Life On Paws Rescue: Grant Report

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

The grant money was used to install a fenced-in play yard for the rescue dogs to play and interact.

The dogs at the rescue can now use the play yard to socialize and play with one another while they await their forever homes. The time in the play yard helps them to learn from each other to read social cues and learn acceptable play habits.

How many pets did this grant help?

There are currently six dogs who are using the play yard.

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

Twitty is a female mixed breed who came to the rescue completely afraid of people and other dogs. She would cower if any person or dog approached her. She also appeared to have no experience on a leash. Since the play yard was installed, Twitty has spent time there with two other dogs from the rescue and, while she isn’t playing with them yet, she isn’t running away, and has relaxed when they approach her. Twitty has not been adopted yet but this is a huge step forward for her. Meet Twitty here.
