Cheaha Regional Humane Society: Bissell Rescue U Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Fencing to create 29 new kennels for the adolescent and medium-size dogs.
We had 10x10 kennels in a space in the back where we could keep the adolescent puppies or medium-size dogs. We had divided these into two sections, but they were old and the gauge of wiring was not good (second photo) and the dogs continually got out. This grant enabled us to get some real stand-alone kennels in these areas (first photo). The dogs are no longer able to chew through the wiring or push through and hurt themselves.
How many pets did this grant help?
We were able to build 29 kennels and this can help aproximately 40 dogs.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Lucy was a younger, medium-size brown dog in the temporary kennels in the back area. She continually went from one kennel to another and got a deep cut in her leg. We treated the wound but, because she kept escaping through the wires, it would not heal. Once we were able to get her in a new kennel, her cut healed and she was ready to go. She went to a great forever home.
