York County SPCA: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

The grant funds were used to purchase two outdoor kennel runs for the dogs in quarantine.

This grant allows us to provide a safe and contained outdoor space for the dogs that are in our quarantine area. Quarantined dogs were only able to go outside on short walks to a designated area to relieve themselves, and outdoor time was very limited. The purchase of these kennels will enrich the experience of our quarantined dogs for years to come.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Isabella has been in our care since late July. Her owner was unable to afford her veterinary care and as a result she was signed over to us. She has been in quarantine since she arrived and most likely will remain there until the end of September. The outdoor time that she will now be able to have will be invaluable to her general well-being.
