Grant Money Will be used to Improve the Lives of At-Risk Dogs in Our Communities
BOSTON, Aug. 11, 2021 – The MSPCA-Angell announced today that it is one of 77 animal welfare organizations selected—from 266 applicants—to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help save or improve the lives of at-risk dogs in their communities.
“This grant will help us provide veterinary assistance to senior dogs, like 11-year-old Nelly, so she can stay with her family and receive the medical treatment she needs,” said MSPCA-Angell Assistant Director of Adoption Centers and Programs, Bryn Rogers.
“Thanks to support from The Grey Muzzle Organization, instead of seeing Nelly in our surrender lobby, we were able to have her treated at our Cape Cod Clinic, where she underwent surgery for an infected uterus before returning home to her loving mom. Nelly had lots of snuggles waiting for her, and Nelly’s mom was beyond grateful to be able to get care for her best friend,” said Rogers.
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 the MSPCA-Angell 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 New England are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of the MSPCA.”
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.
