Misfits, Mutts and Meows: Grant Report

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

We utilized the money from the grant to order 11 Kuranda beds, 30 West Paws Design Zogoflex toys and 10 water buckets.

By receiving the grant we decided to revamp the kennel area that the beds and toys would go in. We increased the number of runs by two, getting dogs out of large crates, and rearranged to ensure ease of use. Each run now has a Kuranda bed to keep the dogs off the concrete floor, toys to play with and a new water bucket to keep them in water. We also have a radio playing music during the day. The dogs are much more comfortable and occupied with the new additions to their runs.

How many pets did this grant help?

15 dogs are housed in these runs at this time.

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

Many of our kids are long-timers. Gucci and Freeway (first photo) are both bully-breed kids who have been with us a long time. They both are reaching double digits in age. To be able to give them a bed for comfort and to keep them off the floor is a wonderful thing. Gucci is a chewer, so having the Zogoflex toys to chew helps keep her occupied. These two older girls feel much better and have more energy in the morning after a good night’s sleep on their new Kuranda bed! Both girls still are awaiting homes. Meet Freeway:

Chloe (second and third photos) is another older girl who is so happy she has a nice bed and toys to play with. Meet Chloe:
