The Grey Muzzle – Helping Homeless Senior Dogs

To celebrate Adopt a Senior Pet Month, we’re featuring The Grey Muzzle on PetravelR’s™ Adopt a Friend. The Grey Muzzle is not a shelter or rescue group. Instead, it works to improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other non-profit groups nationwide.  Grey Muzzle funds programs such as hospice care, senior dog adoption, medical screening, and other special programs to help old dogs at animal welfare organizations across the country.

Grey Muzzle, is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) national nonprofit organization based in Raleigh, North Carolina.  They envision a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.  Grey Muzzle believes that:

  • Old dogs contribute positively to our quality of life and have much to teach us about patience, respect, responsibility, loyalty, and unconditional love.
  • Senior dogs are not disposable; they depend on us to care for them through all stages of their lives.
  • Every senior dog deserves to live out their golden years, months, weeks or even days in a place of love, security, and peace.
