Senior dogs at OAHS fetch grant from Grey Muzzle

Old dogs have something to wag about, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants, and dogs at Oshkosh Area Humane Society are among the winners.

Oshkosh Area Humane Society 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 at-risk old dogs in their communities.

“This grant will help us give senior dogs like 9-year-old Ava and 10-year old Copper the veterinary and dental care he needs so they’ll be ready to go to his forever home,” said OAHS Executive Director Joni Geiger. “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 Oshkosh Area 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 in the Oshkosh community are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of OAHS.”
