Senior Dogs at Humane Society for Hamilton County Salvage Grant – Hamilton County Reporter
Old dogs have their fill this summer, as the Gray Muzzle Organization announces its annual grant recipients, and the Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) dogs are among the winners.
HSHC 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 old at risk dogs in their communities.
“This grant will help us give senior dogs like 11-year-old Aretha the vet care and heartworm treatment she needs to be home forever,” said Megan Davis of HSHC. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we are grateful for the support of the Gray Muzzle Organization and look forward to serving the ‘gray muzzles’ in our community.”
Over the past 13 years, the national non-profit organization Gray Muzzle has provided more than $ 3.1 million in grants to support its vision of a “world where no old dog dies alone and scared.”
“Through the generosity of our donors, we are thrilled to help deserving organizations like the Humane Society for Hamilton County make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” said Lisa Lunghofer, Executive Director of Gray Muzzle. “Many senior dogs in the Hamilton County area are enjoying their golden years in loving homes because of the wonderful work of HSHC.”
