Senior Dogs at IndyHumane Getting Grant For Their Golden Years
The Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Gives a New Leash on Life to Local Dogs
Old dogs have something to wag about this summer, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants. IndyHumane is one of 77 animal welfare groups chosen from 266 applicants to receive a grant to help local senior dogs. The winning groups received more than $616,000 in grants to help save or improve the lives of at-risk old dogs in their communities.
“This grant will help us give senior dogs the veterinary and dental care they need to be ready to go to their forever home,” said David Horth, CEO of IndyHumane. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.”
Over the past 13 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided more than $3.1 million in grants to support its vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”
“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like IndyHumane make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” Grey Muzzle’s Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer said. “Many senior dogs in central Indiana are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of IndyHumane.”
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.”
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 nonprofit groups nationwide. For details, please visit www.greymuzzle.org
