The Pet Rescue Center: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The money was used to pay for shelter pull fees to save nine dogs in June and July ($387.81), microchipping, spay/neuter, vaccinations, medical treatment and other pre-adoption expenses.

Three of the dogs we saved have already found their forever homes.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Stitch is a young male poodle mix whom we rescued in June. He had come into the shelter as a stray and had been dyed pink. We had him groomed and cleaned up, and he quickly found a new home with a wonderful family.

Jayne is a young female Catahoula mix who was suffering from mange. She was deemed “rescue only” by the shelter. She was treated and quickly found her forever home.

Leia is a young female Jack Russell terrier mix whom we rescued in July. She also had come into the shelter as a stray. We had a volunteer event two weeks later, and a woman met her (Leia was wearing an “Adopt Me” vest) and adopted her a few days later.

Jade is a 1-2 year old Dachshund-Chihuahua mix with cherry eye. She and her kennel mate (most likely her offspring) were considered “rescue only.” We saved both of them in July and Jade will have surgery in August to repair her eye condition. Both will be spayed/micro-chipped and made available for adoption.
