Pu’unene, HI – Old dogs have something to wag about this summer, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants, and dogs at Maui Humane Society are among the winners. MHS has received $10,000 specifically to help the medical and dental needs of senior dogs.

“This grant helps us give senior dogs like 9-year-old Cody the veterinary and dental care he needs so he’s ready to go to his forever home,” said Jenny Miller of Maui Humane Society. “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 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 Maui 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 on Maui are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of Maui Humane Society.”
