Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Orvis grant was extremely useful for our organization to support the animals we had available for adoption. This included purchasing enrichment toys and treats that enabled our animals to be behaviorally healthy and find forever homes much easier!
This grant enabled us to have a record high adoption month: In June we found homes for 30 pets! Our animals were much healthier and could focus on basic training that enabled them to find homes.

Coco was a difficult dog to find a home for — he marked everything, including people! With the assistance of this grant we were able to purchase Coco a belly band and some enrichment toys that allowed us to guide Coco to better behaviors — and he even found a home where his family loves him as much as he loves them!
