The Kauai Humane Society: Dog Field Trip/Short-Term Fostering Grant Report

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

We are currently working with Rescue Strong to purchase backpacks for our Shelter Dogs on Field Trips Program. We have the design created and the order placed, but with the onset of COVID-19, they have not been able to complete our order as of May 4, 2020, due to stay-at-home orders.

Once the stay-at-home orders are lifted, we hope to get the backpacks to our shelter as soon as possible. The state of Hawaii might not see visitors/tourists to our islands for many months, so at the moment, we are unable to resume our field-trip program. Once the program can start again, it will have a whole new look with new custom vests and backpacks.

How many pets did this grant help?

It will help up to 200 per year.

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

We are currently unable to run the program, but can update once it resumes. Attached is a photo of a completed backpack.
