The grant will help the shelter continue their Senior Care Program.

Indianapolis -IndyHumane received $11,000 from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help continue their successful Senior Care program by saving 25 senior dogs at risk of euthanasia. Grey Muzzle’s grant will directly underwrite the cost of medical & dental care (approximately $440 per dog) for at least 25 senior dogs pulled from Indianapolis Animal Care Services (IACS) this year. 

Dogs like Prince – a sweet 7-year-old who was surrendered to IACS after being found as a stray. He was then transferred to IndyHumane where he received a full senior work up which can include blood work, urinalysis, full veterinarian exam, dental work, and X-rays.

Prince is fully healthy and ready to find his own home. He’s currently in foster and is available for adoption. You can find out more at 

“We are so grateful for The Grey Muzzle Organization’s continued support of senior dogs like Prince,” said IndyHumane CEO, Donna Casamento. “No one is more loving and appreciative than an old dog, and we are so fortunate to be the ones to help them find their new homes.”
