Baltimore Bully Crew, Inc.: Grant Report

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

We received 10 Thundershirts to use on dogs in our rescue. They will be used for variety of "issues" along the way.

Thundershirts are a crucial part in helping some of the dogs who come into our rescue. Bully breeds tend to have higher anxiety and can be helped so much by Thundershirts. By receiving this donation, we are able to use funds otherwise spent on these for dogs' care and enrichment.

How many pets did this grant help?

So far, just one, but it will help more as dogs come into the rescue. Most of the dogs we had when we received the Thundershirts have been with us for a while and could not benefit from these. But new dogs certainly will.

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

Ruger came to use as an abuse case. He is a very nervous dog and not a fan of being left alone. I used the Thundershirt to help Ruger deal with his crate- and separation-anxiety issues. It helped enable him to feel a little bit more snug and secure in the crate when he was left alone. Ruger was just adopted and his new owners got him a Thundershirt after hearing about the benefits of it through the foster parent.
