In honor of November’s Adopt-a-Senior-Dog Month, The Grey Muzzle Organization is hosting a Virtual Old Dog Walk on November 19th for senior dogs!
You can decide what special activity you’d like to do on November 19th, in honor of an old dog. Maybe it’s a walk – real or virtual, long or short – maybe it’s a snuggle or a special treat. Then ask your friends and family to sponsor you and help at-risk senior dogs. You can be on the team as easily as taking a stroll to your computer. You don’t even need your sneakers for this event!
This easy, fun event allows anyone, even dogs who can’t walk that mile physically but are willing and able at heart, to raise funds for their kindred spirits waiting alone in shelters for a second chance at a comfortable life.
Please help senior dogs in need by participating in our Virtual Old Dog Walk today! We’ll tally the donations at the end of the day on November 19th. The total funds raised will be posted on the Grey Muzzle website in early December. The senior dog lover raising the most funds will receive a certificate suitable for framing and a Grey Muzzle t-shirt!
It’s fun, fast and EASY! Just click JOIN NOW up above and create your own fundraising page! Remember to email it to your friends, family, veterinarians, groomers and colleagues to raise much needed funds for The Grey Muzzle Organization. You can also sponsor Thomas (pictured), our Virtual Old Dog Walk mascot.

Funds raised will support Grey Muzzle’s programs such as hospice care, senior dog adoption, medical screening, and other special programs to help old dogs at animal welfare organizations across the country.
Senior dogs have a wisdom and a world view that pups and young dogs don’t have. To get to know them and experience that first hand is something that people who have rescued older dogs say is beyond measure.
Celebrate old dogs by “walking” today!

Remember, if you can’t set up your own fundraising page, you can still be on our senior dog team and cheer for our mascot, Thomas. Thomas is a Grey Muzzle grant recipient from Blind Dog Rescue. He’s about ten years old (but who’s counting?), a little deaf, partially blind, but there’s nothing wrong with his heart (literally or figuratively). He’s full of love and good with dogs, kids, and cats. So who better to represent and inspire the Grey Muzzle team? Sponsor Thomas today!
