Salt Lake County Animal Services: Dog Field Trip/Short-Term Fostering Grant Report

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

Backpacks, leashes, harnesses, "Adopt Me" vests, "Adopt Me" bandannas, "Adopt Me" leash covers, poop bags and holders, and dog water bottles.

This grant helped us get all the supplies needed for our Hounds Around Town field-trip program.
This program will help us learn more about the dogs here and get better photos, helping them get adopted faster.

How many pets did this grant help?

So far we have had 25 field trips done.

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

Teddy (first and second photos) was a 1-year-old Lab with LOTS of energy. Going on his Hounds Around Town adventure helped him get out and explore. He was able to go for a short hike and get a bath. He was adopted one month after arriving in the shelter.
