A Passion For Paws Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
This money was used to purchase food and toys for dogs in our care.
Many of our rescued dogs arrive malnourished. This grant provided food to get them back to full weight and strength. The toys provide social stimulation. These dogs stand a much higher chance of being adopted and successfully transitioning into a new family.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Akira is a large young female Akita. She arrived at our Akita Ranch underweight and with dermatitis. Some vet treatment and proper food has brought her weight up and her coat is beginning to heal. Through it all she has been upbeat and joyful, and happy just to have a place to safely run around.
