Canine Castaways, Inc.: Purina & Amazon Treats for the Holidays Grant Report

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

Purina Beggin' Strips dog treats were given to our foster homes to give to their foster dogs. We also gave a bag out with adoptions.

It made our foster homes and dogs happy to have these treats available. We also used the treats when taking photos for Petfinder. The dogs were very responsive to the treats and we got some great photos as a result!

How many pets did this grant help?

All of the dogs in our care: approximately 75, but it is still helping, so the number grows.

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

Monty is a tiny 4-lb. Chihuahua who is still waiting for his forever home. By using the Beggin’ Littles as a reward during his photo shoot, we got some great photos of him. These photos have gotten lots of attention already and he will have his new home very soon as a result!! Meet Monty:
