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

Hoodies and handouts and giveaways for the students

Not only are we educating kids about rescue, spay/neuter, ID tagging, microchipping and more, we are reaching more potential adopters!

How many pets did this grant help?

Countless - the effects of education ripple outward and onward.

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

This grant helped support our Syosset High School Dog Rescue Group and other humane-education programs we have where we go into other schools. High-school kids learn about rescue and help at adoption events and learn how to care for dogs and help network the adoptable pets! At the event pictured, the kids helped many dogs, including the ones in the photo: Buffo, Aurora, Syd, Pretty Girl and Toby!
