Wood County Humane Society: Dogly Do Good Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money from the Dogly Do Good Grant helped spay five dogs, provided a dental for one dog, grooming for two dogs, vaccinations, microchips, heartworm tests, and heartworm prevention for six dogs, heartworm treatment for one dog, and a tablet for our Outreach Coordinator who will use it to help complete adoptions of our animals at adoption events.
The Wood County Humane Society is so grateful to have received the Dogly Do Good grant, and this grant helped us "Do Good" for our animals and the families that adopted them. We rely heavily on public donations, so we are always looking for ways to help us care for our animals.
How many pets did this grant help?
Seven dogs, and countless more (cats and dogs) will be helped every time our Outreach Coordinator completes an adoption at an adoption event.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This grant helped us provide necessary care to ready our animals for their forever homes (spaying/neutering, microchips, vaccinations, heartworm tests and prevention), and transformed two unkempt little dogs into beauties (first photo). The Dogly Do Good grant also helped us provide immediate heartworm treatment for a dog that desperately needed it — we actually received the grant before this dog came in, so this grant was also a HUGE blessing for this dog, named Israel (second photo). We also thought of long-term use for the shelter with this grant, and used part of the funds to purchase a tablet that will allow our Outreach Coordinator (third photo) and staff/volunteers to complete adoptions at adoption events, on-site, for years to come!
Here are messages from two adopters who took home dogs helped by the Dogly Do Good Grant:
Nate and Stephanie write: “We have been lucky enough to have Dorothy/Leela (fourth photo, left) in our home for almost three months, and she has been the love of our lives since the day we brought her home. She loves cuddling anywhere around the house and loves meeting new people. She knows how to sit, shake hands, and high-five. She is such an angel and we are so happy that we have her! She is so loving and anybody that spends time with her can’t help but love her back. She’s a part of our family.”
The Tesnows write: “Here is Maia (fourth photo, right), formally Jenna, enjoying her first holiday with her pug sister, Moo. We are so thankful to have her with our family. We love her a ridiculous amount. Happy holidays!”
