Pals for Paws, Inc.: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The grant paid for three dogs to obtain much-needed training, and for part of one dog's heartworm treatment. These dogs had waited a long time in bad environments for help, and the grant gave us the extra funding needed to give them a second chance.

It allowed us to give these dogs the additional help needed to make them more adoptable without having to spend our vetting monies.
