Money was used to send three of our dogs to training.

It helped the dogs to listen and also the handlers to understand the dogs' issues and handle them better.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Lindy has done great in class. She is only 7 months old so she has lots of energy and this has helped her to control herself better. She knows a few commands and this has also helped her to not be so mouthy. She was in a foster home when her training started but since that time she has been returned to the shelter. Lindy gets to go to our adoption events regardless of where they are because she behaves herself so much better now. We haven’t gotten any applications on her, which is very surprising because she is not only a loving, friendly girl but very striking in her appearance. She will continue with training if we can get another volunteer to take her. Meet Lindy:
