Senior Paws Program

Dexter is our spoke's dog for Dexter's Amici Grigi Project.

Working tirelessly to provide help to homeless and injured animals since 1979, the Humane Society of Charles County (HSCC) offers animal sheltering, adoption, low-cost spay and neuter, and vaccination services as well as humane education and outreach to the community of Southern Maryland.  HSCC partners with many local rescues, foster families, and community groups to both support and expand their capacity to save more animals and ultimately find them loving, adoptive homes. 

How we help:  The Grey Muzzle Organization Grant will enable the Humane Society of Charles County to enroll 120 senior dogs into our Senior Paws Program, which develops a comprehensive Senior Profile. This provides a diagnostic evaluation that gives a potential adopter a better picture of the dog’s current health, as well as identifying immediate issues that need to be addressed before a senior dog goes home, such as dental treatments, minor surgery, and more.

Dexter's Amici Grigi Project (Dexter's Grey Friends Project) was created to support the Senior Paws Program and provide ongoing funding for senior dogs cared for by the Humane Society of Charles County.  The JES Avanti Foundation generously agreed to contribute to Dexter's Amici Grigi Project, donating additional funds for senior dog care as well as much-needed veterinary equipment, enabling our team to treat senior dogs on site.  They also donated a new dental machine, an ultrasound machine, and a tonometer to detect glaucoma. 


Dexter's Amici Grigi Funding:

  • Diagnostic tests to identify medical concerns and initiate a care plan
  • Dental treatments to help remove any painful dental issues and help prevent further decay
  • Medications to help keep their bodies working at their best
  • Foster supplies allow extra care and emotional support
  • Special dietary food for those who need additional soft food, low-allergen, or other more individualized diets for their aging bodies

Every time you give to Dexter's Amici Grigi Fund, you give a second chance to a senior pet, and most importantly, you give hope. If you would like to help your donation go further, consider making a monthly contribution of an amount that makes sense for your family. Recurring donations help us to better plan for the animals that we take into our care.
