Wag On Inn Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The money was used to purchase enrichment items for dogs in foster care.

Enrichment items help our dogs stay happy and healthy while they wait to find their forever homes. They are especially helpful for our younger, high-energy dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Woody is a young male pointer mix who has been in foster care for almost five months now. He still has a lot of puppy energy and barks and jumps on people, which has turned away many potential adopters. The Orvis Animal Care Grant has enabled us to purchase enrichment items to redirect his energy in a more positive way. He’s a very smart dog and loves to learn. He now knows sit, down, stay, touch, and look at me. You can meet Woody here.
