We just launched our fourth annual Summer Smile Campaign and it’s starting out bolder than ever!Make a gift to our Summer Smile Campaign and it will be matched up to $20,000, thanks to two generous donors, the Cook Family and the Pamela & Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation.
That could mean an incredible $40,000 to help senior dogs in desperate need of dental care. Double your impact and help more good, old dogs like Dozer, our Summer Smile Spokesdog.
Affectionate Dozer, an 8-years young, still full-of-life Puggle, was surrendered with his sister Zoey to the Norfolk SPCA. Time passed and the duo waited and waited to be adopted. Sadly, Dozer appeared to have never received dental care in his 96+ months on the planet, so his teeth were in bad shape. Worried that potential medical bills might be scaring off prospective adopters, Norfolk SPCA put to use their grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization.Now Dozer has a smile that can brighten anyone’s day, a forever home and the chance to live an even longer, healthier life, thanks to your support!
Our Summer Smile Campaign gives more senior dogs sweet new smiles. One of the biggest expenses facing shelters and rescues that care for senior dogs is the high cost of dental care. In fact, lack of dental care is a major barrier to adoption and the inability to provide specialized care is a common reason for owners to surrender their dog. Grey Muzzle’s dental fund eliminates those obstacles.
Can senior dogs count on you?
Your generous support will give hundreds of senior dogs the dental care they need to feel better and find--or stay in--a loving home. Remember, your donation will be DOUBLED dollar for dollar by our generous matching gift donors. That means every dollar you give equals $2 to help senior dogs smile again!
And don’t forget, we want to see your grey muzzle's smile too! Support the Summer Smile Campaign and enter your senior dog in our 2020 calendar contest. Simply make a tax-deductible donation to our Summer Smile Campaign and then upload your favorite picture of your senior pup on our campaign's GivingGrid platform. At the end of the campaign, our Advisory Board members will choose their favorite photos to be included in our 2020 Grey Muzzle calendar. A picture of the entire GivingGrid—including all of the pictures submitted—will be our December photo!
