Senior Dogs in Louisville Fetch Grant

The Grey Muzzle Organization Supports Kentucky Humane Society’s Efforts to Keep Senior Dogs in Their Homes

Old dogs have something to wag about, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants, and dogs at Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) are among the winners.

KHS is one of 90 animal welfare groups chosen from 370 applicants to receive a grant to help local senior dogs. The winning groups received $848,000 in grants to save or improve the lives of at-risk old dogs in their communities.

The KHS Pet Resource Services department will use their $10,000 grant to help keep senior dogs and their families together. This department provides free counseling and access to local resources to stressed pet owners.

“No senior dog should end up in an animal shelter separated from the family who loves them,” said Shelby Schulz, Pet Resources Manager. “With help from The Grey Muzzle Organization, more senior dogs in Louisville will remain healthy, happy and in their homes.”

Over the past 15 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided more than $4.6 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 the Kentucky Humane Society 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 Louisville area are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of KHS.”

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.
