Angels Among Us Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

It was used to help many of our animals in need of care and nourishment back to health. We used this for babies who were left in a Dumpster and for a young pup with one leg that needed to be amputated. We cannot help animals without grants and we are more than thankful. I appreciate everything you did for our rescue. And we hope to apply some more. It is amazing help for our puppies and babies. Thank you so much.

It helped save the lives of three and get them adopted; it helped us to be able to bring them to health and bring them to their forever homes. Olivia was saved and now we can bring more in because we had the funds to help her!

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

This grant helped bring Olivia back to health, as you can see from the before and after photos. Olivia is an adorable young chestnut terrier mix who was found dumped in a box inside the Dumpster at a vet clinic. She was with her buddy Oscar, who was protecting her. While they were both in rough shape and very underweight, Olivia was the worse of the two. We did not know if she would survive, as she was so weak, dehydrated and thin. Seeing the two of them inside a Dumpster was shocking and so sad. Olivia rebounded with special care and love! She gained weight and looks great. She is now healthy and has a forever home, as does Oscar. It is so sweet and we are so thankful and happy! Thank you so much for all you do to help with the animals 🙂
