The Dog Charities We Support
1. The Grey Muzzle Organization
Senior dogs hold a special place in our hearts. The Grey Muzzle Organization is the default charity that DogGoods sends donations to, in cases no other charity was specified. Senior dogs are the sweetest angels among the canine family. Grey Muzzle knows how special older dogs truly are, which is why it funds a range of senior pup programs, including those focused on the prevention of or the early intervention in diseases that would otherwise be extremely costly to treat.
The organization funds shelters, rescue groups, sanctuaries and other nonprofits across the U.S. expressly for programs designed to improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs. In fact, this year, 77 animal welfare organizations received more than $616,000 to help at-risk senior dogs nationwide and in Canada. Since 2008, Grey Muzzle has funded more than $3.1 million in grants.
The Grey Muzzle concept was inspired in part by Sassy, a senior dog (whose photo is featured here) rescued by founder Julie Dudley and her husband. Photography courtesy of The Grey Muzzle Organization.
2. AKC Canine Health Foundation
Last year was a record-breaker for the foundation, as it funded nearly $2 million in 35 new grants around the globe for studies focused on lymphoma, epilepsy and tick-borne diseases. Since 1995, the organization has awarded almost 900 research grants totaling nearly $40 million.
The AKC Canine Health Foundation has awarded grants totaling almost $40 million.
3. The Pet Fund
Founded in 2003, The Pet Fund national nonprofit funds veterinary care for those who can’t afford it. (The organization says it receives more than 200 phone calls daily from pet owners seeking assistance.) Its primary focus is helping provide nonbasic, nonemergency care for cancer, heart disease, endocrine disorders, kidney disease, cataract surgery and chronic conditions. The Pet Fund also urges owners to enroll their pets in clinical studies or trials, which may include free medication, surgery or other treatment at no cost, and keeps a running list of trials offered by veterinary colleges and teaching hospitals.
Spaying and neutering is the best solution to reducing pet homelessness by preventing unplanned litters. Spaying and neutering also leads to a healthier, longer life for your pet!
SpayToday offers high quality, caring, compassionate, and affordable spay, neuter, vaccinations and microchips to cats, dogs, and rabbits so every pet owner, animal rescue and shelter in our community can get their pets the veterinary care they need and deserve.

Did you know that:
Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year; and each year, about 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). The number of dogs and cats euthanized in U.S. shelters annually has declined from approximately 2.6 million in 2011. This decline can be partially explained by an increase in the percentage of animals adopted and an increase in the number of stray animals successfully returned to their owners.
Approximately 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year (1.6 million dogs and 1.6 million cats).
About 710,000 animals who enter shelters as strays are returned to their owners. Of those, 620,000 are dogs and only 90,000 are cats.
