Senior Dogs at IndyHumane Getting Grant For Their Golden Years

July 24th, 2017

The Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Gives a New Leash on Life to Local Dogs

Senior pups have something to wag about this summer, 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—and Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) dogs find themselves among the winners. IndyHumane is one of 50 organizations in 25 states receiving over $300,000 in funding from the group. Since 2008, The Grey Muzzle Organization has provided over $1 million in grants in support of its “vision of a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”

“This grant will help us give senior dogs like Buddy needed veterinary and dental care to make them more easily adoptable,” says Steven Stolen, CEO of IndyHumane, a 2017 grant awardee. “Senior pups make the best companions. No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog who knows he’s getting a second chance.”

Some other winners of this year’s Grey Muzzle Organization grants include:

Fairy Tail Endings, Inc., a Florida nonprofit dedicated to helping financially struggling families and their pets stay together. Thanks to a Grey Muzzle grant, 10-year-old Buckey is active again, after his torn cruciate ligament was surgically repaired at no cost to his devoted mom, a senior citizen living on social security.

Virginia Beach SPCA, where 7-year-old poodle-mix Henry was surrendered because his family could no longer care for him. Grey Muzzle’s grant will give Henry needed dental care, so he can go to his forever home with a healthy smile. 

“We’re delighted to help so many deserving organizations make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” says The Grey Muzzle Organization Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer. “Many senior dogs in Indianapolis are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of the Humane Society of Indianapolis.” 

Grey Muzzle Organization will receive a $10,000 award to benefit senior dogs from Boehringer Ingleheim (BI) today, as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the U.S. launch of the company’s congestive heart failure medication for dogs. Grey Muzzle will receive the donation Monday, July 24 at 12 p.m. at the American Veterinary Medical Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis. 

Michael Hamby, head of the BI U.S. Pet Veterinary Business, will present the $10,000 award to Lisa Lunghofer, Ph.D. executive director of The Grey Muzzle Organization, on behalf of BI and the recipient of the company’s first-ever Cardiology Pioneer Award, in recognition of all the veterinarians and specialists who care for dogs with congestive heart failure.

Senior dog Buddy (a current resident at IndyHumane) will attend the awards presentation representing all older dogs helped by the organization. The gift will provide senior dogs with critically-needed medical and dental care, adoption promotions, hospice care and other services that support The Grey Muzzle Organization’s “vision of a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”
