PHOENIX — The Arizona Humane Society on Tuesday was one of the recipients of a $10,000 grant to ensure senior dogs receive proper veterinary care.

The Grey Muzzle Organization, a nonprofit organization, has given out $705,000 in grants to 78 animal welfare groups over 344 applicants in the United States and Canada working to save and improve the lives of senior dogs.

“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like the Arizona Humane Society make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” Grey Muzzle Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer said in a release.

“Many senior dogs in the Valley are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of AHS.”

Grey Muzzle Organization has provided more than $3.8 million in grants over the last 14 years with the vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid” as the current adoption rate for dogs ages seven and older is lower than 50%.
