Associated Humane Societies: Dog and Cat Food Grant (Invitation Only) Grant Report

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

The donation of food was used to feed the many cats and dogs we have at our shelter. We are the largest shelter in this area and the number of animals we get in on a daily basis is staggering. This donation was very much appreciated and needed.

This donation helped to provide food for so many of those under our care.

How many pets did this grant help?

We have 200 dogs and usually more than 100 cats on any given day, so a very large number of animals were provided for.

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

One of the dogs who benefited from this donation was Ginger (first photo), who is still available for adoption and actually resides as our office dog. Ginger came in very fearful and anxious, so we decided to keep her with us in the office to socialize her. She now loves everyone and is great with cats and dogs her size. She does not care for smaller dogs, so a home with a smaller dog is not recommended. She has a sweet and affectionate personality with everyone and is extremely intelligent. She is spoiled by everyone here, but we still wish for a permanent home for her. Ginger has a special position here, as she visits libraries in the area and the children read to her. Because she is so well-behaved and sweet, she is a favorite!
