Noah's Animal Refuge Centre: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

Noah's Animal Refuge rescued a beautiful little German shorthaired pointer pup who was found on the side of the road. He was emaciated, had demodex mange, eye infections, and a hernia. His vet bill was $404 to get him back to health and ready for adoption. We also have a rescue horse who needed help; her bill was $140. We also purchased a retractable sign for $135 in order to bring attention to our animals at adoption events, 2,000 nice tri-fold brochures for $265 that tell our story, business cards, magnets and a banner for $70.

Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation's Orvis Operation Grant, we were able to help the animals in our care in multiple ways.

A good Samaritan found a poor 6-month-old German shorthaired pointer-mix pup on the side of the road. We named him Toby. This baby was very sick, had mange, eye infections, and a hernia. With your help, we were able to get him the care he needed He is now a happy, healthy boy, and is ready for adoption!

We also rescued a very emaciated horse named Darby. Your funding helped us pay for her testing and care to get her back on track. Luckily, Darby's tests were all great and she is now in foster care living on 20 acres of beautiful grassland, and is fattened up and living a happy, healthy life.

By assisting us to purchase some of our promotional materials, it will allow us to get the word out about Noah's Animal Refuge and promote our facility, thus assisting us in adopting more animals. THANK YOU!!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

A cry for help came across our page for a poor sick baby who was found on the side of the road. Toby had been severely neglected and had multiple health issues. We agreed to take him in without a second thought, and soon found out how much care he would need. He spent several days at the vet’s office, needing multiple medications for eye infections, skin infections and, when he was healthy enough, neutering and hernia surgery. Toby is so thankful and is now happy and healthy waiting for his forever home.
