Baltimore Humane Society: Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
A Dogs Playing for Life mentorship.
Due to turnover in our organization, many of our staff did not have the confidence to run playgroups without a trainer being present. The program provided that confidence to another staff member, who is now able to run the groups and educate other staffers and volunteers how to successfully run playgroups.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Bishop (first photo) is one of our oldest and longest-term residents at the shelter. Living in a shelter has been particularly stressful for this poor dog. However, since we’ve been able to implement more playgroups, Bishop is now much less stressed and has become one of our playgroup rock stars! He’s paying it forward by teaching many of the younger pups appropriate play behavior.
