Children Helping Old Dogs, Grey Muzzle Organization


Kids from Discovery Elementary School making a difference and you can too

Meet some especially caring kids who not only love their own dogs, but also have a special place in their hearts for homeless old dogs. For the third year consecutive year, these compassionate kids raised money to make life sweeter for at-risk senior dogs helped through non-profit Grey Muzzle Organization grants.

Third graders in Ms. Swanson’s class at Discovery Elementary School put their love into action by donating $695 to help senior dogs they’ve never even met. What a nice Valentine!

Please join this new generation of senior dog-lovers by making a gift in honor of a special old dog.  The Grey Muzzle Organization the three-day Discovery Challenge to match the children’s donation. The Grey Muzzle Organization supports care in shelters and fostering and adoption of senior dogs. These senior dogs have done nothing wrong. Some have been given up because of a medical issue or because their person died or just given up sadly because the pup got old – that really does happen. Yet, these dogs are the least likely to be adopted because they are older. I understand why people want puppies or young dogs, but this is such a sad ending for too many dogs. And Grey Muzzle exists to change that.

Why did these children decide to donate to The Grey Muzzle Organization? One of the boys, Mason, said, “I feel like I helped old dogs everywhere a little bit. Dogs are special and we shouldn’t ever let them go.” How can any of us be more eloquent?
