South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter: Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Grant Report

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

This was used to send one of our staff members to a Dogs Playing for Life mentorship session.

It has helped tremendously. It has helped our staff member gain more knowledge and more self esteem. She has done such a great job keeping the dogs in our care socialized and learning more about their behavior, which obviously makes them more adoptable.

How many pets did this grant help?

200+ since November

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

Jeanie (first photo, with a friend) came in as a stray, beyond broken and scared. She would shake and cower in her cage, afraid of everyone. Karla got her out into playgroup and she just blossomed. Watching her play and enjoy the company of the other dogs made us all very happy. She was just adopted this weekend and now has a wonderful family — and a doggie companion — who love her.
