Animal Ark Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant for $1,000 was used for basic health care of the dogs in our care.
Each dog who comes into our care, we give basic dog/puppy shots to ensure their health and the health of each animal in the shelter. This, at our cost, is $10 per animal. Furthermore, some dogs come to us with other medical needs, such as Demadex mange, which is curable but is a deterrent to potential adopters until the animal is healed.
How many pets did this grant help?
With your grant, over 100 dogs were cared for in our shelter.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Speckles was recently transferred to us from Animal Control with a skin condition called Demodex. This a pretty little female Catahoula leopard dog, who was about 13 weeks old, was much prettier once she was completely healed.
