WENATCHEE- Wenatchee Valley Humane Society received a $1,000 Dogs Playing for Life Mentorship Program grant from The Petfinder Foundation, according to a press release issued Thursday.

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.

The grant program is part of the shelter’s commitment to enhancing shelter dogs’ quality of life by allowing them to engage in natural social behaviors, according to the press release.

The Petfinder.com Foundation assists the 12,000+ 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.
