April winner


Saving Grace

Saving Grace

The evaluation continues when the dog is brought into the Saving Grace program. Dogs do not live in kennel runs; they have access to lots of fresh air and space to run and play together with other dogs. We observe their interaction with new dogs and people on a daily basis. Dogs at Saving Grace receive any and all medical treatment necessary. This includes, but is not limited to: spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart worm test and treatment (if necessary), worming, and flea and tick prevention. All dogs get a microchip which can be traced back to the adopter and to Saving Grace. While at Saving Grace, dogs are crate trained, begin a housebreaking routine and basic manners such as walking nicely on a leash, how to sit and not to jump on people. Each dog is individually handled and observations about their personalities are noted.
