Capital Area Rescue Effort: Grant Report

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

Purchase of play/exercise runs.

Allows our dogs to socialize with one another and get play and exercise. This helps reduce their level of stress and allows them to be happier.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Hugo (first photo) has cerebellar hypoplasia, so his back legs sometimes move in an unpredictable manner. We affectionately refer to him as “Wonkie Butt.” Hugo doesn’t get along with many dogs, except for Joy, another of our adoptable dogs (second photo). The new play/exercise pens allow the two of them to be together. Hugo and Joy continue to be available for adoption. The third photo shows Hugo and Joy in one of the play/exercise pens.
