Bond County Humane Society: Purina and Amazon Treats for the Holidays Grant Report

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

Provide treats to the dogs in care at the shelter

Provided treats to dogs being cared for in our dog shelter. We are a small shelter, so treats are considered a luxury. They have been very useful with training the dogs in basic obedience and good manners.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Percy (first photo) is an almost 10-year-old terrier mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owner lived in an apartment that allowed one dog. Between the owner and his girlfriend, they had two dogs, so Percy was surrendered for adoption. He is very sociable and playful but is overlooked by potential adopters because of his age. Meet Percy:

Goldie (second photo) is a 6-year-old spitz mix who was rescued from Bond County Animal Control because her time had expired and she was at risk of being euthanized. She was found as a stray behind a local restaurant trying to get food from a dumpster. All of her teeth are so worn down that initially it was thought she did not have teeth. She was extremely thin and tested positive for heartworm disease. She just completed her heartworm treatment so now she is in her six-week rest and recovery phase. When she has completed that, we will start looking for a permanent, loving home for Goldie.

Mack (third photo) is a 4-5-month-old shepherd mix who was rescued from Bond County Animal Control to keep him from being euthanized. He was found wandering on his own. He is extremely smart, playful and affectionate. He has an adoption pending. Meet Mack:
