Michigan Dog on Hospice

Three years ago, Kim Skarritt created Silver Muzzle Cottage in Elk Rapids, Michigan. Silver Muzzle is a rescue and hospice care center for homeless senior dogs. Its aim is to rescue older dogs from shelters and place them with forever homes, but it also provides a homey environment for ailing dogs to live out their last days free of cages and full of happiness.

Skarritt was motivated to start helping dogs after hearing story upon story of dogs being neglected once reaching old age and suddenly needing extra care. Many of the dogs Silver Muzzle Cottage takes in were given up because of health problems and expensive vet bills or were left homeless after their owners passed away.

Did you know that the law considers pets to be tangible personal property? You can plan for your pet’s future in a will, or you can set up a trust arranging for the care of your pet. Choose a friend or relative who would be willing to take your pet in, or if you are not sure that any of your friends or family would be suitable for your pet, you can designate a charitable organization to care for your pet and prevent their potential homelessness.
