Grant will help save more pets in Haywood County
Haywood County Animal Services announced a $7,500 grant investment from Petco Love to help newly adopted dogs, who are wonderful but somewhat lacking in manners, to stay adopted.
The funds will be invested to provide further training for these dogs. Since their founding as Petco Foundation, they have empowered organizations with nearly $330 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. In addition, they have helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like Haywood County Animal Services, nationwide.
“So many of the dogs coming into the shelter have not been taught the basics of good manners,” said Howard Martin, Director of Haywood County Animal Services. “This grant will enable us to provide additional assessment and training that will help ensure that once adopted, these dogs will not be returned because they are too hard to handle.”
