Humane Society of Northeast Georgia: Dog Field Trip/Short-Term Fostering Grant Report

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

The grant money was used to purchase products for our ExPAWditions/Field Trip program. We purchased: 27 Mendota slip leads, four Adopt Me leashes, five Adopt Me collars, two seatbelt harnesses, one four-pack of Adopt Me leash sleeves, three reflective harnesses, six Passport harnesses (S,M,L), and 10 large reusable bags.

The grant helped our organization buy necessary supplies so our dogs can safely go out in public on field trips. We purchased highly visible Adopt Me items to make the rescues stand out when out of the shelter.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Jolene (first photo) went on her first field trip about six weeks ago. She spent the day on the Pooch Pontoon relaxing. She was adopted soon after, but returned for being “mouthy.” She went on her second field trip last week with a local news crew who are doing a story about our field-trip program. We are hoping that the news story will find her future owner! Meet Jolene here.

Buzz was adopted the day of his first field trip — a hike in a local park. Sadly, he was returned a month a later. Buzz went on another field trip with a staff member last week. They went on a car ride that ended with a trip to Starbucks (second photo). Hopefully his second trip will have as much success! Meet Buzz here.

Rudey (third photo) went on a field trip 10 days ago. He spent his day splashing in the water and catching sticks in the waves. He was adopted an hour after he returned.

Charles Barkley (fourth photo) was a staff and volunteer favorite. He spent the day on the lake. He enjoyed snoozing in the sun on his own private island. Charles was adopted shortly after his field trip.

Lacey went on the Pooch Pontoon for a cruise on Lake Lanier (fifth photo). She went back to the volunteer’s home for a spa day after her cruise (sixth photo). Lacey was so relaxed from her day trip that she was adopted two days later.
