Panhandle Animal Shelter, Ponderay, has received a $1,000 from Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Program grant from The Petfinder Foundation.

The Petfinder Foundation Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Program grant is used to cover tuition cost for one person, from the Petfinder member’s organization, to attend a Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship session. Officials said the grant program is part of the foundation’s commitment to enhancing shelter dogs’ quality of life by allowing them to engage in natural social behaviors.

The Petfinder.com Foundation assists the 12,000-plus animal shelters and rescue groups that post their adoptable pets on Petfinder.com.

A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Petfinder Foundation helps adoption organizations find homes for the pets in their care through its Sponsor A Pet, disaster fund, quality of life and other programs. Since its founding in 2003, the Petfinder Foundation has given more than $20 million in cash and product grants to shelters and rescue groups in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

“We are extremely grateful to partners like Petfinder Foundation for understanding the significance dog playgroups can have on shelter dogs and the positive impact this training will have not only on the dogs in our area, but our team,” said Mandy Evans, executive director of Panhandle Animal Shelter.

“There is nothing like seeing a fearful dog completely transformed through play.”

Panhandle Animal Shelter posts its adoptable pets at www.petfinder.com/shelters/ID31.html.
