Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter: Disaster Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We purchased sixty 60-ft ground-runner trolleys for pet owners in our communities who are struggling to keep their dogs restrained due to the impact of Hurricane Ida on their fencing and their homes.
This grant helped to keep pets at home with their people instead of in the shelter. Our community is still reeling from the affects of the major storm and these funds went to keep pets safe at home and out of the shelter.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Many pets were helped by these funds. We found that so many people were incredibly grateful for the resources we gave them following the storm. When our field team arrived at a location in which a dog was reported running loose, we were able to supply one of the 60′ ground runners to the owner to help them properly restrain their dog. They were so happy that we were there to offer solutions to one of the many problems they were facing following the hurricane.
