Animal Ark Rescue: Play Yard Renovation Grant Report

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

We used the grant to rebuild our play yard fences. They were originally 4-ft. chain link; now they are 6-ft. chain link.

Many of the dogs were able to jump or climb over the 4-ft. fences. Now that the fences are taller, we can focus more on letting the dogs play safely instead of chasing them around the shelter or down the busy main road nearby.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Gibbs is a teenage dog who loves to play! He is very smart and agile and could easily jump the 4-ft. fences. We had to place Gibbs on a playgroup time-out for almost a month until we had the taller fences installed, because he would run away every day! Now Gibbs is happy as can be and loves daily playgroup! He is still looking for a forever home, but he is much happier now that he gets to socialize and exercise daily. Meet him:
