Leading the Way for Senior Dogs
Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Award
The Sacramento SPCA is pleased to announce that we have received another grant from the Grey Muzzle Organization in support of our Pawspice program for the next year! This program covers the cost of palliative care for animals like Gina who have a terminal diagnosis but good quality of life.
Twelve-year-old Chihuahua Gina was brought to the Sacramento SPCA in June after being diagnosed with a heart condition. By paying for her medical care and medication, this program allows the Sacramento SPCA to remove the financial stress that comes with adopting a senior dog with a terminal disease.
Thanks to the Grey Muzzle organization, this sweet senior will receive all the medical treatment she needs for her heart condition so all her new forever family has to worry about is helping her have the best rest of her life.
The Sacramento SPCA is one of 78 animal welfare groups chosen from 344 applicants to receive a grant from Grey Muzzle to help local senior dogs. “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like the Sacramento SPCA 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 the greater Sacramento Region are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of the SSPCA.”
We are so grateful for the Grey Muzzle’s continued partnership and support of our senior Pawspice dogs. Gina and her new family are definitely enjoying her golden years!
