Special to the
Opelika Observer

Earlier this month, the Lee County Humane Society received a “Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship” program grant from the Petfinder Foundation.
The 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. This grant program is part of a commitment to enhancing shelter dogs’ quality of life by allowing them to engage in natural social behaviors.
The Petfinder Foundation assists the 12,000-plus animal shelters and rescue groups that post their adoptable pets on Petfinder. A nonprofit 501c3 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.
