Idea: Give Compassion to Homeless Senior Dogs
The Grey Muzzle Foundation is working hard to create more happy tails for homeless senior dogs this #GivingTuesday. Here are a few ways you can help.
Dogs of Every Age Deserve Loving Care
I’m supporting their “Hospice Care for Homeless Senior Dogs” fund to help dogs that are too sick or fragile to be adopted get out of shelters to live their final days with dignity and love.
Sadly, senior dogs are often abandoned in shelters at this stage of their life, left to die alone and afraid.
Soft Beds for Sweet Faces
Senior bones can be achy and resting on the hard, concrete shelter floor helps seniors sleep better — and can give them a better chance at finding a forever family by helping their mobility.
You can provide a bed here.
Safe, Warm, Home
Senior dogs are less likely to be adopted, yet they deserve the chance to live out their golden years, months or weeks in a place of love, security and peace. Grey Muzzle provides funding and resources to nonprofit shelters, rescues and sanctuaries nationwide to make sure no no old dog dies alone and afraid.
Donations made today through this donation page are eligible for matching funds from Network for Good.

You can help even more by spreading the word. Get shareable graphics, “copy and paste” tweets, Facebook updates and more with the Grey Muzzle #GivingTuesday Toolkit.
We believe old dogs contribute positively to our quality of life and have much to teach us about patience, respect, responsibility, loyalty and unconditional love.”
