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.
