Animal Rescue of the Rockies: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

We bought beds, blankets and toys for dogs who are in foster care, awaiting their forever homes. If these dogs can be more comfortable and more happy while in foster care, we hope they can get adopted faster.

This grant enabled us to provide enrichment to these dogs without taking money away from medical care such as spay/neuter and vaccinations. The enrichment toys kept the dogs stimulated. The beds and blankets are comfy and soft. The dogs enjoy their stay in foster care!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

One of our older dogs, Bert, was provided a heated memory-foam bed so that his old bones could be comfy and warm. He really enjoyed this bed prior to his adoption. It’s possible that his smiling face enabled him to get adopted by a wonderful new family.
