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?

I have already reported on Martin's teeth. And I'm happy to say he continues to thrive in his forever home.

Another dog to benefit from this grant is Homer. He is still in foster care, recovering from a more serious problem.

We used the money for extraordinary vet care (over and above normal spay/neuter and vaccines), as well as for some bright bandanas and leashes to show them off at 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.

Homer is a 2-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound who spent two years on the end of a chain. He was never able to hunt because of his hip dysplasia. Homer was in a lot of pain when we received him into our care. He is only 2 years old, though, and is recovering quickly from his FHO (femoral head ostectomy). He will be starting physical therapy in a couple of weeks, as soon as his hip is healed enough. The second photo shows him before surgery. The other three are from the day he came “home” after his surgery.
