This grant was used to send Shelter Manager Christa Brown to the Dogs Playing for Life mentorship from May 21-24 at Longmont Humane Society.
This grant trained our shelter manager in how to conduct large dog playgroups safely. This grant will allow MCPAWS to conduct large dog playgroups and provide more enrichment for the dogs in our care. Our shelter manager is training volunteers and staff members with the valuable information she learned during her mentorship.
Nearly 300 dogs each year who come through our doors!
Before the mentorship at Dogs Playing for Life (DPFL), Niko had no friends and was very dog-reactive. We were very concerned his dog reactivity was not going to go away. After DPFL and with the tools that Christa learned and was able to implement, Niko now has a play friend and his dog reactivity has been reduced! We are beyond excited for Niko and so thankful for this opportunity. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation! Meet him: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/40531857
