November 2020: #AdoptedASeniorDog contest

In celebration of Adopt a Senior Pet Month this November, The Grey Muzzle Organization asks everyone who adores an old dog to share why they #AdoptedASeniorDog on social media to help inspire others to adopt an old dog to be their devoted friend during times of quarantine and beyond. Share the endearing qualities that make your senior dog shine by entering Grey Muzzle’s online contest. Simply post a photo and brief comments on your choice of social media and in the comments section of The Grey Muzzle Organization’s Facebook page with the hashtag #AdoptedASeniorDog. You and your dog could be chosen as one of the Top 10 posts to appear on Grey Muzzle’s website and win prizes. And just by sharing your story, you’ll be helping senior dogs who are waiting in shelters win the best prize of all:  a forever home.  Check out the contest rules and details at greymuzzle.org. In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month, The Grey Muzzle Organization is also releasing the results of a groundbreaking national study to examine efforts to promote the well-being of senior dogs and identify lifesaving strategies. This study was made possible by a generous grant from Maddie’s Fund.
