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

What was the money or product used for?

The grant money was used to purchase Roll Over chew treats, bully sticks & twists.

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

The foster dogs in our care have rotating play-yard privileges (with dogs of similar size and personality) and while they wait their turn to go outside to play, we like to give them something to chew on. The act of chewing provides stress relief for these highly active and energetic dogs. It provides them an allowable outlet other than chewing or destroying things they shouldn’t.

How many pets did this grant help?

More than 30 dogs over several weeks.

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

In the time that we had these chews, we had five dogs adopted (pictured from top to bottom): Chewy, Sadie, Maui, Jack and Roxy. Sadly, we have run out of the chews and still have many more dogs looking for forever homes.
