SPCA of Brevard: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

We purchased heavy-duty enrichment toys for our dogs to have in their kennels. They are different shapes, sizes, and colors. We wanted to provide safe chew toys to help with kennel stress and boredom.

The grant provided us with the means to make a large purchase of these toys so that we had at least one for each dog. Being able to make this large purchase will make it much easier, financially, to purchase more, a little at a time. Our goal with this grant was to be able to purchase enough for every dog -- and we did!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

For Ole Blue (first photo), toys are life! He loves all toys, and loves them even more when you play fetch with them. He might not be a spring chicken, but you’d never know it with as much as he likes to play! Give him toys and put him in the pool and he is the happiest dude around.

(As I write this, he is in a meet-and-greet with a potential adopter.)
