Three Sisters Pet Rescue/Ohio Hound Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the grant to help some dogs become more adoptable. And also to increase visibility at adoption events.
By paying for extra vet care (beyond just neuter/ shots and routine care).
By allowing a trainer/daycare evaluation.
By helping us purchase items to be used at adoption events.
How many pets did this grant help?
Many, but two in particular.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Martin came to us with very bad ear infections and some rotted teeth. He was labeled “stubborn and reactive” initially, but this was all due to pain. Because of the grant from the Petfinder Foundation and Orvis, we were able to deal with Martin’s pain and prove that he is an awesome dog. He has now been adopted by a loving family that reports he is the best-behaved dog ever. I am attaching some pics of Martin while he was in rescue and one pic of him with his new family.
The other dog being helped by the grant is about to receive an FHO [femoral head ostectomy – a surgical procedure designed to alleviate hip pain]. I can report back on him soon!
