Madison County Animal Services: Bissell Rescue U Grant Report

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

The money we received from the Bissell Renovation Grant was used to paint our kennels inside and out, repair cracks to the surfaces, and seal the kennel floors.

The Bissell Renovation Grant has helped us provide a safer, more sanitary environment for the homeless animals that come into our facility each year. The remodeled kennels are also aesthetically pleasing to adopters who come into our facility, providing a bright and clean look for them to view the animals in.

How many pets did this grant help?

We expect this grant to provide an upgraded environment to over 2,000 dogs in the coming years.

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

Logan, a 9-year-old black Cocker Spaniel, was often overlooked due to our dark kennels and his dark fur. He wasn’t one to run to the front of the cage to greet everyone and no one really took a second look at him as they passed by. After our kennels were painted a bright and cheerful shade of yellow, Logan really stood out. We took a new picture of him and reposted his picture in the newly painted kennel and he was adopted the next day!
