Humane Society of Southeast Missouri: Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Grant Report

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

We sent a staff member to the Dogs Playing for Life mentorship program

Our understanding of and ability to help dogs with behavioral issues have both been greatly improved.

How many pets did this grant help?

We have taken in more than 1,600 dogs in the past year, and the program and the knowledge it has provided will go on to help more dogs year after year.

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

Slick (first photo) is a dog who specifically was helped by the mentorship program. He was a male pit mix and we were able to work with him so that he got along better with other animals and develop his friendship skills with other animals. He did go on to be a adopted to a lovely family.
