Friends of Rocky Mount Animals: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

Medical [care] for dogs that were brought into our program. It helped pay for exam, fecal [tests], vaccines, spaying/neutering, microchipping, everything we needed to get the animals ready to be available for adoption. Thank you so much for your support.

We were able to bring in more dogs than we normally would have brought in because we had the added funds needed to help get them medically ready to be available for adoption.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We pulled a litter of four pups (two males who were black, two females – one tan, one white/tan). We have been able to take scared little pups who weighed maybe 2 to 3 lbs. Now they are each about 10 lbs. All are doing well, are ready to be spayed/neutered next week and have loving forever homes waiting for them. We were able to pull 5 other larger, slightly older pups and get them medically ready to go to their forever homes. They now or will soon have very happy forever homes. Thank you for all your help and support!
