Denison Animal Welfare Group: Dog Field Trips/Short-Term Fostering Grant

What was the money or product used for?

We purchased leashes, harnesses, martingale collars, and tags.

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

DAWG was able to send people and pets out fully equipped for field trips with safe collars and leashes to prevent escape. The field-trip program helped our pets by letting them be seen out and about in the community and shared across social media.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Sherlock was an older dog who hated the shelter environment. He appeared scary and loud, barking and snapping at anyone who walked by his kennel. The odds of him ever being adopted were slim. We sent him out to a foster home with the materials purchased with the Petfinder Foundation grant and he turned into a different animal! Happy and pleasant, his behavior changed completely. He was adopted a short time later.
