Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue & Adoption, Inc.: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used to funds to help purchase Halo harnesses and vibration collars to assist with training and improve the adoptability of visually- and hearing-impaired dogs. The harnesses and collars will go with the dogs to their new homes.
By being able to provide the adaptive equipment for the impaired dogs, we were able to promote them in a positive way. It helped us to find adopters who are interested in adopting dogs with disabilities.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We rescued Baily in July of 2020. She was visually impaired and we knew it would take a special person to adopt her. We knew that the perfect person was out there, but we needed to make the connection. Our employee took the Petfinder.com Adoption Options marketing webinar and it helped us to re-frame the way that we could promote an impaired animal. By being able to provide the adaptive equipment and basic training to the adopter, we found Baily’s forever home! Our trainer is always available to help answer any questions and concerns that may come up after adoption.
