In 2022, one new DOGS RULE.™ grant was awarded and a second continued from 2021. DOGS RULE.™ grants are $100,000 grants provided over two years to develop and support an innovative initiative that can become a best practice for other shelters and rescues.
|San Diego Humane! Second half of $100,000 DOGS RULE.(TM) grant for 2021 and 2022 to create a Welcome Committee program that helps abbreviate the acclimation period for dogs entering the shelter, build relationships with people, and decrease fear, anxiety, stress and frustration. The focus is incoming dogs who display fear- or stress-based behaviors during their initial 24 hours in care. By helping dogs overcome transitional stress when they enter the shelter, the goal is to reduce stress-related behaviors and help dogs find new homes faster.||San Diego||CA||$50,000|
|Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PSPCA)! $100,000 to support its Adopting Great Behaviors program which will allow PSPCA to create a full-time Behaviorist position who will facilitate adoption success for dogs with a range of challenging behaviors. The Behaviorist will support adoptive families who navigate challenging behaviors and assess dogs for behavioral challenges that may interfere with adoption success. Following adoption, the program will provide training materials and post-adoption online consultations to continue this crucial work at home.||Philadelphia||PA||$50,000|
