Standing Proud Pit Bull Rescue: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Thundershirt products are used to help our dogs with anxiety.
The Thundershirts have been very helpful with overcoming the anxiety that many of our dogs come to us with. Battling separation anxiety is very important to us, as it gives a dog a better chance of finding a forever home. Also, in Arizona we experience monsoon season. The storms can get very loud, which can make many of the dogs uneasy. The Thundershirts work great for keeping them calm!

An unlimited number!
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This grant has and will continue to help many of our dogs. One in particular that has truly benefited from the Thundershirts is Zoey. Zoey came to us with extreme fear issues, which then lead to pretty bad separation anxiety. The Thundershirt was a great tool to help her maintain her confidence and remain calm in new situations. Zoey has since been adopted after she proved she was ready for her forever home! We also keep a Thundershirt in the car whenever we head to vet appointments. The Thundershirts are great for those dogs that can get a little scared at the vet’s office.
