Big Move for Grey Muzzle Manor Sanctuary
Grey Muzzle Manor Sanctuary moved to a 45-acre location at 1164 Blattadahl Road, in Mohrsville, which will enable the nonprofit organization to operate at full potential. Founded upon acceptance, non-judgement and presence, services include senior and special-needs dog rescue, hospice and adoption, as well as community outreach designed to help families and pets stay together, with the goal of preserving the human-animal bond and allowing families to not have to make a permanent decision for a temporary problem. Their SAFER (support for families enabling recovery) Program provides foster care for pets belonging to individuals who are seeking or undergoing inpatient mental health, drug or alcohol treatment, escaping domestic violence, temporary homelessness and more, with the goal of reunification.
