The money raised from this program allows us to reach further out in to the community to rescue dogs and puppies from shelters where they might otherwise not have a chance to find a forever home. Alana was a 2-3 year-old Stray Bulldog mix at the Holmes County Dog Kennels. It is a shelter that has a lot of difficulty finding homes for the dogs they find. We made arrangements for Alana to come up to Elyria and within a week – Alana was off to her new home. Grants like the one received make this type of work possible. Alana is now happy in her new home and has the second chance that she deserved.
