What was the money or product used for?

Dog’s Playing for Life Mentorship II

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

Through this grant, our enrichment supervisor was able to tailor her skills in playgroups as well as learn new skills to help work with dogs with behavior concerns. She was able to pass along those skills to select volunteers, as well as the volunteer coordinator, so they could be utilized on the dogs and continue to be taught to new volunteers.

How many pets did this grant help?

500+

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

Gaia was a long-term resident with us. Originally arriving in April of 2018 as a stray, she was adopted and returned twice because of concerns about her with other dogs. After the DPFL Mentorship II, our enrichment supervisor was able to integrate Gaia into playgroups more and teach her basic clicker training. She was eventually able to pair her with a foster who had other dogs in her home, and after a few weeks with her, she was officially adopted!
