Napa County Animal Shelter: Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Grant Report

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

Mentorship for Aimee Sadler's Dogs Playing for Life training program.

Our lead person for DPFL had been bit pretty seriously in the face. This frightened some of my other volunteers and they would not assist him with playgroups. Since he went to the mentorship, we had added two more volunteers to the playgroups. We are striving to promote the playgroups in our volunteer orientation and going out to gyms and other businesses to see if we can gain some more volunteers to assist with DPFL.

How many pets did this grant help?

90 dogs since July 2018

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

At first, she was not comfortable with other dogs. We have had her in playgroups with large dogs and now we have found that her true passion is to hang out with all the little dogs, young and old. She is very kind and gentle with them, with no reactivity at all. She is a great dog. Meet her:
