Since 2008, The Grey Muzzle Organization has granted $230,000 to help homeless and at-risk senior dogs across the country. Meet Lollie (pictured), and others who have benefitted from the grants, and learn how nonprofit organizations are putting the funds to work to save senior dog lives!
The primary form of communication for dogs is body language. It is important for you to learn more about this language, especially if you are caring for senior dogs, in order to understand their changing needs.
A new book by Jennifer Kachnic, Grey Muzzle Advisory Board member, has been dedicated to the organization, and includes input from several experts associated with Grey Muzzle. Your Dog's Golden Years includes natural remedies and complementay options, as well as expert advice from veterinarians. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Grey Muzzle and senior dog rescues.
Generous donations to The Grey Muzzle Organization’s Bed Fund flowed out recently as 30 dog beds arrived in 14 shelters around the country. Resting and sleeping off hard, cold shelter floors makes all the difference to elderly dogs.
In September, The Grey Muzzle Organization received a donation of more than $8,000 from HMS Helps, the community giving program of Health Management Systems, Inc. (HMS), a nationwide company headquartered in Irving, Texas.
In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet month, The Grey Muzzle Organization is taking an untraditional approach to the typical dog walk. Rather than requiring participants to lace up sneakers and walk a few miles, the organization is hosting an online Virtual Old Dog Walk.
