Alberta (AB) Herding Dog Rescue: Orvis Animal Care Grant

What was the money or product used for?

The grant for $472.72 was used to purchase RollOver chew treats such as cow hooves, tendon chews and tripe chews.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Many of the rescues are kenneled during the day until their playgroup is scheduled for outside yard time. To keep them busy and occupied while they wait, the chew treats give them something to do while they wait for their turn.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Not all of the pets who have benefited from the Orvis grant have been adopted yet. However, we have had at least three adoptions since receiving the grant and there are six dogs currently on their trial adoptions. The dogs still in rescue are still enjoying some of the more lasting chews (cow hooves) while they wait for their new families.
