Ingham County Animal Control: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Funding went to purchasing enrichment toys for the long-term resident animals.

We have a number of animals being held at the shelter for a long period time due to their court case. These animals greatly benefit from enrichment toys such as puzzle feeders and other boredom-buster type toys. These toys unfortunately aren't cheap, and aren't indestructible, so they need to be replaced regularly, and extra funding from the Petfinder Foundation helps purchase those enrichment items.

How many pets did this grant help?

The grant funds received covered the cost of one enrichment toy.

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

Unfortunately since the boredom buster toys are most frequently used on court animals, photos cannot be shared. One of the dogs who likes to play with toys is Daisy, pictured. From Facebook: “Daisy is a sweet girl looking for a family who is willing to give her the time and attention she needs. She loves to play with toys and would love someone to play fetch with. She’ll be a great addition to a hound-loving family!”
