We purchased a Canon EOS Rebel camera.

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

The grant enables volunteers to take wonderful photos of the pets in our care. These quality photos are used to advertise pets for adoption, raise funds for vet care and much more.

How many pets did this grant help?

Currently 30, but the number will continue to grow.

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

George Michael was adopted a few days after this awesome photo, taken with the Canon Rebel, was posted. George Michael is a very handsome guy but is a bit shy with strangers. He didn't have a lot of luck at adoption events due to this, but he was able to find the perfect home due to VOHAS receiving the Orvis grant from the Petfinder Foundation.
