Thank you, Grey Muzzle Organization!

One Tail at a Time senior dogs grey muzzle organization

One Tail at a Time was one of 62 animal welfare groups chosen from 240 applicants to receive a grant to help local senior dogs. The groups received a total of nearly $419,000 in grants to help save or improve the lives of at-risk old dogs in communities nationwide!

Here at One Tail, our grant award will be specifically used to care for senior dogs being rescued from Chicago’s two largest open access shelters. At busy shelters like this, senior dogs with their compromised immune systems are at a high-risk of getting sick and getting sick fast. We are so grateful to be lending more of these old pals a hand thanks to the Grey Muzzle Organization’s support.

In the past 11 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided almost $2 million in grants to support its vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.” 

The national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide. For details, please visit
