Lennox's Legacy Rescue, Inc.: Grant Report

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

Building a play yard for the dogs

It has helped tremendously with the socialization of the dogs. We have so many in rescue who came from puppy mills and have never had the ability to be outside, have free play or roam.

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

Wrigley is a mill-dog rescue from an auction. He had never been outside of his kennel, never ever touched grass and was terrified to be anywhere. He now runs freely in the yard where he lives with his adopters. He left us a completely different dog than when he arrived. I do not believe we would have had a successful adoption if he had not gained the critical play skills he learned from having a yard. He learned to play nice with other dogs, and learned to walk on a leash without our having to worry about him escaping.
