The Berks ARL’s Grey Muzzle Foster Program

Do you love older pets or ones with special needs? The Berks ARL’s Grey Muzzle program needs you! The ARL is always looking for foster homes who would be willing to provide temporary care for older or special needs pets while they look for their forever homes. How does it work? • The ARL pays for vet care, you only need to provide food and toys (and love of course!) • The ARL will do a home visit and check vet references to ensure that the pet is going into a good environment. • If you have one or more dogs, they must visit the ARL’s shelter to meet a foster dog to ensure that they will get along. And your pets must be up-to-date on vaccines and have current licenses. • Foster homes must have their own transportation, commit to providing the pet with proper vet care and adequate exercise, and can bring the pet to the shelter when necessary to meet potential adopters. If you are interested in volunteering as a foster parent, please download and fill out a foster application: http://www.berksarl.org/Foster%20application%202013.pdf You can mail, fax, or stop in the shelter to drop off your application. Upon review, you will have a one-on-one interview with their foster coordinator to ensure your home and circumstances are appropriate for fostering. Thank you for considering being a foster parent with Gray Muzzle. If you have any more questions, please email MTocker@berksarl.org or call (610) 373-8830 extension 119.

There are 2 Stevie Wonders: A musical genius and a dog available for adoption through Grey Muzzle!

I would like to introduce myself. I am a distinguished older gentleman who is at least 10 years old. My name is Stevie Wonder. I am neutered and I have clean teeth. Well, the few I have left are clean! I am sight impaired, but that doesn’t stop me. I like to be petted and sleep in my little bed. My favorite activity is relaxing. I would be a good companion for an older person or someone with a quiet home. I know I can’t see, but I deserve a home just as much as everyone else! No small kids for me!

We LOVE Grey Muzzle!

As a 7-year-old, Chancey was brought to the shelter in terrible condition. She had not been groomed for a very long time so her coat was matted all over and her nails were so long that they grew into her pads. Chancey had skin, eye and ear infections, and a thyroid condition. She went into an amazing foster home through the ARL’s Grey Muzzle program and was treated for all of her health conditions. Because her skin condition was so severe, her brow drooped over her eyes – so she is scheduled to have a brow lift! Chancey found a forever home this week!
