Grey Matters Blog celebrates senior dogs and provides a resource for the people who care for them. It draws upon the wealth of knowledge and experience with senior dogs offered by The Grey Muzzle Organization community. Our contributors will share articles on senior dog care, as well as relevant news, success stories from our grantee organizations, and more.

Grey Muzzle Grantee Stories
Many of the dogs that end up in shelters are surrendered by owners who can no longer pay for their veterinary bills. Even for those dogs that receive care from the shelter and are adopted, this is highly traumatic. A sick senior dog is particularly at risk. Fairy Tail Endings works to keep these pets with their people.
Project Unconditional is photographer Jane Sobel Klonsky's tribute to the love we share with our older dogs. The poignant joy of her photos reminds us that the work Grey Muzzle grantees do on behalf of abandoned dogs results in dogs that find care, a home, and someone who loves them unconditionally.
Nancy LeVine's photo series Senior Dogs Across America documents senior dogs in all their variety and beauty. Earlier this year, she visited and photographed dogs at Animal Haven in New York City. We asked Animal Haven to tell us about their senior dog program and the dogs Nancy met and photographed.
