Old dogs have something to wag about this year as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants, and dogs at Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) are among the winners. DCHS is one of 66 animal welfare groups in 30 states who were chosen from more than 300 applicants to receive a grant to help local senior dogs.
"This grant will help us provide care and veterinary services to senior dogs before they go to their forever homes," said Kim Jensen of DCHS. "Senior animals have a lot of love and affection to give and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.”
Over the past decade, the national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization has provided nearly $1.5 million in grants to support its vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”
“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like DCHS make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” Grey Muzzle’s Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer said. “Many senior dogs in Dane County are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of DCHS.”
DCHS is a private, non-profit animal shelter which provides comfort and care to over 9,000 companion and wild animals every year thanks to the generosity of the community and supporters.
The national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide. For details, please visit www.greymuzzle.org
