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

Jane Austin is a dog who came to the shelter last summer. When Jane arrived, she was very overwhelmed with the noise and daily activity of the shelter environment. She is a dog who needs time to get to know a new person, so Jane found visitors approaching her kennel scary. Using Wobblers and Kongs filled with yummy treats helped Jane not focus on the things she found uncomfortable. Happy news: Jane was successfully adopted in January!
