East Tennessee Boxer Rescue: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

Money was used to purchase dog beds from Costco, Kong Cares, and treats from Amazon and Costco. They all loved them. Thank you so much for helping us enrich their lives.

This grant helped every dog in our care; all dogs received pet beds to use while in our program and Kongs to use while they are still at their foster homes. They really enjoy the cow hooves, beds, and Kongs.

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

Reagan is a super chewer and he loves to destroy things. He personally went through more than 20 cow hooves. He loves his Kong toys. Reagan came to us from a local animal shelter where he was going to be put to sleep that week due to the shelter not having enough space. He is approximately 1 year old, 100% boxer, housebroken and crate-trained! This sweet boy has a lot of energy and would need a fenced-in yard. He loves to play and does well with other dogs and children. Since he is active, we don’t believe he would do well with cats. Reagan is up-to-date with veterinary care and is ready for his forever home! Meet him:
