"The On Our Way Home Project”! - Camp Bow Wow's Bow Wow Buddies foundation will provide participating and approved shelters operational training, marketing guidance, real estate and construction assistance for remodels and new facilities and additional instruction and tools that have made the Camp Bow Wow franchises flourish.  Further, the On Our Way Home Project will train shelter managers wishing to incorporate socialization for pets, ultimately helping the animals to become more adoptable.

In addition to offering tips and tools to develop and improve shelters nationwide, ultimately improving the quality of life for shelter animals and making them more adoptable, Camp Bow Wow will also choose one shelter in need of renovations and time dedicated by trained professionals to realize an extreme makeover at that location -

As part of the On Our Way Home Project, Camp Bow Wow has partnered with the Humane Society of the S. Platte Valley, a rescue organization that specializes in working with animals to adjust them to a play environment to improve their social skills. Joining in the effort is Camp Bow Wow’s real estate and construction partner, FranProp, which is teaming up with participating shelters to help design and build facilities to mimic those of Camp Bow Wow. The facilities are set to offer play yards both inside and outside, aimed at accommodating all day play for shelter dogs along with web cams for potential adopters to view the pups at play.

We are currently not accepting new applications for the 2012 calendar year, please check back in 1st Quarter for news of additional grant opportunities.
