Mission Statement

To provide the means so that abandoned senior dogs will not have to live out their lives alone in an animal shelter cage.

Description

Each year thousands of senior dogs end up in animal shelters. Due to their age, and often age-related ailments, most do not get adopted.

After years as a dedicated companion, their final years, months, weeks, or days are a lonely existence in a shelter cage. For senior dogs who are no longer of use in laboratories or as breeding stock in puppy mills, their fate is even worse.

Programs dedicated specifically to senior dogs are the ones most effective at finding new homes for them. The greatest need these programs have is financial. That is why the White Muzzle Fund was established.

The organization is building an endowment to provide a permanent source of funding for existing senior dog rescue programs, as well as resources for organiztions to start and run new programs where none exist.

In addition to funding, the White Muzzle Fund is working to develop best practice models; an online resource library on topics relating to senior dog rescue, adoption, foster care, and ownership; as well as developing recruiting initiatives to increase the number of foster homes and adopters for senior dogs.
