I found this charity through another charity that helps senior dogs. Every year that I continue to volunteer with Grey Muzzle, I am awed by the variety of senior dogs they help, and by the different programs throughout the country which are coming up with ways to help senior pooches. I do other related volunteering and I must say, you can have the best program in the world but you won't be effective without money. Grey Muzzle removes some of that worry, by offering funding for non-profits who ar helping senior dogs. What a great idea! The people in the trenches can concentrate on the dogs, and Grey Muzzle can help keep those programs going. Grey Muzzle comes up with interesting fundraisers throughout the year, and as the organization has grown, so have the number of dogs they have helped. This isn't like the really huge animal welfare agencies, who take in a bunch of money and spend it on administrative costs, advertising, and return-address-stickers to be sent to unsuspecting people. This is the perfect balance of national exposure and local involvement. Money is raised all over the country, and the grants are awarded all over the country too. You can help in hands-on ways, or you can help from afar; there really is something for everyone here. But most importantly, it all goes to the dogs. If you are considering taking on a new volunteer committment, please consider Grey Muzzle. If you are considering making a donation to a great cause, please consider Grey Muzzle. And if you are a non-profit that helps senior dogs, please keep an eye on their website because grant windows open up twice a year. I have been with Grey Muzzle for years and have no intention of stopping. This is a great organization and they really are making a difference in the lives of vulnerable senior dogs.

I am honored to have recently become a member of the Grey Muzzle's Advisory Board. Grey Muzzle's commitment to helping senior dogs is commendable. I have found every member of the team to be dedicated 100% to the organization's mission. I continue to be particularly impressed by the leadership of board president Jenny Kachnic who, like her team members, works passionately and tirelessly to fulfill the organization's mission. The growth of the Grey Muzzle over the past few years reflects the high quality of the organization and the dedication of its volunteers.

I had one dog that I adopted at 2 years old because I "dont do puppies". While I love puppies, I found them to be too time consuming for a single gal. I had always planned to adopt my second dog at 2 years of age as well since it worked great with my first boy- until Grey Muzzle. I learned that most dogs after the age of 5 or 6 years do not get adopted because they are "too old" even though they have a Lot of Love to give. Grey Muzzle made me realize that I should consider an older dog. And I did. It took a while, but I finally found "my" dog. He was 7 years old at the time. He was energetic for his age, but once I put him on a small heart murmur pill, he is now bounding with energy - you'd think he is only 2! Thank you Grey Muzzle, for opening my mind to a new way of thinking. Sincerely, Ashley Meredith McClymont

The Grey Muzzle organization is one of the many pet-oriented groups that I work with. They have contributed to the well-being of countless older pets, and instruction to their human counterparts in numerous ways. They are a top-drawer, top-notch group of dedicated individuals.
