Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The money was used to purchase dog martingale collars and Freedom No-Pull harnesses for the shelter dogs.

The grant helped by having the proper collars and harnesses to make walking our dogs a much more enjoyable experience for the dog and the person walking. It is also a great training tool.

How many pets did this grant help?

Hundreds of dogs will use these collars and harnesses.

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

One of our small dogs was very skittish and it was unsafe to walk her, since with regular collars she would pull out of them and could run away. With these new collars, that is not possible.
