Proud Animal Lovers Shelter: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The grant award of $650 was used to purchase four large, igloo-style dog houses.

A number of our dog houses were in serious need of replacement in order to meet state regulations and to make a safe environment for our dogs. These four new dog houses have enabled us to meet both of these goals.

How many pets did this grant help?

Approximately 40 dogs

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

DeeDee (first photo) is an senior dog who likes being inside her dog house with her blanket whenever the weather turns a bit chilly. It is just to her liking. We are in the process of trying to return DeeDee to her original owner as soon as certain conditions are met, so we hope this happens very soon. In the meantime, we are happy that she has a solid, safe, dog house in which to spend her time outside. You can meet DeeDee here.
