Kind Keeper, Inc.: Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Grant Report

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

Paid tuition for volunteer to attend Dogs Playing for Life mentorship in November 2018.

This grant helped our volunteers learn how to safely manage playgroups with the shelter dogs. Additionally, they learned safe techniques for getting animals into and out of kennels, walking dogs safely, and general canine-behavior observation skills.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We have several dogs who have been in the shelter for more than a year. Cognac is a bully mix who gets along well with people and children and, thanks to learning more about playgroups and canine-behavior observation, we now know that she does get along with other dogs. Although she may be selective, we can tell quickly if it is a good match. Cognac has not been adopted yet and we really don’t understand why, other than the fact that she has an imposing appearance. We continue to take her to events and introduce her to potential adopters. We know that one day the right people will come along and find her! Meet Cognac here.
