Southern Nevada Bully Breed Rescue: Shelter Challenge Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant money was used to help us secure a larger facility to care for the dogs in our rescue.
We received the grant right on time to help us secure a larger facility for our rescue dogs. This new facility is in a central location which is easy for adopters and volunteers to get to, and can house many more dogs than our previous location. In fact, we were immediately able to save 6 additional death row dogs which included 2 seniors.
How many pets did this grant help?
This grant has helped over 40 dogs to date.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Daddy is a 6 year old Cane Corso mix. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner, for reasons unknown. Being quite charming and loveable, he became a volunteer favorite. However, due to his age and being listed as a “pit bull mix,” no adopters expressed any interest in this big boy and he was running out of time very quickly. Because we now had the extra space, we were able to save Daddy and bring him in to rescue. He still hasn’t found a home, but has lots of interest from adopters and we know it’s just a matter of time until we find his perfect forever home! We love him dearly and are so happy we were able to save him.
