Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS): Mohawk Operation Grant

What was the money or product used for?

This generous Mohawk Flooring Operation grant of $1,000 was used to purchase 950 “Training Your Adopted Dog” DVDs (one of the DVD sponsors is Petfinder.com) to be given out in our dog-adoption packets to new dog adopters.

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

So many of the pet adopters at BARCS are first-time pet parents. We had been giving these DVDS out, but ran out of them. This grant enabled us to purchase almost 1,000 more and we’ve found them to be so helpful once the family gets their new dog home, especially for those that never had a dog before. The DVD covers: Crate Training, House Training, Destructive Chewing, Jumping, Mouthing, and Fun Tricks and Obedience. Our pet parents have told us over and over how helpful this wonderful DVD has been in training their new pup.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant will help 950 dogs as they leave for their forever homes.

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

Tenzo was just a bundle of energy when Animal Control brought him to BARCS as a stray. He’s a love bug and was hoping to find someone to shower with licks and kisses and someone who had as much energy as he does. In came Kaitlin, an avid jogger and outdoorswoman who fell head over heels in love with Tenzo. This is her first dog as an adult and she says she watched the DVD over and over so she could properly get Tenzo’s energy harnessed and that he would listen to her commands when outdoors so everyone stays safe and has a great time. The photos below tell it all!
