Older dogs have something to wag about as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces recipients of its annual grants, totaling $705,000, and dogs at IndyHumane are among the winners.

IndyHumane is one of 78 animal welfare groups chosen from 344 applicants to receive a grant to help local senior dogs. This generous gift will help IndyHumane provide medical and dental care to approximately 25 senior dogs to ensure that they can become adoption-ready and find loving homes.

“This grant will help us give senior dogs like 15-year-old Millie the veterinary and dental care she needs so he’ll be ready to go to her forever home,” said Donna Casamento , 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 14 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided more than $3.8 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 the Indianapolis area are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of IndyHumane.”
