Welcome to Gray Mutts Rescue and Sanctuary

***FEATURED PET***

Chester

Chester is an amazing boy!! From his foster: Chester is an adorable, 3 year old goofball. I have fostered quite a few dogs and he is by far the most intelligent. He is half shepherd/half beagle and is every ounce of both. He is as athletic and coordinated as any shepherd, but in a fun sized beagle package. Chester is always happy to see me, and sometimes we sit outside and just hang out. He is a hair skittish of big men in hats at first (hes a rescue) but he warms right up after a bit of time.


He runs around all day outside and plays with our dogs. He loves balls and sticks. He also likes exploring. He is very athletic, so a fence is necessary for a dog like him. When we took him to Dogtopia, they mixed him in with every other dog, and they said they he was lovely.


We have been crate training him for three months, and he is taking to it. He has never pottied within the home or his crate and is crazy soft when he has his full coat. He is vaccinated, neutered, and currently on trifexis. Why deal with house training a puppy when the hard part is done! :D

About Us

Why we do what we do

In 2011, our founder adopted a senior Boston Terrier from a municipal shelter. She had a little over two wonderful years with him before he passed.  In that time, she became aware of the need for homes for senior pets in shelters.  Everyone wants the cute little puppy, but older dogs are overlooked. It's our purpose to show just what treasures the seniors can be.

Changing their luck

Our mission is simple: to save dogs in need of homes. We rescue all breeds and ages, but our focus remains on the senior dogs. No dog should die in a shelter, and the oldsters that need a soft place to retire will find that here.

Our featured pet!

Our featured pet  is Clyde!! He is a sweet, loving energetic boy who will be sure to bring happiness and laughs to your family!  He has lots of energy so he's looking for an active family who will be able to keep up with him.  Although he's a big boy he thinks he's a lap dog so get ready for some big cuddles! He would do best in a house with no small children since he doesn't realize his weight and is still learning excited jumps aren't allowed.  Hes a 2 year old, 55 pound mountain dog/lab mix!

Chester

  Chester is an adorable, 3 year old dog. I have fostered quite a few dogs and he is by far the most intelligent.  He is half shepherd/half beagle and is every ounce of both.   He is as athletic and coordinated as any shepherd, but in a fun sized beagle package.    Chester is always happy to see me, and sometimes we sit outside and just hang out. He does bark at squirrels, full disclosure, but I do think he's getting better about not barking. I believe he just needs some work and training.   His history is that as a pup he was adopted to a home, the owners accidentally hit him with their car, and then left him. The humane society called them and told them they had their dog, and the owners came and got him. A few years later, he seemed to have escaped and made it back to the humane society. This time when the owners were called, no one answered.    He does not let that slow him down. He runs around all day outside and plays with our dogs. He is a hair bit food possessive, but once again, no one has ever really worked with him here. I think he would get over that too with a bit of training.  He loves balls and sticks. He likes barking at squirrels. He also likes exploring. He is very athletic, so a fence is necessary for a dog like him.     When we took him to Dogtopia, they mixed him in with every other dog, and they said they he was lovely. Which makes sense, he loves dogs more than people. He likes HIS people but mostly would prefer to hang out with other dogs or by himself. After a week or so, he started to warm up to me. He does not seem to be scared of men like you see with other rescue dogs.    We have been crate training him for a month and a half, and he is taking to it. He has never pottied within the home or his crate and is crazy soft when he has his full coat.   He is vaccinated, neutered, and currently on trifexis. 

Patches

Patches is sweet 1.5 year old mini Aussie. She's housebroken, loves to cuddle, and is the prett little thing ever! Patches is spayed, chipped and on hw prevention. 

Stella--adoption pending

 Stella loves kids and other dogs, although she takes time to warm up, once she's comfortable, she's loving and loyal. Stella is picky about people at first, but once she trusts you, and knows she's safe, she becomes a totally different dog. We saw this the moment we picked her up from shelter as she is the poster dog for before and after pics. She loves her crate at night and obediently rests in it when the door is left open. She is potty trained and goes on puppy pads if available and stands by the door to let you know she needs to go. Stella is a lover and wants to be with you...never leaving your side. She loves car rides and hikes in the park. She adores attention. She listens to commands but often confuses "stand" for "sit" because she does try to walk like a human and do tricks for you. Stella is an indoor and outdoor dog, but needs a privacy fence so she doesn't jump...this girl could win the Dog Olympics for jumping if it existed!

Apple Jax

Hi, I'm Apple Jax (Jax or Jack Jack), and I'm a fully vetted one year old dynamo! I'm a curious and happy boy who will work and also go to my crate just for a little extra kibble.  Little dogs, big dogs, I'm curious of them all.  I get a little scared of big dogs but if you're with me and gently introduce me I sure do like to play.   Come meet this dapper little sweet man!

Rico

Rico hasn't had the best life.  A witness saw him and his buddy Murphy both being thrown into an area lake in a plastic bag. Thankfully they managed to escape and swam to the bank where they were rescued.  Rico is currently undergoing hw treatment in his loving foster home.  More info on his personality soon! 

Winston--special needs

Winston is a special guy! Winston is a six year old shih tzu mix. He is sweet as pie and will be ultra handsome when he gets a good grooming, but Winston has vision problems. I believe he can see some, but he does have limited sight. He loves being close to his people and gets along with other dogs, too. 

Coming soon

Finnegan

Finnegan is a 37 pound Boston mix.  Heavy on the mix!  He's a delightful guy, but is a tad shy. His foster home is teaching  him to trust! Look at those gorgeous eyes!!!


Marty

Marty is a 10 month old chihuahua pulled from an urgents list simply due to the fact that he had an easily treated skin condition.  Marty loves all other dogs big and small, and loves to give kisses! Look at that sweet little face! 

Shayne--special needs

Shayne is a 14 year old owner surrender. But don't let her age fool you! She is a little love muffin that has lots of love to give!  She is heartworm positive, and sadly also has kidney stones.  She will be on a special diet and receiving care for both issues. We do need sponsors for her care. paypal.me/graymuttsrescue/25


Cactus Jack-medical hold -sponsor needed

Cactus Jack is loving 5 year old chihuahua that was down on his luck in a local shelter. He has hair loss due to a massive flea infestation. With good food, good love and some cleaner living he'll be good as new! He could really use a sponsir to help with his vetting!
