SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Anything is paw-sible as local senior pups receive a life-saving grant.
Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo is one of 90 animal welfare groups to receive a grant towards saving local senior dogs.
The non-profit received $7,500 of the $848,000 total grant money from the Grey Muzzle Organization. The $7,500 will help 18 senior dogs receive pre-adoption veterinary care.
The Grey Muzzle Organization's mission is to create "a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid."
13-year-old Holly is a Bichon Frisé senior pup at the Woods Humane Society. She came in to the shelter with stage-two kidney disease and severe dental disease. Support from grants and donations helped Woods Humane Society start her in a prescription diet to stabilize her kidneys, perform a dental cleaning, and extract nine of her teeth. Not only has her medical care helped create a life with less pain, but also increased her chances of finding a furever home.
