Grey Muzzle Rescue was started by Thayne and Christine Hamilton over 10 years ago. They rescued more than 20 dogs who, were it not for their love and commitment would have died due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. Their selflessness and sacrifices, as often happens to those who give so much, went unnoticed and unappreciated by the world around them.
But thanks to ‘Talk It Up TV’, who began what they call their “Life Improvement Project” and a contest, “What would you do with $1000”, that has changed dramatically. Unbeknownst to Thayne, his submission for what he would do with the money touched the hearts and souls of the panel.
Thayne and Christine rescued what they called the ‘worst of the worst’ cases of neglected and abused animals. Not long ago Christine passed away and Thayne has been working tirelessly to keep the Rescue going and struggling to provide for the nine dogs now in his care. Finding the resources needed to continue rescuing other animals in need is proving to be an almost overwhelming challenge for the Grey Muzzle Rescue.
Dogs like Tom Drooley who was abandoned at 15 years old at a kill shelter, and Lilly, who spent 14 years of her life being chained to a slab and not given the nutritious or adequate amount of food she needed. Lilly was in such bad shape, that even today she can barely walk and Thayne has to lift her into a wheel barrel and push her around. “We call this Driving Miss Lilly” he said.
Thayne received the surprise of his life when two of his friends showed up for what he thought was a visit. The host of Talk It Up TV, Anny Havland arrived instead. He presented him with the winning check of $1000. Seeing the surprise and ecstatic joy on Thayne’s face as he realizes what just happened will bring a tear to your eye!
But winning the $1000 was just the beginning. After spending some time at the rescue, bonding with the nine dogs currently living on the five acres and hearing the story of how Thayne and Christine began, Havland realized the $1000 was just not enough.
So she sets out to enlist the help of local businesses and the legal help from an attorney.
