In 2023, one new DOGS RULE.™ grant was awarded and a second continued from 2022. 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. The 2023 grantees were:
|Humane Rescue Alliance: First half of $100,000 DOGS RULE.™ grant for 2023 and 2024 to support the WayStation Transport Program, a large-scale, integrated network that transports 2,500 – 3,000 animals each year from overcrowded shelters to locations where adoption rates are higher. The WayStation Program also works in conjunction with HRA’s disaster deployment program, allowing HRA to help shelters overwhelmed with pets needing emergency sheltering and decrease shelter populations before a storm hits.||Washington||DC||$50,000|
|Pennsylvania SPCA: Second half of $100,000 DOGS RULE.™ grant for 2022 and 2023 to create a full-time behaviorist position, which will assess dogs for behavioral challenges that may interfere with adoption success, address them with a behavior modification plan, and support adopters with training materials and post-adoption consultations. The program will address the most common behavioral reasons for post-adoption return, including arousal, reactivity, stranger, danger, fear and anxiety.||Philadelphia||PA||$50,000|
