals, but rather works with area animal shelters to match older pets with qualified senior citizens.

black and white dog Jenga


Funded in 2021

How we help

The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will increase the number of senior dogs KodiakCare can save. KodiakCare works with Angell Animal Medical Center to serve pet owners with great financial need from Boston and Western Massachusetts. KodiakCare knows that the best place for a dog, especially a senior dog, is with their loving family, and finances should not be a barrier for that bond. Jenga, a 10-year-old beagle mix, is just one example of a senior dog saved by KodiakCare. He needed surgery that his family simply could not afford. They were heartbroken to say goodbye, but KodiakCare stepped in and kept the family whole. KodiakCare thanks the Grey Muzzle Organization for helping save dogs like Jenga and bringing them back home.

About KodiakCare

KodiakCare saves the lives of dogs by providing funding for critical veterinary care to families who lack financial means. KodiakCare partners with animal hospitals - to helps families avoid the tragic decisions to either surrender or euthanize because they can’t afford medical care to alleviate their suffering. With KodiakCare’s help, owners can save their dogs and keep their beloved pets.

League for Animal Welfare

Funded in 2021

How we help

The League is excited to partner with The Grey Muzzle Organization to expand the number of senior dogs they can take into their facility and find homes for as part of the None Left Behind program. This program helps place senior pets like 10-year-old Cindy Lou into homes quickly, by covering the cost of post-adoption veterinary care. None Left Behind allows adopters to bring a senior into their home, without worrying about the possibility of prohibitively expensive vet care. The Grey Muzzle Organization will help the League provide that security.

Legacy Boxer Rescue

Funded in 2020

How we help

The generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will support and expand the Legacy Silver and Legacy Keepers programs. Keepers are boxers that find a new lease on life through Legacy Boxer Rescue (LBR), but are not available for adoption typically due to age-related and health issues. These boxers are considered to be in hospice care and will be loved and cared for by their foster families for the remainder of their lives. 

About Legacy Boxer Rescue

Since 2004, Legacy Boxer Rescue's (LBR) all-volunteer mission has been to seek out boxers in need in North Texas, and create the legacy they deserve– a loving family and home of their own. To achieve this mission, LBR pulls dogs in need from shelters and accepts surrendered dogs directly from owners without regard to age or health. LBR has 233 active volunteers and averages 100-150 adoptions each year. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

How we help
