Senior Dogs at National Mill Dog Rescue will receive grant for their Golden Years
Senior pups have something to wag about this week, as the national nonprofit, The Grey Muzzle Organization, announces the recipients of its annual grants for animal welfare organizations providing programs for at-risk senior dogs.
"We always have lots of dental expenses for the senior dogs we rescue, as 99 percent of them have had no dental care their entire lives. They have lived in cages, with little human contact, useful only as near-constant breeding machines for the pet store and Internet trade," says Theresa Strader, NMDR founder and executive director. "So we plan to use the generous grant from Grey Muzzle to cover many of the extensive dentals we'll perform this year for our precious seniors. Once they are treated by our veterinary team, they feel 100 percent better. Seeing them go from sad to happy is our greatest joy. Once they feel good, it is easy to help them move into lifelong homes and become the beloved pets they were meant to be."
"One of the most gratifying parts of our work is getting to hear success stories of old dogs getting a second chance in their golden years," says The Grey Muzzle Organization Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer. "We're thrilled to help so many deserving organizations like National Mill Dog Rescue give senior dogs the happy endings they deserve."
A complete list of Grey Muzzle's 2016 grantees, including videos and photos, is available at www.greymuzzle.org and upon request.
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 non-profit groups nationwide. Learn more here: http://www.greymuzzle.org/
