The Good Shepherd Humane Society, Inc.: Dog Field Trip/Short-Term Fostering Grant Report

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

This grant was used to help implement and promote our field-trip program.

The field trips provide important enrichment for the dogs and also give us valuable behavioral insight. Field trips have also led to adoptions.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Ralph has been a longer-term resident and we were told he was “unwalkable and could not be around other dogs.” Our field-trip program has helped Ralph get out of our facility and into the real world. There we have found he is much more walkable and friendly than we were led to believe. Ralph is still looking for a home, but he has a much better chance of being placed now! You can meet Ralph here.
